We need someone who can rescue Taraba – Kente

April 24, 2022

David Sabo Kente, a board member of the North East Development Commission (NEDC), has said that Taraba State needs a credible candidate who has the capability and competency to rescue the people and the state at large.

Kente stated this on Saturday while declaring his intention to run for the governorship position of the state on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), come 2023,

Piqued by the alleged failure of the rescue team of the incumbent governor of the state to mop up the tears on the faces of Tarabans, he said the state is in dire need of ”somebody who will rescue the rescuers.”

While urging those advocating for the party to embrace zoning to desist from such calls, he claimed the most urgent need of Tarabans, “is not zoning, but a rescuer.”

“Things are so bad that you just need to close your eyes and forget about zoning, and get somebody with the capability and competency to come and put Tarabans together and draw up a road map that will become success and progress of the state.”

Kente, who is also of the opinion that this is the best time for APC to take over Taraba state tasked the leadership as well as the elders of the party, to close ranks and work tenaciously round the clock to displace the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state, come 2023.

He said there was a need for the party in the state to provide a level playing ground for all the aspirants in the forthcoming primaries of the party, stressing it would go a long way in catapulting the party to victory.

Identifying the alleged inability of the present leadership of the state to treat people equally as a major cause of the incessant upheavals, he said it was a matter of urgency to address the situation.

He said, ”wherever you see conflict erupting here and there, there are elements of unfairness, hence the need for leaders to be fair to everybody”.

Kente also called on the leadership of the party to jealously protect the party from being hijacked by overzealous members who he said recently decamped from the PDP to the APC.
