I’ll recover Taraba stolen funds -Acting gov


Acting Governor of Taraba State, Mr. Sanni Danladi, has
vowed to recover all funds allegedly stolen from the purse
of the state government by former political office holders.
Danladi’s resolve came as members of the People’s
Democratic Party in Taraba State have blamed the National
Working Committee of the party for not holding any of the
primaries for any of the elective positions in the state.
Since the commencement of the party’s primaries;  from
that of the House of Assembly, National Assembly to that of
the governorship, which is presently taking place in most
states of the country, the state has been left in the dark as
no primaries has been held in the state.
In a statement on Monday, PDP state chairman, Victor
Kona, said the “PDP National Working Committee members
are yet to resolve some internal electoral procedures for the
Taraba State Governorship, Senate, House of
Representatives and House of Assembly.”
He said the situation had led rumour mongers to insinuate
that primaries would not be held, advising party members to
disregard such rumours as the party, according to him,
would make available to the party members adequate
information whenever the NWC resolved the ” internal
electoral procedures.”
Meanwhil, Danladi has vowed work tirelessly to recover all
monies and properties that were illegally taken away from
the state.
His government, according to him, will as well ensure that
all “projects, including hospitals and schools, abandoned by
previous administrations were completed.
Danladi, who spoke in a statewide broadcast in Jalingo on
Monday, expressed dismay at the present financial
situation of the state which as stated by him, has made it
impossible for the government to foot the salary bills of civil
He said that he was not satisfied with the way and manner
the finances of the state was ruined by the sacked
administration and challenged the civil servants and the
people of the state at large to brace up for a hard time
He said ” I want to sound a note of warning to all,
especially, Civil Servants that there are challenges in the
state. We need to brace up for hard times. The situation
has gone so bad that the Banks were no longer ready to
continue giving us loans and overdrafts.”
