In Economic Meltdown, Victor Bala Kona Not Sacrificing N4bn For PDP Guber Ticket- Campaign Office




 The Victor Bala Kona Campaign Organisation has said its principal could not have sacrificed the sum of 4bn to secure a ticket for governorship seat in the state especially in this era of economic meltdown.

 Responding to a news story published by Taraba Truth and Fact, Director Media and Communications Victor Bala Kona Campaign Organization, Jovita Shafe said it is unfortunate for any right-thinking person to assume that a sensitive position such as the office of the Governor should be sold for 4bn an amount that is more than the state monthly subvention, as such the authority mentioned in the claim must be circumspect in dealing with figures that relate with people in high authority.

 

Shafe also noted that majority of the adherents of the Peoples Democratic Party in the state have already declared their support for the aspiration of Chief Victor Bala Kona for 2023 governorship elections. Read full statement on page ..

 

 
 RE: - VICTOR BALA KONA DANGLES 4BN FOR PDP GUBER TICKET

 It has become increasingly worrisome that a section of some self-acclaimed political pundits have adopted a strategy to undermine the political pedigree of Chief Victor Bala Kona as Gubernatorial aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party PDP in Taraba state. This situation is occasioned by a high level of misdemeanour expressed in a publication of Taraba Truth and Facts dated Wednesday 30th March, 2022.

 In view of the foregoing, the Victor Bala Kona Campaign Organisation wishes to express its concern over the publication and to draw the attention of the general public to disregard the publication which is mischievous, frivolous, unacceptable and of no consequence.

 The Campaign Organisation would want to inform the general public that a retrospective look at the life and times of Victor Bala Kona places him enviously as an astute businessman, seasoned grassroot politician and a man with character, competence and confidence in carrying out his legitimate duties.

 The public should also know that at no time has Victor Bala Kona been found wanting either as a civil servant which he was or as a politician that he is today.

Therefore, Chief Victor Bala Kona could not have sacrificed the sum of 4bn to secure a ticket for governorship seat in the state especially in this era of economic meltdown. This claim is baseless and should be disregarded in its totality.

 More so, Chief Victor Bala Kona did not and has not purchased Senatorial nomination form for His Excellency Governor Darius Dickson Ishaku. The Governor by virtue of his status will not stoop low under whatever guise or circumstances to allow himself to be taken for granted by this unfounded claim.

 It is unfortunate for any right-thinking person to assume that a sensitive position such as the office of the Governor should be sold for 4bn an amount that is more than the state monthly subvention, as such the authority mentioned in the claim must be circumspect in dealing with figures that relate with people in high authority.

 Chief Victor Bala Kona has worked assiduously for the development and good of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and by extension Taraba state as a whole. He has demonstrated commitment, dutifulness and has given success a pragmatic approach. Through this sterling qualities he has enthroned the extant Governor (DDI) in 2015 and 2019 general elections. He has also injected sanity, stability and confidence in the operations of the Peoples Democratic Party in Taraba State, while He was State Chairman of the Party and after.

 The claim over his non acceptability is ill motivated, politically miscalculated, and a malicious misgiving by some political desperados. Chief Victor Bala Kona is the most acceptable aspirant not only in the Northern Zone, but the entire Geo-Political Zones of Taraba State. Therefore, majority of the adherents of the Peoples Democratic Party in the state have already declared their support for the aspiration of Chief Victor Bala Kona for 2023 governorship elections.

 It is surprising that some disgruntled elements have derailed from the path of honour to allege that Chief Victor Bala Kona has a case filed with the EFCC over uncompleted contracts while he was a Board Member of TETFUND. Permit me to enlighten you with the fact that Chief Victor Bala Kona has never been a contractor with TETFUND and has not at any time executed any contract within the specified area of claim mentioned in the Write-up. In this regard, Chief Victor Bala Kona has no case with EFCC and no file has been opened for him with the EFCC.

 The assembly of collaborators in this ungodly, desperate and undemocratic publication must be ashamed of all the claims they raised. The names used in the publication are not only ghostly but are tailored towards misinforming, misleading, fictitious, ambiguous, frivolous and contaminated in all ramifications.

 The Victor Bala Kona Campaign Organisation is aware of the names of person behind the publication and as such we wish to use the same medium to appeal to their conscience to retrace their steps as any further publications from the group will not only be seen and perceived as counterproductive to the development of the state but an attempt to engender rancour and pandemonium within the body of the Peoples Democratic Party in Taraba State.
 We must note that Chief Victor Bala Kona has a Clement disposition towards the good people of PDP and Taraba State as a whole. He cannot therefore, destroy a project he cherishes and nurtured to maturity. 

 Already, Democracy is being put to test and a level playing turf has been provided for every person to test their popularity. The attempt by the publication is of tremendous significance to the positive campaign approach adopted by the Victor Bala Kona campaign organisation.

 We are therefore, ready to partner with people of goodwill, lovers of democracy and members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in the march towards a rancour free primaries and an election devoid of any form of Commotion.
