Taraba state Governor, Darius Ishaku has described as wickedness the recent motion that was moved by the Deputy Minority Leader of the Senate, Senator Emmanuel Bwacha against the arrest and detention of 14 youth from Takum local government area of Taraba state by the police.

The state Commissioner for Information and Reorientation, Barr. Danjuma Adamu who was reacting to the allegation made by the Senator representing Taraba South at the National Assembly said it is clearly that Sen. Emmanuel Bwacha was defending the arrest of a group called ” Bwacha Brought Ups”.

“The attention of the Taraba State Government has been drawn to a publication on the social media signed by one Disebe S. Bala Donga, SA New Media to Senator Emmanuel Bwacha linking Governor Darius Ishaku to the arrest and detention of some youth from Takum LGA by the police.

“The purported writer claimed that the youth “were mischievously lured by the governor to jalingo” before they were whisked away by the police for an illegal detention for a bailable offence.

“No wonder, he is trying to defend the indefensible as the law is already taking its course.

” In view of this falsehood, the Taraba State Government is compelled to react and clarify the issue”. Said Adamu.

The Commissioner maintained that Governor Darius Ishaku has always been a promoter of the principles of separation of powers and cannot do anything to interfere in the duties of the Nigerian police or the Judicial arm of government.

According to him, it will be a preposterous for the Governor to descend himself so law to meddle and influence the action of the police in the state.

“The police are trained to detect and fight crime and criminality as this is their constitutional responsibility, which is exactly what they have done in this case.

“The sponsors of the youth, particularly Senator Emmanuel Bwacha has anything against the action of the police for the arrest and detention of the 14 youths, he should go to the court to seek redress.” The Commissioner alleged.

Barrister Danjuma Adamu, noted that it was wrong for Sen. Emmanuel Bwacha or group to link Governor Darius Ishaku to the arrest and detention of the youth simply because someone or some people are trying to seek cheap publicity.

“The Garage Governor stands too gain nothing from the arrest and detention of the youth and the Taraba State Government wants to advise those trying to drag the Governor into the issue to look elsewhere”

” Governor Darius Ishaku’s concern at all time is the promotion of security, regality, peace and progress of Taraba State. This has been his focus since he assumed power in May 2015 and he will continue to do so, by the grace of God.” The Commissioner concluded.

Our Correspondent recalled that Sen. Bwacha has accused the Taraba state government for the arrest of Fourteen Youths from his Constituency.

The resolution were sequel to a Point of Order raised by Sen. Emmanuel Bwacha (PDP-Taraba) at the plenary on Wednesday, 5 March, 2021.

Other resolution by the Senate included the directive on the National Judicial Commission (NJC) in collaboration with their state counterpart to investigate the acting Chief Registrar of Taraba High Court, Bartholomew Kaigama, over judicial abuse among others.

The Federal High Court sitting in Jalingo, Taraba State Capital on Friday gave an order of interim injunction restraining Alhaji Abubakar Bawa from functioning as the state Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the state.

Justice Bala Usman issued the order in response to the application by the erstwhile acting Chairman of the party Mr. Inuwa Bakari, challenging the recent appointment of Bawa as the state chairman of the party.

A Certified True Copy of the injunction obtained by our Correspondent in Jalingo read in part that “upon this MOTION EX-PARTE dated the 31st day of March 2023 and filed on the same date coming up before this Honourable Court praying for the following reliefs:

“AN ORDER of INTERIM INJUNCTION restraining the 2nd Defendant Abubakar Bawa from acting, carrying out functions, and parading himself as the chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party Taraba State chapter pending the hearing and determination of the Motion on Notice.

“AN ORDER restraining the 1st Defendant from taking any step (s) that may negatively affect the membership right of the Plaintiff as the acting chairman of the 1st Defendant pending the hearing and determination of the Motion on Notice.

“AN ORDER restraining the 1 Defendant by itself or any of its organs at any level from expelling, suspending, reprimanding, censuring, fining, department from any party office and removal of the Plaintiff from office pending the hearing and determination of the Motion on Notice.

