    Taraba Muslims Council Knocks Governor Ishaku Over Marginalization

    Published

    The Taraba State Muslim Council on Friday decried what it describes as high level of discrimination against the Muslim Umma in the state by the state Governor, Architect Darius Ishaku in appointments and other benefits.

    The Chairman of the Council retired Khadi Abdul-min Abubakar who addressed the press conference in Jalingo said that efforts to get the government to correct the ugly trend have not yielded any results as the governor has continued to turn deaf ears  to their calls.

    “The Council has noted with sadness and dismay the gradual purging of Muslims at all levels of governance and civil service by the current administration of His Excellency Governor Darius Ishaku as the governor of Taraba state.

    “The Council has resisted adding her voice to public discourse about the insidious marginalization against the Muslim Ummah in  Taraba state by the Governor Ishaku-led administration. Several attempts by the council to redress the unfortunate situation seem to fall on deaf ears.  Infact the governor even seems emboldened and has continued on the path to cleanse all Muslims from the scheme of affairs.

    “Last year, Muslim Right Council (MURIC) issued a press statement to this effect that the Muslims in Taraba state are being marginalized.

     The renowned Muslim organization drew the attention of the government to redress the issue  as all exclusive tactics of governance can only breed hatred, disunity, instability and lack of peace and suspicious coexistence.

    “Recently, twelve permanent secretaries were appointed and none of them is a Muslim, despite the presence of very senior directors among the Muslim population in the state Civil Service. Laid down procedures for employment in civil service are no longer followed in Taraba state.

    “Right now, no Muslim heads any of the three arms of government in the state, the Head of Service, Secretary to the State Government, Chief of Staff are all Christians. All the state owned tertiary institutions as well as media organizations are all headed by Christians,” he said.

    Abubakar said that the Muslim Ummah was highly concerned about how the present administration has deliberately neglected the Taraba State Sharia Court of Appeal by refusing to appoint more Kadis since the demise of the  Grand Kadi last year leaving the Court with only two Kadis which does not form a quorum for sitting.

    He called on the governor on behalf of the Council to “stop running the government with favoritism and make his administration an inclusive one that recognizes the diversity of the people of the state and promote a sense of belonging and loyalty among the people in compliance with the provisions of the law and the Oath of office he took”.

    Abubakar said that after all the efforts, if the government fails to change and do the needful, the Council will have no option but to explore other options to ensure compliance

    The anger of the muslims Council is coming just as a group “Concern Taraba Citizens for good governance ” through their leader, Johnson Audu accused Governor Ishaku of destroying all the structures built by previous administrations.

    Audu in an interview with Aljazirah in Jalingo cited Taraba Motel, Dome Tent, and Jolly Nyame Stadium as well as Taraba state Secretariat as an example of edifices left destroyed by the Ishaku administration. 

    He wonder what will Governor Ishaku tell the people of the state over the rotten Cucumber farm where over N4 billion was said to have been spent.
