The governor stated that the comments circulated in a purported video clip by Alhassan’s mouthpiece, John Mararaba, was not
only very misleading but baseless.
Governor Ishaku bears his mind in a statement made by his media aide, Sylvanus Giwa, saying that the governor was overwhelmingly excited for being elected twice by the people of Taraba and cannot be categorized as being desperate for the power that he is currently exercising.

He said: “The attention of Taraba State Government has been drawn to the baseless comments and insinuations by the defeated APC gubernatorial candidate Aisha Jummai Hassan through her Media Aide, John Ali Mararaba that Governor Darius Dickson Ishaku’s camp is desperate for power as circulated in a purported video clip which she has made a U-Turn feigning ignorance to recently.
“It should be lucidly put in record that Arc. Darius Dickson Ishaku is the executive Governor of Taraba State through the popular and overwhelming mandate given to him twice during the April 11, and April 25, 2015 general election and the rerun respectively in Taraba State and cannot be seen as a person desperate for power which he is already enjoying and exercising.”

He added that the APC candidate and her media team have showed ignorance as to who was really in-charge of the state stressing even children know who is in charge in the state.
Giwa stressed further that the governor was very committed to change the fortunes of the state for the good of the people.
