The spokesperson of the Taraba state chapter of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Mr. Aaron Atimas, on Friday lamented that “Taraba state has now moved from intensive care unit to mortuary.”
Atimas, who stated this while briefing journalists in Jalingo, noted that those conversant with the Taraba’s “mortifying situation are aware that the state is at the moment stagnant.”
He said it was sad that Taraba’s development had been “stagnant and completely frustrated by looting, greed, sheer wickedness and lack of interest for the social economic wellbeing of the people.”
“This is a complete betrayal of the people who entrusted their love and total support to a regime which paraded itself as representing a certain religious interest, only to turn out to be a monstrous devourer of our common wealth.
“The situation has become so pathetic and dire that even the once boisterous government offices have become proverbial grave yards for the lack of government business,” he said.
