A group under the auspices of the Southern Taraba Women and Youth Coalition has appealed to Governor Darius Ishaku to contest the Southern Taraba senatorial seat in 2023.
The co-convener of the group and member representing Ibi Constituency in the State House of Assembly, Mohammed Abdulkarim, explained that the group saw that Governor Ishaku has what the group called “an unquenchable spirit of development and love for his people.”
According to Abdulkarim, “The governor has proven to be a good ambassador, hence our decision to ask him to go back home and continue his good work as a senator representing the zone, come 2023.”
He added that the people in Southern Taraba have carefully followed the track record of the good works of the Governor, saying that he (Governor) should continue to render selfless service to the people.
He further explained that the people have seen an unprecedented level of development in the state during his tenure as the governor, adding that they have resolved as a group to avail him the opportunity to come back and serve again in the senate after his tenure as the Governor of Taraba State in 2023.
Responding, the state PDP chairman, Col. Kefas, while receiving the letter stated that the group’s singular action would strengthen the thinking as a party, concerning the Governor.
