Ex-Ambassador Explains Why God Will Stop Taraba Gov


From GODWIN AGIA, Jalingo

A former Nigeria’s Ambassador to Trinidad and Tobego, Hassan Jika Ardo on Thursday explained the reason why God will answer the prayers of the Taraba State pensioners against Governor Darius Ishaku’s senatorial ambition.

Recall that pensioners in the state are currently on a seven-day prayer and fasting to plead with God for Governor Ishaku to lose his senatorial bid due to the inhuman situation the governor has subjected them into, since becoming governor in 2015.

Jika who is also the APC Coordinator of Independent Grassroots Presidential Campaign Council for Tinubu/Shetima in Taraba, explained that God has a mandate to listen to his children who cry on to him and take decisive actions against whoever that inflict an inhuman pain on them while demanding for their legitimate rights.

Jika said;”God will answer the state pensioners’ prayers in demanding that governor Darius Ishaku should lose his Senate ambition at the February election. God said both in the Bible and the Quran that, “I shall listen to my children’s cry and take decisive action against whoever that has inflicted them with pains, and I shall grant their prayer request.

“I am a retired civil servant with the Taraba state government and I am part of those that are on a 7-day prayer and fasting against the governor’s Senate bid. I sympathize with all pensioners in Taraba who have inhumanly been subjected into the sorry situation after serving the government for 35 years.

“Pension is a right after completing your legitimate service years as a civil servant. It is not a privilege that one would say he is doing you a favour.

“Some of the pensioners have lost their homes due to poverty. Their children have been engaged into unwilling activities that has even made the parents more hypertensive due to frustration and poverty that the governor has inflicted on them after serving the state for 35 years.

“Not that the governor is working and that has made him to forget the pensioners plight, he is the worst governor ever in the history of Taraba if not in the history of Nigeria. He has an abysmal record of governance with no meaningful project, even the ones that were built by previous administrations have been abandoned to decay.

“All we have today is a sharp division between ethnic and religious line, we have never had this in the history of Taraba since during the military era.

“He embarked on a renovation of three general hospitals since 2015 but none has been completed. I am surprised that since 2015, the renovation of the three general hospitals have been captured in all the state budgets presented to the state house of assembly.

“Almost all the state working agencies that were built by previous administration are decaying by the day. The Jolly Nyame stadium Jalingo, the specialist hospital Jalingo, Taraba state college of nursing and midwifery Jalingo, the Taraba Motel and many others are victims of infrastructural decay under governor Darius Ishaku.

“Taraba state and the people have never been like this. Poverty and the sharp division among ethnic and religious line brought by governor Ishaku is the worst experience one would never want to continue with.

“We are praying not because of hatred, we are praying because of the pain that has been inflicted on us. We believe that as it is written in all the holy books of God, our reason for praying against the governor’s Senate bid is genuine enough for God to answer”..
