Former Special Adviser to the immediate past governor of Taraba State on New Media, Osborn Adi, has blasted the incumbent governor of the state, Dr Agbu Kefa, for alleged poor performance after one year in office.

Speaking via his Facebook handle over the weekend, Adi who carpeted Kefas for allegedly failing to fulfill his campaign promises, alleged that the state was moving at a snail speed under him.

“Critics are particularly concerned about the pervasive rebranding of projects, including those initiated by previous administrations, with his own name. The humble Kefas we knew and entrusted our votes with has seemingly deviated from that path.

“His Excellency came into government a year ago with a message of restoring lost hope in Taraba within that rhythm of service in humility.

“But, one year on, most of what we see is so much personification of governance,”Adi said.

Adi who alleged that Kefas has been going about naming projects initiated by past governors after himself, said the abattoir in Jalingo that was started by the Danbaba administration, white the Jalingo New Market, a legacy of ex-governor Jolly Nyame, has renamed Kefas Palliative Market.

He also argued the Trailer Park was a brain child of the Darius Ishaku government.

Others projects who he also identified to have been initiated by past governors, which he said Kefas is now laying claim to, are the Trade Fair Complex and the Tractor Hiring Unit, which he has been renamed after Kefas.

“With all sense of responsibility, these are not good omens for the kind of progressive and robust leadership His Excellency had promised us.”

He stressed that personalizing leadership leads to absolute power and absolute power leads to corruption.

But in a swift reaction, the Special Adviser to the governor on Media and Digital Communication, Emmanuel Bello, argued that Kefas completed the projects.

“What’s the use of the history of a project if it is not completed to serve its full potential? Methinks people will prefer to have what works than worry about who it is named after.”
