Acting president, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo is expected to commission the multi billion naira Taraba Agro Green House project and the dualised Jalingo –Kona road on August 10.
This is contained in a press statement signed by the chief press to the governor of Taraba State, Mr. Hassan Mijinyawa, and made available to journalists in Jalingo. According to the statement, the visit of the acting president will go a long way in assuring the people of the state of how dear the federal government holds Taraba.
It added that the visit would also help in showcasing some of the projects initiated and completed by Governor Darius Ishaku’s administration despite the lean resources accrued to the state. “The projects to be commissioned are in fulfillment of governor Ishaku’s administration drive to create jobs, boost revenue and expand the state’s road network for easy commuting of persons and farm produce for accelerated development. “Governor Ishaku enjoined Tarabans from all walks of life to come out in mass during the visit to give the August visitor a rousing welcome to the state,” part of the statement read.
Meanwhile, the Taraba State Police command has said it had concluded all security arrangements and working with other agencies to ensure a hitch free visit of the acting president.
The command’s spokesman, ASP David Misal, who gave the assurance yesterday in Jalingo, said the command had beefed up security ahead of the visit.
