Nigeria Achievers Award 2019: The Many Outstanding Achievements Of Rev. Jolly T. Nyame (photos)

A mentor, an icon, political hero. Nyame is his name.  His name is written in the heart of every Taraban. HE. Rev. Jolly T. Nyame a.k.a  Dabang Yorro, former governor Taraba state. Nyame has created unforgettable legacies worthy of emulation.

Being the Jagaban, the political godfather, the spearheading political conqueror of all time.. In 1990, Nyame who ran under the defunct Social Democratic Party (SDP), virtually confronted and floored more accomplished politicians like Abubakar Barde, a former governor of old Gongola State, Samuel Suleiman Danjuma who later became his deputy, Yakubu Tuktur, a former commissioner for agriculture and others to become first civilian governor of the newly created Taraba State.

Nyame's eventual governorship contest which pitched him against urbane Gboko based medical doctor, late Dr Ando Shiaki of the defunct National Republican Convention (NRC) who also emerged from a close contest featuring powerful contestants including Dr Ahmed Jalingo, A professor of political science from Bayero University, Kano. Nyame dedicated his rule to the service of his people.

But Nyame whose first and second tenures (1999-2017) have been bogged down by primordial ethno-religious unrest and other distractions has nevertheless fulfilled his election promises to the people of Taraba.

Some of Nyame's modest accomplishment:

~ completion of the major dual carriage way in the city centre of Jalingo.
