Be Law Abiding Citizenz - Taraba Speaker Tells Constituents


Speaker of Taraba State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Joseph Albasu Kunini, PhD has admonished his constituents in Lau local government area of the State to be law abiding citizens no matter a high level of provocation.

According to the Speaker, as the number three citizen in Taraba State, he would not stand aloof to allow the constituents to take the laws into their hands in the name of revenge or political rivalry.

The Speaker made the assertions when the Councilor representing Mayo Lope Ward, Lau local government, Hon. John Akawu, who escaped death by the whiskers after an assassination attempt, paid him a thank-you visit in his residence in Jalingo on Wednesday, 13th January, 2021.

The Councilor who was accompanied by the District Head of Mayo Lope, Mr. Yakubu Hamman, and other well-wishers, was shot by unknown gunmen near his residence at Mayo Lope, on 27th December, 2020.

He was rushed to the Federal Medical Centre in Jalingo where he underwent surgery, while the Speaker was on ground to ensure  that all went well.

Thus, when Hon Akawu visited the Speaker to express his gratitude to him, the latter told the former he ought to thank God first before coming to him with such large well-wishers.

He said, "I am surprised that in less than one month Hon Akawu has recuperated from the gunshots wounds and is alive.

"When I learned about the attack, I quickly rushed to the hospital where I saw him alive in the theatre.

"If we always retaliate because of religious, political or tribal differences, we will all be consumed; therefore I am always conscious of the fact that we should allow God to avenge for us, since everything in this world is transient, including the seat I now occupy in the State House of Assembly.

"For whatever reason you were attacked by your assailants, God knows why and only Him will avenge for you. Thank Him for sparing your life, while your assailants remain guilty till death.

"For those whose stock-in-trade is character assassination, I want to assure you that whatever God destined me to be, I will surely be, no matter the gang up and shenanigans to stop.

"Therefore, I advise you to fix a date for a thanksgiving to God in your Church so that we will all attend in solidarity with you. But I advise you to forgive your assailants and let God avenge for you."

Several others who spoke during the visit described the Speaker as a detribalised and generous person, just as they pledged their unalloyed loyalty and unflinching support to him.
