Taraba Governor, Darius Dickson Ishaku, on
Tuesday appealed to youths in the state to
support his second term bid.
“I want you (the youth) to go out during the election and re-elect
us. I will empower you to be millionaires; you will be exporting
milk and meat; you will be driving Mercedes Benz, instead of Keke
NAPEP,” he said.
The Nation reports that Ishaku spoke during his third year
anniversary and Democracy Day celebration held at the Jolly
Nyame stadium Jalingo.
He said: “Today, over 3000 youths have been employed and
thousands empowered through the Rescue Mission’s skills
acquisition programme.
“Those empowered are now self-reliant and have become
employers of labour. The story of one Aisha is a good example.
She was empowered; she later employed a widow and five other
persons and her business is still running.
“When you elected me in 2015, you did not know me well. Now,
you know who Ishaku is; now, you know who DDI is, who Daram
Dam Dam is, because of what I have done for you
“Some Germans came to invest in tourism in the State, on getting
to the mountain in Gembu, they were crazy. But upon hearing
news of attacks and killings, they all left,” he said.
He said, apart from tourism, he has achieved tremendously in all
other sectors, including agriculture, education, health and
infrastructure, adding that the Nigerian Medical Association gave
him award because of the hospital he built in Wukari and the
ongoing reconstruction of the hospitals in Bambur and Gembu.
