The Taraba State Governor, Darius Ishaku, said the reason he has been out of the state was because he is receiving medical attention in Abuja for the domestic accident he suffered.
The governor in a statement issued by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Bala Abu flayed the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state for promoting falsehood against him following his absence from the state.
“In the past couple of weeks, the All Progressives Congress in Taraba State, had orchestrated a campaign of hate and acrimony against the person and the administration of Darius Ishaku, the Executive Governor of Taraba State, taking advantage of the governor’s prolonged stay in Abuja, which was necessitated by an unfortunate domestic accident he had earlier suffered. As a result, His Excellency has had to stay back in Abuja to receive medical attention.
“But rather than show sympathy for the governor, the APC leaders have taken advantage of this unfortunate development to invent and promote all kinds of inanities and outright falsehood against him” Abu said.
Abu said that the Governor’s absence has in no way affected the smooth running of the state. He said people expect the leaders of the APC to praise the governor rather than criticize him.
