Former Taraba State Governor, Rev. Jolly Tavoro Nyame, shared insights into his experiences during his incarceration at the Kuje Correctional Centre, emphasizing the valuable lessons he gained.
Nyame disclosed these reflections during a Thanksgiving service held at the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) secretariat in Jalingo.
Expressing gratitude for the opportunity to address the congregation, Nyame pledged to emerge as a more capable leader if given a second chance to govern Taraba State. He asserted that the challenges faced during his time in prison had served as a transformative experience, shaping him into a better potential leader for the state.
“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,” stated Nyame during the service.
The former governor highlighted the importance of faith and resilience, offering advice to leaders to stand strong in the face of challenges. Nyame, who served only four years of a 14-year sentence, maintained that his imprisonment was politically motivated.
While reflecting on his personal journey, Nyame delivered a message of hope and unity for Nigerians, underscoring the significance of prayer and faith in the nation’s future. Additionally, he urged fellow citizens to exercise prudence in their expenditures and called on the government to prioritize policies that enhance the lives of its citizens.
As Nyame continues to navigate post-incarceration life, his reflections offer a perspective on personal growth and resilience, resonating with themes of faith, leadership, and the pursuit of a better future for Taraba State and Nigeria as a whole.
