Buhari Is Plotting To Stop My Re-Election Bid In 2019 - Ishaku

Taraba State Governor, Darius Ishaku

Taraba State governor, Darius Ishaku has alleged that President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration is planning to dissuade seven governors, including him from seeking re-election in 2019.

This he said when former Vice President Atiku Abubakar visited him in Jalingo, the state capital, yesterday.

He said that he has told all those seeking to stop him from running a second term that God will have his way.

“I have been told on good authority that seven of us (governors) have been enlisted to be stopped from coming back in 2019,” he said.

“That all arsenals, whether airplanes, guns and whatever means shall be used to wrestle power from us by hook or crook.

“I told them they are not God. It was God’s willing that I am in the saddle as governor today.

“Everyone desires that Nigeria should be one. We must continue to keep the country united.”

Commenting on the killings in the state, Ishaku said: “I am the governor and chief security officer of my state, but in reality, I am helpless in terms of security. I am handicapped, I am a toothless bulldog.”

He dismissed the anti-graft crusade of the current administration, saying “corruption is not all about money.”

“Corruption is not all about funds. If someone steals N100 million and you jail him for 100 days and another person kills 100 innocent people with AK47 and you allow him to go free, it is the worst form of corruption.”
