While in Donga local government council on Thursday to crown and give the staff of office to the Gara-Donga of Donga, Sanvalla Varzoa Shimbura Gargbanyi, Taraba State Governor Darius Dickson Ishaku was jeered ( ll).
Ishaku received jeers when he stood to honor the late Theophilus Y. Danjuma, the former minister of defense.
The audience, which kept booing the governor, was armed with placards bearing various slogans, and they pledged not to support him any more since they were sick of his administration.
Recall that the Ishaku representative was recently jeered at Jalingo, the state capital, for denying him the chance to speak to the crowd at a reception held for the late governor Jolly T. Nyame.
The audience, who was screaming “bamu so, bamu yi,” meaning we are no longer interested, and waving posters of opposition candidates running for elected offices in 2023, expressed regret over the governor’s broken promises.
The crowd vowed to prevent the governor from achieving his goal of becoming a senator in 2023, citing his alleged failure to address the hardship in the state and his refusal to pay university lecturers after their participation in the recently suspended Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) strike, among other things.
The irate youngsters allegedly chased the governor from Wukari on Wednesday night and promised to stop him from spending the night there.
Young people in Wukari have reportedly accused him of embezzling state funds, mortgaging the state through enormous debts, and general terrible governance.
Additionally, it was learned that Ishaku had to evacuate to Takum town in the Takum local government region of the state for safety before returning to Donga on Thursday for the show due to the unrest that erupted in Wukari on Wednesday night.
