Stakeholders of the All Progressives Congress Taraba South have written an open letter to the President, Bola Tinubu, asking him to consider the zone for ministerial and other top federal appointments.
In the letter, signed by the Chairman Taraba APC Youth Forum, Jamiu Bawa, on Tuesday, the stakeholders said Southern Taraba deserved such consideration as it had worked assiduously for APC’s victory in the state.
The statement read, ”It is in the record that Southern Taraba APC produced the most elected office holders.
”Southern Taraba has become the APC zone, where a senator was produced and all the two House of Representatives members.
”The only APC senator in Taraba was produced from the southern zone and it is imperative to state here that, in the recently concluded presidential elections, the southern zone of Taraba performed optimally for the party with 81, 568 in the zone and 135, 165 votes garnered in the state for the presidential elections.”
The group, which congratulated Tinubu over his victory at the polls, prayed to God to grant him wisdom to stir the affairs of the country and also expressed optimism that the Almighty would endow him with all the necessary tools and good health to lead Nigeria into greatness.
”Once again, we congratulate you on your inauguration and the birthing of the renewed hope administration.
”This letter could not have been written at a better time than now because, as congratulatory messages are pouring in, we are sure, you are already considering names with a view to forming a cabinet as soon the 10th assembly is inaugurated.
”As a committed progressive cum determined democrat and one who possesses the spirit of rewarding hard work, this letter cannot wait for another time,” the letter read.
