A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Taraba State, Alhaji Iliyasu Kirim has hailed the founding fathers of the Nature Gift to the Nation, State for their sacrifices.

In a statement to mark the 31st anniversary of the State’s creation, he recalled the selfless commitment of the past Military and Civilian administrations for their sacrifices and hard work that has left indelible mark in the sands of time among others.

Iliyasu Kirim, who is the appointed Deputy Governor candidate of the APC, for Taraba state, said such selfless efforts should be replicated by the people of the State, stressing that it would lead to a steady progress.

“I called on Tarabans to bring back these qualities to play now as we most need them. Qualities that contain a deep desire to bring positive change to the people. A desire to be independent. A desire to help her people. And we must bring back these qualities. We must actually see to this change,” Alhaji Iliyasu Kirim said.

Alhaji Iliyasu Kirim further stated that, “the period we are in has been politically charged and filled with a legion of activities, mainly electioneering, with many pitching tents, many changing tents, a few others have been left confused, and the remaining few seemingly indecisive.

He therefore said there has been a yearning desire that lurked in the hearts of many Nigerians, it has transcended every known human barricade; the desire for a better Nigeria, a better state, a better local government area council, better institutions, and all down the lines.

“We have currently, a national wave blowing vigorously and being felt by all, even the indecisive, and this breeze has touched our dear State, Taraba.

“This wind has refused to be stopped or to give way to the old order. This wind is bent on shaking things down to their roots, the old system is giving way to a new way. ‘we must put away the evil thing’, to get the new Taraba of our dream,” Kirim said.
