Abuja - Pressure group, the Coalition of Youth Movement, accused some elders in the state for allegedly shying away from their responsibilities of helping end the problems in the Taraba State.
The organization expressed disappointment with "sitting major stakeholders" such as Rtd General Theophilus Danjuma, Ambassador Idris Waziri and Dr Mohammed Shata as well as former governor Reverend Jolly Nyame saying they were not working to put an end to the present political crisis in the state, which the youth said was at the verge of giving birth to parallel government.
“The coalition wishes to express its disappointment in the manner in which some critical stakeholders from Taraba State are sitting on the fence. Our elders cannot shy away from their responsibilities.
"We urge them to come out and take a clear stand,” President of the coalition, Abba Waziri Abubakar, told journalists on Wednesday in Jalingo.
A charged Abubakar said his organization observed that a “cabal desperately fashioning out their political dreams ahead of 2015 at the expense of the masses” were behind the ongoing political problems in the state.
“The coalition observed that the ongoing political logjam is caused by 2015 general election and perceived ambition of some political actors which is throwing our state into puzzlement and further isolating our people while 2015 is still far.”
He urged stakeholders to heed the recommendations of a team led by Senator Hope Uzodinma.
The mediation team recommended Acting Governor, Garba Umar, remain in that position but must seek for clearance from recuperating Governor Dunbaba Suntai before embarking on any major decision.
