A governorship aspirant on the platform of the All progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Alhaji Adamu Ibrahim, on Saturday pledged to prioritize agriculture if elected.
Ibrahim, a retired permanent secretary in the state disclosed this while formally declaring his intention to contest for Taraba governorship seat.
The aspirant noted that agriculture had the potential to make Taraba self reliant given the state’s climatic condition which allowed for cultivation of all kinds of crops.
“If elected, I will pay more attention to agriculture which has the potential to quickly turn around the economic fortune of the state.
“Taraba is blessed with such a unique climatic condition that is conducive for cultivation all kinds of crops and rearing of animals, thereby making agriculture the greatest employer of labour if given the needed attention.
“I will also tackle corruption and insecurity head on, so as to give room for genuine development for the good of the people.
Ibrahim urged the people of the state to trust APGA as an alternative party that would provide social and economic development in the state.
Mr Danjuma Shidi, a member representing Wukari/Ibi federal constituency on the platform of APGA expressed delight over the growth of the party in the state.
Shidi explained that the achievements he recorded in Wukari/Ibi constituency under APGA platform should be a reference point for the people of the state to support the party at all levels for a better Taraba.
Reacting to the development, Mr Ishaya Bako the APGA Chairman in the state assured all aspirants of a level playing ground to achieve their various political aspirations.
