The Taraba State APC Stakeholders condemned bitterly the senseless killing, kidnapping and destruction of public properties going on in the state as a result of manageable communal clashes among the good citizens of Taraba State who had a long term standing history of brotherhood and good neighborliness and indicted the Taraba State Government of failing woefully to meet up with its constitutional responsibilities of protecting the lives and properties of all its citizens without fear and favour irrespective of our religious, ethnics and regions.

The Stakeholders stressed that Taraba State belongs to all of us, we cannot remain passive and watch our people killing and displacing one another on a daily basis. We in the APC will not allow Tarabans to become refugees in their own state. Taraba must be secure and remain safe.
