- Says I rather take chemical and die than allow Longjan be my successor
- Travels out of the country
The sun appeared to have finally set on the political career of Governor Jonah David Jang, the rumours of his walking out of the National Working Committee meeting on the substitution of his political godson who was faced with stiff opposition during the race of governorship on the recent PDP delegates’ primaries in December.
President Goodluck Jonathan may faces bigger problems than his current political travails in Plateau state if Jang imposed candidate is retained, as indications emerged that when he returns from his overseas trip either from medical treatment or spiritual war the state is battle ready for a showdown.
The governor was reported to have travelled with his wife after the three days fracas which he refused adamantly that nobody can replace GNS Pwajok .
Universalreporters247.com investigations revealed that the plot to stop Pwajok return to Government House in Rayfield is in full gear.
Universalreporters247.com beams its searchlight on certain issues involving the romance of Jang and Presidency since the election of Governor Jang as the Chairman Nigerian governors’ forum which received condemnation and rejection from political pundits as 11 is not greater that 16.
However, painstaking as these investigations were said to be, universalreporters247.com learnt that Jang openly declared that; “if Amb. Ignatius Longjan is to be my next successor over my dead body, I rather take chemical and die than allow him to be the next Governor of Plateau state.”
Information available revealed that PDP headquarter three days ago, apart from scrutinizing the books of his suspension, are also planning to take drastic action that might not go down well with Jang camp.
Going simultaneously with this, is the plan by the influential Abuja politicians to press for the restructuring of the PDP machinery in Plateau state.
That exercise may yield Fidelix Tapgun, a former Plateau governor, as state chairman, if this works out, and this would technically knock out the agitation by Simon Lalong the former speaker who is waiting for sympathy votes from the people of Plateau.
There are strong indications that the National Working Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party may suspend the Plateau state chapter of the party as the three days stakeholders meeting held in Abuja aimed at substituting the current flag-bearer ended in a deadlocked.
The meeting which was held behind close door at the party secretariat, saw Sen. Ibrahim Mantu, the former Senate President, flogs a dead horse by pouring invective on Jonah David Jang over his refusal to sign the returning forms.
He declared him politically dead and buried, for not winning the PDP Governorship primaries for the governor who has proclaimed himself as Plateau State ultimate political leader who make use of Abuja connections to whip his enemies.
Jang tears of fears and agony of losing the seat to another southern candidate who will dig into his past contracts dirty family affairs catapulted to him India or Israel to consults oracle.
Mantu said; ” I have never seen anybody in my life that is as insensitive to advice as Governor Jang, if he had been listening to people like me, who has been advising him to do the right thing, he would have been the toast of the people of Plateau state. We fell out when he became insensitive to the zoning arrangement, the millions of Naira I collected was part of my work in flogging Dariye for him.”
