Governor Jolly Tavoro Nyame of Taraba State has promised to become a capable leader if re-elected.
He said this during a Thanksgiving service held at the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) secretariat in Jalingo, Taraba state. He added that he learned much while serving jail at the Kuje correctional centre.
Nyame revealed that the experience had taught invaluable lessons and that he has become a better potential leader for the people of the State.
“I learned a lot while in Kuje Prison and the hospital. If given another opportunity to lead the people of Taraba State, I will do better because of the experience I have gained,” he said.
He spoke about the importance of faith and resilience, urging leaders to stand firm in facing challenges.
Nyame was sentenced to 14 years but was released after serving four years in jail. He, however, said his imprisonment was politically motivated.
