A former Special Adviser to Governor Darius Dickson Ishaku of Taraba State, Saleh Ahmadu Pintim, has broken his silence on why he resigned his appointment.
Pintim who tendered his resignation through the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Anthony Jellason on the 31st of January, copies of which were made available to newsmen in Jalingo, said his decision became necessary following the manner in which the government was being handled.
The former SA who claimed to have been given an appointment without any responsiblity said his option was to leave the office
Pintim in the statement disclosed how he has been receiving salaries without working, claiming it was against his faith.
Alleging that the administration “has no focus”, Pintim said he had no alternative but to leave.
Describing Ishaku’s government as “a government that is moving in circles without any progress” the former SA claimed it would not be ideal for him to remain in such circles.
He said, ”the past two years or so have been most challenging in my life and faith.
“I was paid salaries without any responsibility which is against my faith particularly in a government and party that had lost focus”.
Comparing the incumbent administration under the leadership of governor Ishaku to the “children of Israel in the wilderness”, he said ”Ishaku’s government is moving in a circle without any focus”.
But debunking the allegation of the Peoples Democratic Party in the state not being focused, the party’s Public Relations officer, Andeta’rang Irammae, said all the allegations presently being levelled against the party by Pintim are all false.
He urged the public especially the teeming members of the party to discard the allegations, saying they hold no water.
