Gov Kefas Building A New Taraba- Information Commissioner

As the new administration strives towards fulfill its promises to the people of the state, Governor Kefas has approached banks for a 200 billion loan facility to be used in financing educational projects, agriculture, quality healthcare delivery, energy, transportation, and other critical infrastructure.

The Taraba state Commissioner for information and re-orientation, Mrs. Zainabu Usman Jalingo,  said that Governor Agbu has no interest in looting the state treasury.


Usman said that the governor was focused on building a new Taraba of greatness that all Nigerians would prefer to visit as a home, and the citizens lives would be transformed.


"Governor Agbu Kefas is not interested in looting Taraba state treasury. He is focused to ensure that the dream to build a new Taraba of greatness and improve the lives of the citizens is actualized. The N206 Billion loan request is not to enrich himself and family. The borrowings are substantially dedicated for capital projects and human developments in line with the fiscal responsibility act.



"The desire of the governor is to ensure that every citizen feel the real impact of good governance. His target is to reposition governance where government would be executing transformational projects on a regular basis.


"The developmental steps taken so far by the governor in Education and Agriculture, is a clear indication that he is out to ensure that Taraba is ranked among top best Nigerian states in all aspects of life", the Commissioner explained.
