- As He Calls For Calm Over Results
Plateau state Governor Simon Lalong has asked citizens of the state not to do anything that may affect the peace of the state.
Lalong said anyone who feels aggrieved over the result of the local government elections as announced by the Plateau State Independent Electoral Commission, PLASEIC should tow the Democratic path by approaching the local government elections petition tribunal to ventilate his or grievances.
The Governor in a message signed by state Information and Communication Commissioner Yakubu Dati said the tribunal and appeals committee were inaugurated even before the local government polls took place.
He said as a Democrat, he cannot interfere in the work of PLASEIC being an independent institution. He said PLASEIC leadership is credible and responsible and enquiries about the polls should be directed to it and not the governor.
Governor Lalong assures citizens of his administration’s commitment to peace,justice and fairness.
He said in any contest, there must be a winner and loser and therefore ask winners to be magnanimous in victory while losers should be humble in defeat.
