Taraba acting gov appoints SSG


The Acting Governor of Taraba, Abubakar Danladi, has appointed, Timothy Kataps, as the Secretary to the State Government.

A statement signed by the Chief Press Secretary, Government House, Hassan Mijinyawa, in Jalingo on Saturday, said that Kataps, a former Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, would be sworn in on Monday.

Danladi was reinstated by the Supreme court on Friday, which nullified his impeachment and ordered that he should be sworn in immediately.

The impeached and reinstated former deputy governor, replaced Garba Umar, who had been acting following the plane crash suffered by incumbent Gov Danbaba Suntai.

Danladi was impeached by the House of Assembly in October, 2012 shortly before Suntai had a brain injury from a plane crash in Yola.

The house had alleged that Danladi was involved in gross misconduct and abuse of office.
