Taraba: Bakariyya Movement Threatens Ishiaku Dairus’ Re-Election
A leader of Bakariyya Movement in Taraba state Hon. Sulaiman Bakari has stressed the need for people of the state to come out during the up coming governortirial and state House of Assembly election and use their permanent voters card to vote out Governor Darius Ishaku’s led administration and vote for Senator Sani Danladi for good governance.
Bakari a.k.a the Black Cap Revolution who made the call at a press conference held at Senate plaza in Jalingo, the state capital said, the call became imperative considering the poor performance of the Governor within almost four years of his leadership.
He noted that, despite hundreds of billions of naira the state had received under Darius’s watch as revenue accruing from the federation account, Paris club refund, and bailouts as well as several other billions of naira realized as internally generated revenue, the Governor cannot boast of any legacy project executed in the state to the credit of his administration.
According to him, it is public knowledge that Governor Darius Ishaku’s cardinal governance agenda is the pursuit of his personal aggrandizement and the primitive accumulation of state resources for distribution among his family members and cronies.
Hon. Sulaiman Bakari who lamented over the plight of civil servants on lack of payment of salaries as at when due, also described the situation of pensioners in the state as worst.
” As a strategist and grassroots politician with thousands of followers across the state and the country at large, posterity will not be kind to me if i should fold my arms and watch, while sheer mockery is being made of governance in my state”.
The Bakariyya Movement Leader further alleged that they were informed that, Governor Darius has redoubled his foot soldiers and earmarked huge amount of money for inducement of electorates and security agents, as well as INEC officials for the upcoming Saturday’s governortirial election .
However, Hon. Sulaiman Bakari appealed to all governortorial candidates of opposition parties in the interest of Taraba state to harmonize their differences and support the candidature of Alhaji Sani Abubakar Danladi in order to form a government that will serve the overall interest of all Tarabans.
” I wish to reiterate my appeal to Taraba state electorates to massively vote for all APC candidates for the Taraba state House of Assembly, so that they can give Alh. Sani Danladi the necessary support to implement his programs and policies in line with the APC manifesto”. Bakari emphasized”.
He therefore reiterated his appeal to the electorates in the state to come out en mass come Saturday 9th and vote for all APC candidates for the state Assembly, so that they can give Sani Danladi the necessary support to enable him implement his programs and policies in line with the APC manifesto.
Hon. Sulaiman Bakari however reminded Nigerians on President Muhammadu Buhari’s statement where he cautioned intending ballot box snatchers, and called on those that are being used for such act to desist from doing so for the sake of their lives.
