The Taraba State Commissioner for Youth and Sports, Joseph Joshua, has expressed concern about the whereabouts of some of the ministry’s vehicles
Raising the alarm over the weekend in Jalingo, the state capital, Joshua vowed to implement mechanisms to unravel the mystery behind the missing vehicles.
According to him, plans have been finalised by his office to investigate the entire management staff of the ministry.
The vehicles he identified as missing from the ministry before his assumption are an ambulance, a 504 Peugeot, Toyota Hilux, and a Coaster bus.
He alleged that a former commissioner of the ministry made away with the 504 Peugeot while a director of the ministry went away with the Toyota Hilux.
“How can somebody take the government’s property worth millions of naira and sell it? I am planning on how to succeed; therefore, I am not afraid of any saboteur,” he said.
The commissioner also expressed sadness over the attitude of one of his directors, who allegedly traveled out of the state without the ministry’s approval.
Regarding the director’s action, which he deemed a violation of civil service rules, he stated, “I am telling you it’s not going to be business as usual. I am ready to work with people who believe in the vision of our administration, moving forward under the leadership of Governor Agbu Kefas.”
