May Lalong Never Happen to Plateau Again - Sen. Jang Prays

Former Plateau State governor, Jonah Jang, has slammed the outgoing administration led by Governor Simon Lalong, Politics Nigeria reports.

He said that the outgoing governor has stymied the state’s growth during the last eight years.

In a statement issued and signed on Monday by his Media Consultant, Clinton Garuba.

Jonah Jang regretted that the state’s governance had deteriorated during Lalong’s tenure, to the point where “one would not envy the incoming administration for the enormity of work that it has to do in rebuilding the people’s trust in Government, its programmes and policies”.

The former governor said this while reacting to Lalong’s administration’s last-minute activity, including the completion of various projects in preparation for his departure from power.

“At a time when sections of the state have come under attacks from people hell-bent on waging genocide on the people, the Government is rather hurriedly commissioning projects, some of which it even inherited as ongoing projects of the Jang administration to cover for 8 years of nothingness.

“Perhaps the government realized too late in the day that it had pursued personal political gains to the detriment of the general well-being of the State and is in a hurry to claim that it at least did something when in fact did almost nothing”.

“Every Plateau citizen knows that since the return of democracy in 1999, no government has paid attention to roads and infrastructure like the Jang administration.

“If Lalong and those who have failed to advise him on the need to be truthful as a leader think that they built Jos, the Plateau State capital from its foundation, let them continue to live in delusion. The outcome of the elections is a testimony to their performance in the last 8 years.

“Had they done better, Plateau people would have said so through the ballot box. Having failed, the best thing would be to quietly leave and continue with the lobby for appointment at the federal level where he had spent years of servitude abandoning the state to suffer a lack of leadership and governance.

Meanwhile, Jang advised Governor-elect Caleb Mutfwang not to waste any time in reconstructing the state when he takes office on May 29.

He expressed his condolences to the bereaved communities and wishes that the inauguration of the new administration would offer relief to the people and return the state to the road of progress and development.
