The law maker representing the good people of Wukari 1 at the Taraba State House of Assembly (TSHA) and majority leader of the House, Hon Jethro Yakubu, has taken the bull by its horns since his assumption in office as a lawmaker of the state

Just a year into the office, the lawmaker has done so much not only in the normal business of lawmaking, but he has hits the ground running with mind blowing projects to alleviate some common challenges of the people of his constituency

No wonder, his friends and associates, recently put together a befitting dinner to celebrate his journey so far in the business of law making in the state
