Taraba - Former Taraba State commissioners that served under governor, Dunbaba Suntai, urged President Goodluck Jonathan to intervene to end the tensions in the state.
The ex-office holders believe the crises would have been contained if Jonathan had not “refused” to mediate.
Citing the numerous “Ill acts” of the Acting Governor, Alhaji Umar towards Governor Suntai, they opined that the “ill actions” the acting governor was allegedly perpetrating, the state was capable of truncating the peace in the state.
In a press statement made available to journalists in the state, the former commissioners observed felt sad that the Acting Governor has continue to feed the public with negative information concerning the present health of the governor.
“With the way Garba Umar is carrying on with his evil agenda, one is bound to believe that he has not been able to achieve his ultimate objective, possibly because he does not have the backing of Mr President,” the former commissioners stated.
They added, “Mr President must not stop at being silent on this matter.
He is the Chief Custodian of the Nigerian Constitution, and it therefore behooves on him to call Garba Umar to order. Mr. President should know that Garba Umar's antics are clear invitation to chaos and anarchy. He must be told to tell his sponsors to hands off Taraba State.”
Umar is governor on an acting capacity but can make key decisions after consulting Suntai, whose plans to reclaim his position were resisted after he returned from the United States.
He was undergoing treatment following a plane crash.
