Nigerians voted overwhelmingly for the president and we are all witnesses to that fact. No single person or group can claim that glory.

The livestock potential in the state spans all known livestock in the country including cattle rearing and poultry all in commercial quantities. The tea factory is a symbol of national greatness, while the tourism potentials can attract global tourists and earn the nation good foreign exchange

Since I have spent most of my life doing good for humanity and Nigeria, I am motivated to do even more now that I am approaching my evening. I will therefore do everything to ensure that the potentials in Taraba generally and the Mambila Plateau specifically are optimally explored to make the nation great.

He said: So far Buhari has not disappointed us. I trust him (Buhari), he will not fail Nigerians. I know he will overcome the challenges the country is currently facing.
