Alhaji Garba Umar spoke about of peace in the state when he met with Emirs, religious and community leaders at a stakeholders’ parley in state capital city of Jalingo on September 24, 2013, Tuesday.
Chairmen of the 16 Local Government Areas of the state and traditional rulers drawn from all parts of the state were also present at the peace meeting, presided over by the Acting Governor.
Alhaji Garba Umar made it clear to the gathering that he was loyal and committed to the injured Governor Dambaba Suntai and that it was not true that he was trying to usurp his office.
“I make bold to say that I am 100 percent loyal to Governor Suntai, who is a friend and a brother to me,” the Acting Governor Stated.
It would be recalled that Taraba crisis escalated after ailing Governor Suntai has been brought back to Nigeria after being out for 10 months for treatment. He returned home on August 25, 2013, Sunday, and almost immediately tried to dissolve the old Cabinet and to appoint the new one.
