EndSARS Protest: New Taraba commissioner resumes work under tree


New Commissioner of Co-operatives and Poverty Alleviation in Taraba State, Mr. Jethro Yakubu, resumed work under a tree on Wednesday, a situation caused by the violence that trailed the EndSARs protest.

The Co-operatives and Poverty Alleviation ministry’s office was destroyed in the violence that followed the hijacking of the EndSARs protest by hoodlums last year’s October.

Since then, the ministry staff have been working under a tree.

Yakubu joined the staff at the work place on his resumption on Wednesday where he performed his task.

The situation drew the comment of the Permanent Secretary in the ministry, Mr Jibrin Na Wukari, via an interview with Daily Trust.

“This is where we always sit and now that the raining season is here, you should not be surprised if you come to work and you meet no one.

“There is no functioning office here. We hope that with your coming, the state governor would do the needful and we would be able to have a conducive working environment,” Wukari told the paper.
