Ishaku Accuses Buhari Of Plotting To Stop 7 Governors From Seeking Re-election
Governor Darius Ishaku of Taraba State has accused the President Muhammadu-led Federal Government of plotting to stop him and six other governors from seeking re-election in 2019.
The governor made this known on Thursday when he received former Vice President Atiku Abubakar.
The governor was, however, silent on the names of the six other governors.
Ishaku said he has told those seeking to remove him that only the wish of God would be done.
He urged Atiku to do something about “election rigging” in the country.
Ishaku said: “I have been told on good authority that seven of us (governors) have been enlisted to be stopped from coming back in 2019.
“That all arsenals, whether airplanes, guns and whatever means shall be used to wrestle power from us by hook or crook.
“I told them they are not God.
“It was God’s willing that I am in the saddle as governor today.
“Everyone desires that Nigeria should be one. We must continue to keep the country united.”
The governor also urged the National Assembly to expedite action on the establishment of state police.
