I'm Not Running For Governor - Taraba Senator
The Senator representing Taraba South in the National Assembly, Emmanuel Bwacha, says he is not interested in the Taraba State governorship seat.
He said his reason for staying off the contest is because he wants Governor Darius Ishaku to complete two terms.
Bwacha, who is the Deputy Senate Minority Leader, spoke on Tuesday in his hometown, Mararaba, in the Donga Local Government Area of the state.
Bwacha, who is serving his second term as a senator on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, said he has already made up his mind to remain in the Senate where his experience is needed.
He said, “I am not interested in the governorship seat of the state as widely speculated. I have already made my intention of going back to the Senate known to my people. Some people felt offended when I said I wanted to go back to the Senate, but they don’t know the implication of my decision.
“I was part of the people that formed the PDP government in the state in 2015; I don’t want to be party to destroying what I put in place. I want Governor Ishaku to complete his eight years. So, I will not be party to stopping him from completing his eight years as a governor,” he said.
