Once again, the Taraba Truth and Facts Newspaper has goofed in its social media publication of today in which it claimed that Governor Darius Dickson Ishaku signed the 2020 Taraba State appropriation bill on a hospital bed in Abuja.

This was contained in a Press Statement signed by the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Media and Publicity, Mr. Bala Dan Abu.

The story according to the governor’s aide is false and part of the extensive plot by the publishers of the paper and their sponsors to tarnish the image of the Governor of Taraba State.

“The truth is that as at the time of their publication, the budget had not been signed. Even as at the time of this rejoinder, the budget had not been signed.”

“Therefore, the story of budget signing in Abuja is only a figment of the imagination of the publishers of the paper.”

Mr. Bala Abu also stated categorically that Gov. Ishaku is not in hospital as contained in the publication.

“The story is, therefore, one in the chain of several stories which the paper has lined up as part of its plot to twist the truth and the facts about the Ishaku administration and bring it to ridicule.”

He urged the public to disregard Taraba Truth and Facts newspaper because it is incapable of telling the truth and stating the facts on any issue dispassionately.
