CSNAC warns Against Building Culture of Impunity in Taraba State

-

- Advertisment -

Civil Society Network Against Corruption (CSNAC) convened a media parley tagged “Building On Culture of Impunity” where certain prayers were made in relation with events in Taraba state that has again taken a new turn with the members of the House of Assembly shunning the presentation of the 2014 budget by the acting state Governor, Alhaji Garba Umar.

Some members said they stayed away because the courts had halted the House and the Acting Governor from carrying out certain functions pending the final ruling. Josiah Sabo Kente, Speaker of the House, said “it is not mandatory for everybody to be in the sitting”.

Issues discussed at the meeting include ailing Governor Suntai’s inability to deliver the standard of leadership he promised upon his assumption of office. CSNAC also remarked on the silence shrouding the state of health of the Governor’s aides who were involved in the plane crash with him.

CSNAC asked that the Governor should show the people that he is able to resume office instead of the synchronised media reports circling the airwaves. CSNAC also encouraged the Newspapers Proprietors Association of Nigeria to interview the Governor and publish such interviews. They concluded by asking Governor Suntai to put paid to speculations by addressing the House of Assembly.
