Former Deputy Minority Leader of the Senate, Senator Emmanuel Bwacha has given further details to KWARARAFA REPORTERS on how his relationship with Governor Darius Dickson Ishaku of Taraba state collapsed. Bwacha, representing Taraba South Senatorial Zone, recently defected to the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC), from the PDP stating irreconcilable differences with Governor Darius as one his many reasons.
Shedding more light on why he left the PDP, the three term senator exclusively told KR that he was also impressed with the work President Muhammadu Buhari has been doing in his zone. These he said included the work ongoing work on River Ibi, the Kashimbilla dam and the Donga/Marraraba road. He said President Buhari had warmed his way into his heart with this projects that will accelerate developments in the future at the zone and the region.
He said, “if you take the bridge across that River Ibi, you are looking at a project with far reaching consequences, that will link the entire North East with the rest of the country. The economic value of this bridge is massive. And it took this Government of the APC to embark on the project.”
Differences with Darius
The Senator said his crisis with Governor Darius can not be traced to anything in particular to the best of his knowledge. In the tell-it-all interview with KR, he said, ” I did my best to be at peace with Governor Darius. I remembered when he was sick I even tried to reach him to pray for him to no avail. He declined my calls. I sent him messages which he never replied. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. He isolated me. I heard he wanted me to drop my ambition which I’m yet to declare before we can understand each other. How do you drop something you have not even expressed?”
