Adamawa To Upgrade Her Cattle Markets To Improve IGR, Isn’t To Block Livestock Sale, Transport To Lagos



Spread the love

The heading “Adamawa to block livestock sales, transport to Lagos, others,” is a misleading metaphor; a misinformation and disinformation mischievously crafted

  • Upgrading the cattle market to improve cattle business for increased Internally Generated Revenue in Adamawa state is not in anyway suggesting blocking beef business or livestock market in other parts of the country, even though so risky a life-threatening the business has of recent turned out to be.
  • Heading would have been closely approximately to say that ‘Adamawa government to engage in beef business, to reduce security risk and improve IGR.
  • It isn’t brilliant the commercial arrangement that the state provides the fodder while other states milk the cattle; the arrangement must be reviewed

Adamawa state government has only reiterated her commitement to upgrade some of her cattle markets across the state with a view to revamping her revenue base for financial independence and effective execution of developmental projects.

This was made known at the sensitization gathering for proper implementation of the Adamawa Agribusiness support programme held at the Banquet hall of the government house in Yola.

Adamawa state Agribusiness support programme is a project aimed at revamping the economy of the state through agriculture and livestock businesses.

The Government deemed it necessary to raise awareness among traditional rulers and local government chairmen among other critical stakeholders on the project, to enable them further sensitize their subjects at the local levels to embrace the programme geared towards modifying the economy and by extension improving the internally generated revenue of the state

The secretary to the state government, Malam Bashiru Ahmad lamented that the economic base of the state, was not that brilliant as reflected in the low internal revenue base along with the meagre federal allocation that it become difficult for the state government to cater for the developmental needs of the state.

He however, said the present government was poised towards exploring ways of improving the internally generated revenue to enable the state become financially independent. Part of the measures, he revealed, is to upgrade the cattle markets and encourage the engagement into maize, beans, soyabeans among other livestock production to increase the IGR.

The SSG further challenged the traditional leaders among other stakeholders to help government open sensitization with the stakeholders in the market.

Spread the love

A faction of the Nigeria Union of Pensioners (NUP) in Taraba state on Thursday commenced 7 days of prayer and fasting for God to ensure Governor Darius Ishaku lost his Senatorial bid.

The Chairman of the faction, Comrade Silas Jafta who disclosed this to newsmen in Jalingo said the decision was to appeal to God to stop the governor from continuing his poor leadership style in the Senate after his abortive eight years as governor.

Jafta explained that the plight to which the governor has subjected pensioners, was inhuman enough for them to seek God’s intervention to stop his political career in the state.

“We have resolved to embark on 7 days of prayers to appeal to God to ensure that governor Darius Ishaku loses the Senate seat. Our decision is due to the inhuman situation he has subjected us to.

“For ten years now, we have not been paid our entitlements as retirees of the Taraba state government, some of our members have died as a result of the situation, we have written severally to the government through the secretary to the state government (SSG), and the speaker of the state house of assembly but the governor seems not to mind our plight.

“We have carried out peaceful demonstrations in demands for our legitimate entitlements but still no positive result. We were to go out for another protest yesterday Wednesday 18/1/2023, but the security refused to approve our request to carry out the demonstration on the directives of the governor.

“Following the directive of the governor for the security to stop us from staging the protest yesterday, it has proven to us that he, governor Ishaku does not mean well for us.

“Allowing him to proceed to the Senate after his abortive eight years of reign would be a disaster for Taraba state development,” he alleged.

According to Jafta, if Ishaku wins the Senate seat, it would be a disaster against development but his loss would be a blessing for the development of Taraba state.

Recalled that the pensioners in Taraba State had on Monday 24th of October 2022, renewed mass protest after 30 days of consecutive protests in August 2022.

However, recalled that the then Speaker of the Taraba State House of Assembly, Prof. Joseph Albasu Kunini refused to attend to the protesting pensioners after waiting for over four hours at the assembly’s gate.

Taraba Residents Lament Gov. Ishaku’s Poor Leadership, Prays For Better Person




Spread the love

Residents of Taraba state have expressed feelings on the type of person they wish to have as the next governor of the state. 

According to them, they prayed to God to provide them with a good leader like the former Governor Rev. Jolly Nyame or the late Danbaba Suntai but not another person like Ishaku’s type as the next governor.

The residents made their feelings known while fielding questions from journalists on who they wished to be their next governor irrespective of party affiliations.

But they simply answered that they do not want an Ishaku type, they want another Jolly Nyame or Danbaba Suntai to be the next governor of the state who would restore its lost glories of development.

They decried the current era of infrastructural decay, a situation they described as the abortive 8 years of governor Darius Ishaku in the state, and pray that the next governor should be in touch with the spirit of development to return the state to her former position of greatness.

The residents, Mr. Eric Nashuka Wukari, Jubri Ando, and Festus Agbu, while particularly lamenting the state of the Jolly Nyame stadium Jalingo, Taraba state college of nursing and midwifery Jalingo, Taraba state Specialist Hospital Jalingo, and the Taraba Motel which hitherto were the revenue hubs of the state, also alleged that the governor had abandoned the institutions to decay without constructing new ones to fix in the position.

“We wish to have another Jolly Nyame or late Danbaba Suntai to be the next governor of Taraba state. We don’t want another Darius Ishaku who would come and kill all the working sectors without establishing any, to fix the position.

“These great institutions are decaying to the last degree but the governor doesn’t mind rescuing them from becoming scrap and the specialist hospital is gradually becoming a disease contracting center due to lack of running costs to the institution since seven years ago.

“No meaningful project has been executed in the state since 2015, and the state debt profile has risen from N117 billion to over 300 billion naira.

“All the revenue-generating institutions you see in Taraba were established by either, Jolly Nyame or Late. Danbaba Suntai. We have never seen a poor government like the one of Governor Darius Ishaku, he has failed.

“He has had no meaningful project to be pointed at since 2015. He embarked on the construction of 192 km of rural roads since 2015 but up till now, non of the roads has been completed and the only greenhouse that he established has since collapsed,” they alleged.

They, however, expressed hope that “the best thing God would do to us as a people of Taraba state is to ensure that an Ishaku type is not elected again as governor of the state”.

Efforts to get a reaction to the allegations from the Special Adviser to Governor Darius Ishaku on Media and Publicity, Mr. Bala Dan Abu failed as he did not respond to an SMS sent to his inbox.