“AND for such further or other Order(s) as this Honourable Court may deem fit to make in the circumstances”. 

The Injunction further read that “upon reading the affidavit in support of the Motion paper, sworn to by one Alhaji Bakari Inuwa, Male, Adult, Nigerian Citizen, of Old Pantisawa Road, Nyamusala, Jalingo, Taraba State, filed in the Registry of this Court on the 31st day of March 2023, and after hearing Chief C. C. Damba Mbanaso, Esq. of Counsel for the Plaintiff/Applicant moved in terms of the Motion paper, it is hereby ordered as follows:

“That an order of INTERIM INJUNCTION is hereby granted restraining the 2nd Defendant Abubakar Bawa from acting, carrying out functions, and parading himself as the chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party Taraba State chapter pending the hearing and determination of the Motion on Notice.

“That an Order is made restraining the 1st Defendant from taking any step (s) that may negatively affect the membership right of the Plaintiff as the acting chairman of the 1st Defendant pending the hearing and determination of the Motion on Notice.

“That an Order is made restraining the 1 Defendant by itself or any of its organs at any level from expelling, suspending, reprimanding, censuring, fining, debarment from any party office and removal of the Plaintiff from office pending the hearing and determination of the Motion on Notice”.

Justice Usman, however, announced that the matter is adjourned to the 9th of May, 2023 for a hearing.

Recalled that Governor Darius Ishaku had recently appointed his Senior Special Adviser on Political Affairs, Alhaji Abubakar Bawa as the state Chairman of the party, a move some people described as trying to control the party machinery even after leaving office on May 29th.

When contacted through telephone, the embattled party Chairman, Alhaji Abubakar Bawa confirmed that he was aware of the court case but did not receive any surmon.

“Frankly speaking I don’t know anything but I heard that I was taken to court but nobody bring a surmon to me, nobody call me and I did not go to the court, that is the only thing I know,” Bawa added.

When asked whether he will still go to the office on Monday, Abubakar Bawa said “I am a law-abiding citizen, so, since the court has given an order I will comply.”

Taraba State Governor-elect, Col. Kefas Agbu (Rtd) has pledged to transform the state within his hundred days in office.

Agbu made the promise on Wednesday while addressing a large gathering at his house shortly after he received the certificate of return from the resident Commissioner of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Umar Muktar Gajiram in Jalingo.

The Governor-elect, Col. Kefas Agbu (Rtd) alongside his Deputy, Alhaji Aminu Alkali while thanking the people of Taraba State for believing in them and giving them the mandate also promised to run an all-inclusive government.

“I promise you that by the grace of God, we will have unity, peace, and development. 

“We will create job opportunities for the teaming unemployed youth, and by his grace, we will do everything that a government supposes to do for its citizens to make Taraba great,” Agbu assured.

According to the Governor-elect, (rtd) Col. Kefas Agbu, the issue of religion is between man and God, therefore, he urged the people of the state to embrace one another and pray for the incoming administration.

“I am also urging you whenever you see us doing something that you feel is wrong, you should please call our attention in decent manners but not with insults, and I promise you we are going to carry everyone along,” he emphasized.

Some supporters and well-wishers who spoke to SAHEL REPORTERS Comrade Mannsir Audu from Gashaka, the former PDP state Women leader, Hon. Felicia Kaletus and the Taraba State Chairman of Rescue Teachers, Comrade Sylvanus Acha prayed for the new administration of (rtd) Col. Kefas Agbu for God’s guidance, and expressed optimism that the new government will change the narrative of the state in terms of development.

“Our expectations from his administration are very high from this new administration but we are very optimistic that he will do much better,”.

However, some elected new members into the Taraba State House of Assembly Mr. Nelson Len from the Nguroje constituency, and Mrs. Veronica Alhassan from the Bali I constituency all under the platform of the people’s Democratic Party PDP, appreciated their constituents and promised them good representation.

Meanwhile, Mrs. Veronica Alhassan and Hajiya Batulu Muhammed who also won the state house of assembly seat under the platform of the All Progressives Congress APC from Gashaka will be the two female legislators among the twenty-four house of assembly members in the state.
