Garba UmarTaraba State Acting Governor, Alhaji Garba Umar has debunked rumors making the rounds that he is secretly sponsoring the opposition party, All Progressives Congress (APC), in the state.

Chief Press Secretary to Umar, Kefas Sule, who denied the speculation yesterday in Jalingo, the state capital, said that the acting governor remained a loyal member of his party, PDP.

Kefas further explained that Umar has no connection with any other political party apart from his own party that brought him to serve the good people of the state.

“He is a core loyalist of his party, the PDP, and will do everything possible to work for the interest of the party. PDP has done nothing wrong to him and he can’t see him working against the party that brought him to where he is today”, Kefas said.

The aide noted that Umar “understands” the constitution of his party, adding that the acting governor’s motive is uniting the party members, even as he stressed that his boss “is working towards ensuring that Taraba moves to a greater height”.
