The Executive Governor of Taraba State, Governor Darius Dickson Ishaku has assured the people of Ussa Local Government Area that he would not go back on his campaign promises to them in view of the Area’s untainted records in the maintenance of peace.
Governor Ishaku gave this assurance yesterday during the special New Year’s service at the Reformed Christian Church of Nigeria, RCCN, Central Lissam.
He reiterated his commitment to fulfilling the campaign promises he made for the construction of the Lissam – Bissaula road and other road networks within the Southern Senatorial Zone.
While explaining the synergy between the Federal and State Government in roads maintenance, he disclosed that when a State Government completes a Federal road, the Federal Government is under obligation to to refund the money spent.
But lamented that for years, the Federal Government has failed to comply and this has been a major setback in the maintenance of roads in the country today.
According to him, the road in question is a Federal Government road and the aforementioned reason has delayed the commencement of work on it but he however promised to tackle the problem headlong this year.
