We are again constrained to respond to the repeated and nauseating ranting of the factional spokesperson of the nearly non-existent Plateau State PDP, John T. Akans, who woke up with another concoction of lies and innuendos claiming that his party is vindicated over the “massive corruption and incompetence of the Lalong administration”.

His misguided salvo according to him is hinged on a so-called public letter generated by an amorphous and faceless group called Plateau Rescue Front (PRF) which claims to be part of the APC.

We are not surprised that the factional spokesperson of the PDP has nothing with which to attack the Government of Rt. Hon. Simon Bako Lalong, than adopting a so-called public letter by this unknown and mischievous group as the basis of his sermon and homily.

This vindicates the fact that the PDP in Plateau State is in total disarray and on the verge of total collapse where it only feels that its survival can only be guaranteed when it de-markets the APC or attack Governor Simon Lalong with lies and fabrications. They are definitely still hurting from their rejection by the people of the State in 2015 and 2019 as well as the persistent fragmentation of the party by various interest groups which also happened recently when they held their congresses.

First, we do not want to glorify the letter purportedly written by the so-called PRF because it is obviously the handiwork of agents of the PDP who want to discredit the Rescue Administration of Rt. Hon. Simon Bako Lalong at all costs. Clearly, this group cannot be described as stakeholders of the APC as they are not known to the party, much as the PDP will like people to believe. They are equally not card carrying members of the party. They do not even qualify as members of the caucus of the APC. Rather, they are definitely fronting for the PDP hiding under pseudo acronyms so as to engineer the kind of distraction and confusion that is bedeviling the PDP ever since they fell out of power. If they were members of the APC and truly concerned, they would have availed themselves of the party’s structure to make their case or approach government directly. Besides, their claims are bogus, wild and unsubstantiated.

It is rather depressing and laughable for the PDP whose reputation for corruption is legendry to accuse the Lalong administration of taking huge loans without constructing a single lane of road in the State when it is obvious that the PDP looted the monies they claimed to have spent on projects during their years in power only to leave the State with huge contractual obligations which the Lalong administration has committed to addressing. Have they forgotten that the EFCC is still battling to trace billions allegedly carted away by some officials in the last PDP administration?.

Maybe the PDP has forgotten the retinue of the uncompleted projects it bequeathed to the APC which Governor Simon Lalong instead of following the tradition of jettisoning projects of preceding administrations, decided to complete in the general interest of the people. The Mararaban Jama’a to Joseph Gomwalk Secretariat flyover road is one of such roads which the previous government abandoned that the Lalong administration completed. The Rantya, Low cost, Rafiki, Dong roads were initiated and completed by the present administration, yet the PDP sees no “single road”.

The other wild allegation is that the Government spent 4.5 billion naira on luxury cars and a whopping 1.4 billion to install GPRS tracking devices on 100 of them, amounting to 14million naira per car. How much does a car cost that it will take 14million naira to track it? This outrageous and malicious lie does not deserve any response because this fiction is only in the head of the authors who clearly have nothing to raise than this spurious lies and contraptions. In as much as all reasonable persons will never buy this lie, we advise the PDP to remember that opposition does not amount to destruction and fabrication of libelous and defamatory content.
