The Taraba Voters Watch (TVW) yesterday condemned public attack on the acting governor of Taraba state, Alhaji Sani Abubakar Danladi and the PDP flag bearer, Arc. Darius Dickson Ishaku during a campaign in Gembu.
In a statement jointly signed by the group coordinators, Ismaila Inusa and James Bauka respectively, TVW said commend the PDP flag bearer, Arc. Darius Dickson Ishaku for exhibiting high level maturity in his campaigns by sticking to the issues rather than deviating into pettiness and attacks on personalities.
?This is commendable in a time we are seeing worse people are embarking on campaigns. The other day in Gembu, some supporters of another party tried so hard to heckle the PDP candidate and the Acting Governor. Apart from hurling stones as the convoy sped pass, the rival party supporters were also chanting inanities and insults. This type of attitude should be condemned, the statement said.
?Retaliation by PDP supporters would have been bloody. Rather, Darius waved back at the mob that even came close to his vehicles to look for trouble. We are convinced that Ishaku is running for governor to find a way of creating employment for these drugged youths.?
?Clearly, these youngsters are only been deluded and pushed by the destitution of their circumstances. If they are gainfully employed, they would be busy. They won?t become pawns in anyone?s hand. So that is why Ishaku said he is determine to work and end unemployment,? the statement added.
The group said soon, the ?detractors? who carry out such a heinous act would realize that Ishaku is their friends and not their worst nightmare.
?With Darius, we are starting to see a fresh kind of campaign in Taraba. He has reintroduced decency in keeping with the way Governor Danbaba Suntai used to campaign which is politics without bitterness. What Darius has done so far is to tell the Taraba electorate what he would do if they agree to vote for him.
