PDP: Plateau governor not doing enough to curb killings

A member of the Board of Trustee (BOT) for the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Prof Sam Oyovbaire, has described the reasons put forward for defection to All Progressives Congress (APC), by the three (3) PDP governors as baseless, illogical and untenable to the doctrines of democratic principles, norms and values.

The Plateau State main opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has said governor Simon Bako Lalong does not need the control of security agencies to curb killings in the State.

The party’s spokesman, Emmanuel Go’or in a statement credited to the state Acting Chairman of APC, Enoch Fanmak, said that governor Lalong had done enough to stop killings in the state but for lack of direct control of the security agencies.

Speaking at a press conference in Jos on Tuesday, he said, “if the weekly harvest of dead bodies and invaded communities are the marks of Governor Lalong’s best, then he was never ready for governance.

“Even now, he is leaning on a tottering fence as Mr Governor is simply enamoured by the glamour of his office and unhealthily distracted by chores outside the state in the name of chairmanship of Northern Governors’ Forum.”

The opposition party noted that all the governor needed was to be decisive enough to face the blood-sucking monsters that have targeted Plateau people for their meals.
