Our sources disclosed that the party stalwarts are embarking on series of closed-door meetings over the entire impeachment exercise where the majority leader and speaker were impeached.
Some political pundits told this medium that the Governor showed his anger and dissatisfaction with the way and manner they took the drastic decision without duly consulting him before striking hard on his favourite Goemai brother as he believes that the absence of his brother will spell doom for him politically in the House.
However, the journey of Governor Simon Lalong to 2019 can be considered turf mission if he continues to hold tight to his Goemai agenda which was the scenario that affected the former Governor Jonah David Jang and the PDP in the 2015 general elections when he brought his kinsman, Late Sen. GNS Pwajok of his blessed memory.
