Former Taraba State Governor, Rev. Jolly Tavoro Nyame, has revealed what he learned while serving his jail term in the Kuje Correctional Centre, Abuja.
Nyame made the revelation during a Thanksgiving service that took place at the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, Secretariat in Jalingo, Taraba State capital.
The former governor promised to emerge as a more capable leader following his incarceration if given a second chance to preside over the affairs of the state.
He explained that the experience had bestowed invaluable lessons, shaping him into a better leader for the people of Taraba State.
Nyame stated, “I learned a lot while in Kuje Prison and in 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 emphasized the importance of faith and resilience, advising leaders to stand strong in the face of challenges.
Nyame, who served only four years of a 14-year sentence, said that his imprisonment was politically motivated.
He called on Nigerians to be prudent in their expenses, urging the government to prioritize policies that enhance citizens’ lives.
