The Chairman of the Taraba State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Alhaji Hassan Ardo has described the election of Hon. Mark Useni as the Speaker of the State House of Assembly as not only an aberration of democracy, but an insult to the electorates of the state.
Ardo who raised the issue at media briefing in Jalingo said that the action of the lawmakers and that of the Executive tele-guided by Governor Darius Ishaku was a clear indication that Taraba has been mortgaged by a cartel that had little or no knowledge of governing a state.
He explained that the emergence of Useni who is from the same ward, the same constituency, the same local government and the same tribe with the governor portrays the decadence of democracy in Taraba State.
According to Ardo the APC stakeholders had to summon an emergency meeting in Jalingo on the election of the Speaker and after serious deliberations condemned the action in its totality.
