The Chairman of People Democratic Party, PDP, Plateau State Chapter, Hon Chris Hassan has said Plateau people are not represented at the National under the All Progressives Congress, APC, since Lalong became the Governor of the state.
Addressing the infrastructural deficit under Governor Simon Bako Lalong, Chris Hassan lamented the PDP projects are littered everywhere but the situation became so worrisome that even the appointment of the board, members, and other key sectors the state is completely neglected.
He said the Governor Simon Lalong is a young man and posterity shall judge us, Plateau state is a home of peace and tourism, the founding fathers are very accommodative that is the reason why every tribe comes to settled here because we a miniature Nigeria with all the tribes’ residence in Plateau.
We are indeed surprised that Lalong gas has forgotten the ideals of Plateau heritage; we want to keep the record straight to be a reminder of achievements during the PDP-led government but with that APC government no single record. He challenged the APC to come out with all the records of development appointments of Boards, Parastatals, and ambassadorial lists in the state.
Hassan emphasized that the dynamic of politics is glaring, with Lalong as the Chairman of 19 Northern governors Plateau can’t beat her chase by counting how many of their sons and daughters are members of any aboard that is a big shame.
The only vacuum position given to Plateau indigent was the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Jos so what is the pride of a Plateau man with Lalong heading the Governors forum, Chris Hassan cautioned.
He called on Governor Simon Lalong to know the plight of the state, “we don’t have any representative at the federal level “, what the last government did was to create infrastructure and create new but the APC completed the old no single achievement to show.
Chris says,” We thank God that Lalong is still a young man he might live to regret after the years of his governance because Plateau has not benefited from APC government since 2015.
He warned that Plateau those land grabbers should stay clear of their action, our people have not been conquered through jihad so they won’t conquer under the present political dispensation considering our neighboring Kaduna state they’ve so many representatives at the Federal level but worst in Plateau state.
The PDP Chairman explained that we are trying to educate and enlighten our people to vote for a credible political party that has grassroots development, he said.
Hassan disclosed that in less than 3 months Kaduna state has an international airport but Plateau state Yakubu Gowon Airport was neglected and abandoned there for decades, stressing that the major renovation which they started has been taken over by grasses and snakes.
