Mr. Darius Ishaku, the Taraba state governor risks legal action staying in Abuja, Nigerian capital city and refusing to return to his state and govern.
The state All Progressive Congress (APC), in a press conference on Thursday at Jalingo the state capital, says it has concluded an arrangement to drag Ishaku to court for refusing to live in the state while staying at Abuja.
The APC said, they will compel the state assembly to force the governor to come back to that state, when the house fails, they will approach the court to compel Ishaku back to the state.
Mr. Ibrahim El-Sudi, the APC state chairman and the governorship candidate in the 2019 elections, Mr. Muhammad Yahaya, while addressing the press, said the governor has been staying in Abuja for over 54 days without transmitting power to his deputy, Mr. Haruna Manu.
“The governor has failed to do the needful and he has been out of the state for 54 days now. The House has also failed to invoke the necessary constitutional provisions. We, therefore, call on the house to urgently do this in the interest of the state” El-Sudi said.
