An All Progressives Congress, APC, chieftain in Plateau state, Ado Ali Katyen has said that the State Governor Simon Bako Lalong deserves a second term in office, in order to enable him consolidate on the gains of democracy which he earlier promised the electorates.
Mr Ado Ali Katyen who disclosed this yesterday at Yelwa club at the All Progressives Congress (APC) stalwarts meeting in Jos also commended Governor Lalong government for working very hard to ensure that Plateau state is being restored back on the path of peaceful coexistence.
According to him, the present regime met very huge security challenges with all manner of problems including the non-payment of 7 months’ salaries owed civil servants and debts running into billions.
Katyen called for the repositioning of APC as that will go a long way in resolving many crisis, as he said this is so because those appointed as Management Committee Chairmen are not connected to the people at the grassroots, adding that there is need for restructuring of the party.
He expressed fear that if these problems are not tackled now, the 2019 will be very difficult as he said that Lalong should be supported for his second term bid.
Katyen stressed that Governor Simon Lalong has listening ear to the plight of the people of the state, “every right thinking person should allow him to consolidate for the next four years.”
Meanwhile, one of the APC chieftains, Col Sunday Kaswe (Rtd) said the two years of Governor Lalong has received so many commendations.
Plateau state has witnessed tremendous developmental strides owing to the transparency and honesty of Lalong who have delivered on his campaign promises he made during the electioneering campaign.
He lauded the Acting President Yemi Osinbajo for remaining resolute and committed to the project of transforming the state in spite of the health challenges of President Muhammadu Buhari who transmitted power before traveling for treatment.
Kaswe condemned a situation where some groups are praying for the dead of their President.
According to him, the dissolution of council chairmen is the best modalities to further move the state forward so that the party will appoint the right people to coordinating grassroots politics.
