The Acting Governor of Taraba, Alhaji Abubakar Danladi, has appointed, Mr Timothy Kataps, as the Secretary to the State Government.
This is contained in a statement signed by the Chief Press Secretary, Government House, Alhaji Hassan Mijinyawa, in Jalingo on Saturday.
Mijinyawa said that Kataps, a former Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, would be sworn in on Monday.
Danladi was reinstated by the Supreme Court on Friday, which nullified his impeachment and ordered that he should be sworn in immediately.
The impeached and reinstated former deputy governor, replaced Alhaji Garba Umar, who had been acting following the plane crash suffered by incumbent Gov Danbaba Suntai.
It would be recalled that Danladi was impeached by the House of Assembly in October, 2012 shortly before Suntai had a brain injury from a plane crash in Yola.
The house had alleged that Danladi was involved in gross misconduct and engaging in private businesses, even while he was in office.
