Lalong declares for 2019 – Daily Post Nigeria


Governor of Plateau State, Simon Bako Lalong, on Friday declared his intention to contest the governorship election in the state next year.

Lalong announced his decision, after the member representing Jos south/Jos east Federal constituency, Hon. Edward Pwajok, moved a motion to compel the Governor to declare.

A statement issued by the Commissioner for Information and Communication, Hon. Yakubu Dati, said the motion was seconded unanimously.

Dati claimed that Lalong had yielded to pressure from people of the state and stakeholders to re-contest.

According to him, the Governor received a standing ovation from stakeholders at the All Progressives Congress (APC) stakeholders meeting held at Yelwa Club in Jos, Plateau State.

The meeting chaired by the APC Chairman, Latep Dabang, had in attendance the entire party leadership in the state, the Deputy Governor and members of the State Executive Council.

“Others include the Hon. Speaker and members of the Plateau State House of Assembly as well as members of the National Assembly,” Dati added.
