The Mambilla Hydro Power project located in Sardauna Local Government Area of Taraba State, which is now gradually translating into reality if work continues at the same pace, would no doubt catapult the rating of All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state to the high heavens. But it would as well further strengthen the Peoples Democratic Parry (PDP) in Taraba, which is bent on maintaining its leadership position in the state ahead of the next election.
At the moment, both political parties are claiming glory for making the resurrection of the project possible since it had lain fallow and unattended to by previous PDP administrations.
While the teeming followers of APC, especially lovers of President Mohammadu Buhari, are solidly rooting for Buhari’s administration for appointing Mr. Saleh Mamman Minister of Power from the state, supporters of PDP are, on their part, also loudly commending the state governor, Arc. Darius Dickson Ishaku, who they believe facilitated the process while serving as minister of state for power in the last political dispensation.
