Taraba State Governor, Darius Ishaku has denied reports that he is desperate to remain in power.

The allegation was reportedly made by the All Progressive Congress (APC) governorship candidate in the state, Aisha Alhassan.

This was contained in a statement released Ishaku’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Sylvanus Giwa.

It reads:

“The attention of Taraba State Government has been drawn to the baseless comments and insinuations by the defeated APC gubernatorial candidate Aisha Jummai Hassan through her Media Aide, John Ali Mararaba that Governor Darius Dickson Ishaku’s camp is desperate for power as circulated in a purported video clip which she has made a U-Turn feigning ignorance to recently.

“It should be lucidly put in record that Arc. Darius Dickson Ishaku is the executive Governor of Taraba State through the popular and overwhelming mandate given to him twice during the April 11, and April 25, 2015 general election and the rerun respectively in Taraba State and cannot be seen as a person desperate for power which he is already enjoying and exercising”.

Ishaku recently scored a victory against Alhassan at the Court of Appeal after his victory during the elections was upheld.
