Ex-labour Leader urges EFCC to probe Taraba Assembly

A veteran labor leader and politician, Faruk Mohammed Kunini, has urged the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to probe the Taraba State House of Assembly.

Kunini made the call on Tuesday in Jalingo, the state capital. He expressed disappointment that the members have derailed their constitutional responsibilities by dancing to the dictates of the governor.

The members, according to him, are only concerned with approving loans for the governor and getting their percentages.

Kunin, who went ahead to allege that “many unwholesome activities are going on in government agencies without recourse to the repercussion lamented that the assembly has looked the other way.

The pioneer chairman of the Nigeria Union of Local Government Employees (NULGE) described the assembly as washed out and having no effect on the people of the state.

Stressing that “the members have become rubber stamps of the governor”, he affirmed that “it is the desire of the governor they carry out, and not the wishes and aspirations of the people.”
