Lalong urges opposition to join him
From Christiana Gokyo, Jos
The Plateau State Governor Simon Lalong has called on the opposition party to join hands with him in developing the State and pursuing projects and programmes that will promote lasting legacies in the State.
He urged the people to intensify prayers for the peace and stability of the State which will enable rapid development for them.
The Governor stated this while reacting to the Supreme Court judgment on his victory, pointing out that he expected the victory because of delivering his campaign promises during the first tenure which endeared the people to vote for him.
While thanking the judiciary for their impartiality and contribution to consolidating democracy in the State and Nigeria as a whole, he said that the affirmation of his election victory by the Supreme Court has finally sealed and confirmed beyond further questioning the overwhelming mandate willingly bestowed on him by the good people of Plateau State.
“I again dedicate this victory to God and the people of Plateau State irrespective of their political, social, religious or ethnic affiliations,” he stated.
