Taraba State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has urged the state House of Assembly to invoke Section 190 Sub-section 2 of the 1999 Constitution (as amended) and transmit power to the Deputy Governor, Haruna Manu.
This followed the absence of Governor Darius Dickson Ishaku from the state for the past 55 days.
The Guardian learnt that since leaving the state on December 22, 2019, the governor has not returned, a situation that has being raising dusts in the state.
Disturbed by the development, state Chairman of APC, Ibrahim Tukur El-Sudi and the governorship candidate of the party in the last election, Professor Mohammed Sani Yahaya, asked members of the state House of Assembly to do the needful or be compelled to sue Governor Ishaku.
El-Sudi and Yahaya, who made the call while distributing relief materials to Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in the state, wondered why the governor decided to leave for the past 55 days without adequate information.
