Nigeria’s Governor Simon Lalong in northcentral part of Plateau state, has charged citizens not to vote the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP), as it will take the state back to the days when salaries were owed for over eight months.
Lalong said civil servants will not forget in a hurry the untold hardship suffered in the previous administration, adding that voting the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC), will permanently end the quest by the PDP to recapture power.
He made this known while speaking at the Southern zone rally for his reelection bid in Shendam local government area of the state.
“We should continue to reject the PDP at the polls because they have nothing to offer rather than coming to bring back hardship.
“Don’t forget in a hurry when you did not receive salaries for over eight months.
“The APC government has in less than four years resuscitated the fertilizer blending plant in Bokkos, we have stemmed the hitherto open-ended spate of violence and have diversified the state’s economy to agriculture with amazing results to be savored in the not-too-distant future.
“We have empowered women and youths like never before; we have resuscitated hitherto moribund state-owned industries and have completed most of the multi-billion naira projects which we inherited from past administrations and also embarked on new turn-key projects, such as the Lalong Legacy Projects, among numerous others”, he said.
He appealed to people in the southern zone to come out massively to vote for APC in the forthcoming coming elections.
On his part, the APC chairman in Plateau Hon. Latep Dabang, who also spoke at the occasion said Lalong has done well in prompt payment of salaries of workers, adding that to continue the good work electorates should return him back with their PVCs, he said.
