Governor of Taraba State, Darius Ishaku has said the safety of lives and property of the citizen of the state is paramount to him as he would rather sacrifice his life than allow their safety to be jeopardized.
Ishaku said that the death of any citizen in the state grieves him. He said: “Perhaps I’m the only one who knows how deeply hurt I feel when I hear of the death of any Taraba citizen due to crisis or, as a matter of fact, for any other reasons.

“Of all the things Taraba people look up to me for, the preservation of their lives and property is number one. If I fail to protect them, then I’ve really failed. So, that’s why I said I would give my life; I would rather be sacrificed than any Taraba person, no matter his tribe, religion or status.

“We now have 17 hours of television and the radio is also enhanced because we have phased out obsolete equipment. We believe someday, we can have 24 hours TV. We have a newspaper, the Sunrise newspaper, that’s has now relapsed but we are working hard to revive it” he added.

“What we did was to take over 80 staff and subsumed them into other ministries for their salaries. When we are done digitizing, we shall go back to the paper.”
