Power-Hungry Governor Promises To Make Unemployed Youths Millionaires If Re-elected For 2nd Term

taraba governor makes youths millionaires

The Governor of Taraba State Darius Dickson Ishaku, today solicited support from the youths for his second term bid. He asked them to re-elect him in next year’s poll, promising he would make them millionaires.

He spoke during his third year anniversary and Democracy Day celebration held at the Jolly Nyame stadium Jalingo.

“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.

Governor Ishaku, who said his administration has done well in the last three years, assured Taraba people he will fulfill all his campaign promises in the remaining year.

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.

He noted there was no remarkable achievement in the state’s tourism sector, despite having the most potential, because of insecurity in the country and the fact that the Mambilla Hydroelectric Dam project has not been completed.

“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, and added: “if you had given me more peace, the developments would have been more.”

    this man really sounds like Imo State’s Governor that said that a criminal is better than a WEED smoker.. the problem here is that politicians in Nigeria have stolen so much public money to the extend there’s no sense of reasoning anymore remaining for them.
    Mr Governor just provide jobs for the employment, build schools and hospitals then KEEP YOUR MERCEDES BENZ.

      You are right@ Keep it real. I don’t know what these fools politicians take Nigeria youths for. I will do this, I will do that without lifting a finger and you want the same youth to vote for you again. Coming year 2019, Nigerian youths should go to the poll with their senses to determine their fate. If this man could not make you a millionaire during his first term, it going to be more difficult for him to do it now.

      Don’t let these people come with their national anthem and wipe out what is being left of you. Already they have set us back 60 years of underdevelopment. Do not collect a dime from any politician. Be warned.

    Continuing voting for these sets of mediocres will make us look like fools among international communities. From his statement, no one needs to be a prophet before he/she knows that this man has run out of idea. He is trying to convince the youths but never knew how to present it. He wants to make everyone a millionaire but let him start by feeding them first, imbecile.
