A frontline 2023 Governorship aspirant in Taraba state, Senator Anthony Manzo has condemned the renewed violent attacks and induced explosions in parts of the state that have claimed scores of lives and properties.
Bomb explosions were recorded in Ardo kola local government and Nukai areas in Jalingo, Taraba state on Tuesday and Friday respectively.
Senator (Dr) Anthony George Manzo, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, (APC) in a statement made available to Page3news.com.ng tasked security operatives to double their efforts in order to forestall a repeat occurrence.
He also enjoined the citizens to co-operate with security operatives by providing credible information to enable them fish out undesirable elements in their midst pointing out that “if citizens cooperate with the security agents, we can fish out the bad eggs living amongst us.
“These criminals live amongst us. The earlier we realise that we are all endangered if we continue to harbour them in our midst and resolve to flush them out, the better and safer for all of us”.
The Governorship hopeful however promised that if given the mandate to lead the state in 2023, he will embark on aggressive job creation that will take the unemployed youths out of the streets.
His economic blue print, he added includes but not limited to mechanised farming (Agriculture) and industrialization.
According to Manzo, ”With our untapped mineral resources and massive arable lands, we can achieve food sufficiency through Agriculture and we can make Taraba state the economic hub of North East and five top economically viable states in Nigeria”.
All these efforts, he said are targeted towards economic prosperity for all and possibly eliminate crimes and all kind of vices. He promised a peaceful and United Taraba state that will be a pride for all citizens.
