Honourable Alamba Stated this while speaking to a team of journalists in Jos, the capital city of Plateau state.
” Let no one say I am not APC or I am not this or that; Plateau belong to all of us. And as destiny and providence has delivered us from tribal agenda, nepotism, impunity, sectionalism , and long years of deceit, just to mention but a few. Let us no longer divide ourselves . This is the time for unity among all Plateau ethnic groups”. He said.
The Berom elder who was speaking on the heels of the recent APC victory at the Plateau guber elections called on his fellow kinsmen, to join hands with the oncoming administration of Barrister Simon Lalong, Governor elect, who is from Shendam, Plateau south so as not to miss out in the scheme of things in the state, stating that ” As a Berom elder, let me call on my fellow kinsmen to come on board in the coming administration as this will show other Plateau people, and indeed other interested Nigerians, that governor Jang’s agenda is not a Berom nation’s agenda as we cannot afford to alienate ourselves from the Plateau project, which is the project of the people as was proven in the just concluded governorship race in the state.”
The outgoing governor, Jonah Jang of the PDP has been several accused of nepotism, impunity especially in the distribution of capital projects and social amenities in the state, and, in addition, to the manner in which the PDP primaries was conducted which saw an aspirant from the governor’s berom tribe emerged as flag bearer of the party in the state.
