Governor Darius Ishaku of Taraba State

The Taraba State government has debunked a story published in The Guardian newspaper edition of Thursday April 2, 2020 claiming that Taraba State now has one positive case of Coronavirus infection as false.

A statement by the Senior Special Adviser to the governor on media and publicity, Bala Dan Abu said that Taraba State, as at today, has NO case of Coronavirus virus infection.

It further added that the management of the newspaper has accordingly acknowledged its mistake and has today ( April 3, 2020) published a retraction.

“I wish to use this medium to urge the general public to disregard the falsehood published earlier by The Guardian as well as the reactions that have trailed it on social media”.

The administration of Gov Darius Dickson Ishaku has worked very hard to achieve this zero-infection figure. We give credit for this to Almighty God and the people of the state for cooperating with the administration on this very critical issue”.

Abu urged the public to continue to adhere to the rules of personal hygiene and social distancing and to avoid handshakes, as the state government will do everything possible to mitigate the pains of the lockdown which begins at 11pm today in the state.

“Together we shall work to keep Coronavirus out of Taraba State. Join us” the statement concluded.
