Taraba state governor, Darius Ishaku has said the reports saying he is sponsoring the impeachment of principal officers of the state House of Assembly is just a plot to ruin his relationship with the state legislature.
In a recent statement by his senior special assistant on Media and Publicity, Bala Dan Abu, on Saturday, Gov. Darius revealed that the rumors are nothing but fake news.
The report stated that Ishaku committed N200 million of public funds to seal the impeachment of the Speaker, Abel Peter Diah, however, the governor has said it is a lie.
His words, “It is yet another wicked and malicious attempt to cause confusion and conflict in the relationship between the executive and legislative arms of government in Taraba State on the one hand, and Governor Ishaku and Peter Diah, his political godson, on the other.
“Both men have had several years of fruitful personal and official relationships nurtured by mutual trust, cooperation and collaboration.
“Gov Ishaku will never sponsor and did not sponsor the so-called impeachment move, if indeed there was any such move by the Honourable members, let alone fund it with such a staggering amount of money from the public purse.
“The allegations are ridiculous, absolutely false and malicious. It is certainly for these reasons that the author of the article failed to sign it.”
