The attention of the Taraba State Government has been drawn to a certain medical bill posted online and purported to have been issued in the name of Arc. Darius Dickson Ishaku, Governor of Taraba State, for medical services allegedly procured by him abroad.
This was disclosed by the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Media and Publicity, Mr. Bala Abu.
The governor’s media aide stated categorically and with all the emphasis desirable that Gov. Ishaku did not receive medical treatment for any ailment during his present trip abroad and could, therefore, not have been issued a bill for services not procured by him.
He said that the whole idea is a fallacy, packaged by his detractors to smear his name and score cheap political points.
“It is nonsensical because it is unimaginable that Gov. Ishaku would post his own medical bill will all the details of his medical condition online for all to see.”
“The question is what point will he be making with such publication?”
“This cloning of his telephone line and use as the source of the online post is yet another proof that there is no limit to the extent that some politicians wearing the garb of opposition can go to soil the reputation of their opponents.”
Bala Abu said that the governor’s detractors have failed once again as Gov. Ishaku has nothing to do with the so-called medical bill.
He wishes to advise the general public to dismiss the publication as yet another wicked plot of his opponents to ridicule the governor.
