Darius Ishaku citing that Taraba is the only state we have and in the spirit of patriotism we shall support our leader in the development of the state in all faces of life.
The Governor’s investment in the youth constituency across the state in empowering, employing and including the youth in act of governance has endear him in the heart of the youth and have his name written with gold ink in the council good book for such an rare magnanimous nature.
Standing on this inaugural occasion are well mannered and responsible youth coming from different backgrounds across the state. We are all the product of this government enjoying and benefiting it goodwill and nobody can disconnect us from this government.
Whoever is bringing the NYCN Taraba chapter in altar of lies to ridicule and kill the dream of millions of Taraba youth for their personal interest are enemies of the State and youth growth. Because these are thesame people who benefited the goodness of NYCN and are now turning against the council because of their personal interest. They used the bridge to cross and turn to destroy it so that others should not cross through thesame bridge.
As law abiding youth and citizen, we remain resilient and supportive that NYCN will not end in Taraba but continue to flourish under our youth friendly Governor DDI. We shall continue to work in spirit of progress as young people to influence good things that will bring progress to the teaming youth of Taraba.
