Taraba Truth and Facts reports



A Chieftain of the All Progressive Congress APC in Ussa Local Government, Dr S.S. Timothy has said Governor Darius Ishaku abandoned  the Kuteb nation in the last four years, stressing that they would vote for the APC on Saturday.

Timothy said the Kuteb Nation has a a lot to benefit if the APC governorship candidate Sani Contact  is elected on Saturday, describing Contact has a true friend of the Kuteb Nation.

"Contact is a friend and part of the Kuteb Nation, Contact as relations and friends who are Kutebs.

‎He urged the Kutebs not to be sawed away by religious sentiment saying the governor never consider the Kutebs for anything good in the last four years.

"What has DDI done fot the Kuteb either in TAKUM or Ussa? There's no good reason  you can tell the Kuteb people to vote DDI if not religion and politics or good governance is not  about religion, it's achievements.

"Not even one block of primary school has DDI renovated in Ussa talk less of bore holes for common water for the Kutebs.
"The hospital build by Danbaba is in ruins,  the Lissam road DDI promised in 2015 is now a dead trap. If Lissam road is Federal Road what of TAKUM -Kpambo - Fikyu road?

"He is able to go to other Kingdom to install Chiefs, what of Ukwe TAKUM?  We lost our brother Hon Hosea what has he to tell our people. TAKUM today has one of the worst kidnapping gangs in Nigeria yet DDI is from TAKUM. The road to his house in TAKUM he cannot fix it.
"Please check transfer and appointment records in Jalingo and see if any Kuteb man is favored. Any Kuteb man asking fellow Kutebs to vote DDI is only but looking at his stomach and personal interest. These suffering must stop now," Dr Timothy said.

He said the Kutebs deserves better treatment like other communities with strong political influence.

"There are some political communities in Taraba who are respected for there political strength to which Kuteb was one. They are, the mambilas, the mumuye, the karims and the kutebs that brought late Barde to power in Gongola, Nnyame and Danbaba to power in Taraba.
All these communities are teaming up again to vote for APC and Sani Contact. Now the Fulanis and other larger communities in state has also join these group in full force. As a nation, Kuteb can't go otherwise with APC in the central government."
