Development: Stop being economical with the truth – APC knocks Taraba’s Ishaku



Development: Stop being economical with the truth – APC knocks Taraba’s Ishaku

Reacting to a recent interview with Channel Television, where Ishaku categorically stated that he has worked in all the 168 wards across the state, the leadership of the party, in an interactive session with media practitioners on Friday, expressed sadness that the Governor is being “economical with the truth. ”

Led by the state Chairman, Barrister Ibrahim Tukur El-Sudi, the leadership of the party said “everybody in Taraba State knows that the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) government has not been working in the state.”

Lamenting that all Tarabans, irrespective of religious, tribes and party affiliations “are in penury and in pains that we elected somebody who came to tell lies to Nigerians that he had worked” they challenged Ishaku to be man enough to conduct media practitioners in the state round the projects “he is claiming to have put in place in the entire 168 wards.”

Citing the former administration led by late governor Danbaba Suntai, who they said ignited development to the state by constructing four kilometers roads in all the sixteen local government councils of the state, the governor, as suggested by the party should concentrate on how to move the state forward and resist from “telling lies to Nigerians and the world at large. ”

Sad that “as at today only twelve local government councils have received their June salaries” the need for the governor to be upright, they said has become necessary for the growth of the state, stating that “we are calling on the Taraba state governor to stop telling the world what he has not done.”

Stressing the party’s readiness and determination to tread extra legitimate miles to “debunk what the governor has told the world ” they said we are challenging him to roll out the score cards of what he has done in the state.

The party, which could not fathom why the governor has gone as far as telling the world what is not visible in the state, said “all the hospitals in this state are merely consulting clinics as at today”.

According to the party, “none of the hospitals are optimally operating, they are just barely surviving because even the upkeep which they are supposed to get to keep them functioning, they don’t even get it on time.”

Stressing how “woefully PDP government in Taraba has failed ” their dreams of emerging victorious in the forthcoming polls, slated for 2023, they affirmed, would no doubt turn out to be a mirage.

Dwelling on how the “poor performance of PDP in the state ” the situation according to him, has given APC the upper hand as plans to receive decamped members from the ruling party in the state to APC, according to El-Sudi, are in top gear.

Festus Keyamo: Federal Government Cannot Borrow N1.1 Trillion to End ASUU Strike



Festus Keyamo, Minister of State for Labour and Employment, said on Friday that borrowing money to end the Academic Staff Union of Universities’ months-long strike was unrealistic.

He made the remark during an appearance on one the television channels.

“Should we borrow to pay N1.2 trillion a year?”

“You cannot allow one sector of the economy to hold you hostage and then blackmail you into borrowing N1.2 trillion for overheads when our total income would be around N6.1 trillion.” And you have to build roads, health centers, and other sectors.”
The Minister urged parents throughout the country to petition ASUU.

“Those who know them, like the President said the other time, appeal to their sense of patriotism,” he said.

“Let them go back to school.” They are not alone in Nigeria. They are not the only ones who benefit from federal funds. The nation cannot come to a halt because we want to meet ASUU’s demands.”

ASUU’s Demands

On February 14, ASUU began a four-week warning strike.

On March 14, the union extended the strike for another two months in order to allow the government to meet all of its demands. On May 9, a 12-week extension was announced.

The union has been on strike since May 9, vowing to continue until its demands are met.

Academics want better working conditions, the revitalization of public universities, and academic autonomy, among other things.

One point of contention for academics is the non-payment of N1.1 trillion in university revitalisation funds.

However, the Federal Government has stated that it does not have the funds to pay such a sum, citing low oil prices during the administration of Muhammadu Buhari.

According to reports, the agreement was reached in 2009.

Another issue is the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS).

The University Transparency and Accountability Solution was proposed by academics as an alternative payroll system (UTAS).
