The Taraba State Muslim Council has called on the state Governor, Darius Ishaku to as a matter of urgency appoint more Khadi’s in the state Sharia Court of Appeal to enable them to form a quorum.
The Acting Chairman of the Council, Rtd Kadi Abdul-mumin Abubakar made the call through the Secretary of the Council, Alh. Chindo Bose during a press briefing held on Friday in Jalingo.
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 promotes 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 of the government fail to change its posture and do the needful, the Council will have no option but to explore other avenues to ensure compliance
The anger of the Muslim Council is coming just as a group “Concern Taraba Citizens for Good Governance” through their leader, Johnson Audu accused Governor Darius Ishaku of destroying all the structures built by previous administrations.
Audu in an interview with Journalists in Jalingo cited Taraba Motel, Dome Tent, and Jolly Nyame Stadium as well as Taraba state Secretariat as examples of edifices left destroyed by the Ishaku’s led administration.
He wondered what Ishaku will tell the people of the state over the rotten Cucumber farm where over N4 billion was said to have been spent by his government.
