Taraba 2023: The Cap fits Senator Emmanuel Bwacha CON.

Taraba state is now in its weakest historical moments, with poor leadership coupled with series of territorial clashes, ethnicity, religious intolerance as well as sectionalism politics that has crippled the growth and development of the state.


 Workers are groaning in pains over unpaid salaries, growth and developments are not insight. Projects are abandoned and Taraba is gradually becoming  Nigeria's poverty capital. From all indices, our state needs a fresh but experience leader to navigate it to its promise land.


Taraba state needs a unifying leader who'll bring all Tarabans under one roof in interest of uplifting the state. A leader who will unite all sections, bring religious tolerance. Who won't work for ethnicity.

 A leader who will bring Jobs, growths and developments in the state.


And the only one with these qualities is Sen. Emmanuel Bwacha CON.

Senator Emmanuel Bwacha was born on December 15, 1963 in Donga Local Government Area of Taraba State. He is an indigene of Taraba State and the Senator representing Taraba South Senatorial District.


Senator Emmanuel Bwacha obtained a Public Administration from the University of Calabar. Prior to becoming a publicly elected officer, Emmanuel Bwacha was a public servant and served as Commissioner for Agriculture, Taraba State, between 1999 and 2003 during the Jolly Nyame administration. Bwacha was elected to the Federal House of Representatives for the Donga / Ussa / Takum Constituency, serving from May 2003 to May 2007. He was also the Chairman of the House Committee on Police Affairs.


Senator Emmanuel Bwacha successfully contested and won the election to represent Taraba South Senatorial Zone in the 2011 general elections using the Peoples Democratic Party's (PDP) ticket. In the 2015 elections, he contested again for the senate seat and was successfully re-elected still on the PDP platform. He won again in 2019 and is currently serving as the Deputy Minority Leader of the Senate. Senator Emma Bwacha is a Christian with a religious tolerance to other faiths. He's happily married and blessed with children. Senator Emmanuel Bwacha is a recipient of the National Honour of the Commander of the Order of the Niger (CON) and currently the Deputy Minority Leader in the National Assembly. Someone with such a working experience in both the executive as well as a long stay in the legislative arm, it gives Senator Emmanuel Bwacha an upper hand to manage Taraba by taking it out of the quagmires.

The only one who Taraba's Cap fits is, Senator Emmanuel Bwacha, with him better days are ahead for Taraba State
