APC bigwig and Executive Governor speaks on Dumping APC for PDP…
Governor Simon Lalong of Plateau State has addressed reports that he would be defecting to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)
Lalong in a statement signed by the State Commissioner for Information and Communication, Mr Yakubu Dati, debunked the report, adding that he has never at any point contemplated leaving the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The statement reads, “The attention of the Plateau State Government has been drawn to an alleged statement credited to an elder statesman, Amb. Yahaya Kwande, alluding that the Executive Governor of Plateau, Simon Bako Lalong may defect to the People’s Democratic Party.
“There is no truth in the statement and Gov. Lalong who is the sole candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship primaries, has never contemplated nor discussed such disastrous proposition with anyone,” he said.
The commissioner said that the clarification became necessary so as not to mislead well-meaning citizens who have expressed concern.
He called on the general public to dismiss the evil plot that exists only in the imagination of its promoters.
