The government of Taraba State has established a committee with the mission of providing palliative care to the state’s residents.
On Wednesday, state governor Agbu Kefas inaugurated a commission to ease the financial burdens caused by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s decision to end the country’s petroleum subsidy programme.
Governor Kefas, who presided over the ceremony in the Executive Chamber of the Government House in Jalingo, the state capital, encouraged members of the committee to avoid doing anything that could delay getting the palliatives to the people who need them.
He felt it was necessary for his administration to establish the committee to mitigate the negative impacts of the loss of fuel subsidy in accordance with the federal government’s direction to provide relief to the people.
He instructed the group to help everyone, regardless of their beliefs or where they were on the political spectrum.
Saleh Saad, the committee’s head, responded by promising an impartial and open process for carrying out its duties.
