Gov. Simon Lalong of Plateau State

Governor Simon Lalong of Plateau State has described as lie news making the rounds in some sections of the media that he parts of Ryom, Barking Ladi and Bokkos Local Government Areas of the state have been carved out for the creation of colonies for cattle.

According to a press release signed and issued on Friday by the governor’s special advicer on media and publicity, Mr. Dan Manjang, the reports which claimed that the Plateau State Chief Executive had done so in the fulfilment of his promises to the Fulani who had pressured him to either cede those areas or face the other side of their viciousness which might cost his aspiration, it is not only a figment of the authors’ imagination, who want to make political capital of it, but false, malicious and highly mischievous.

Below is the full statement:
“The attention of the Executive Governor of Plateau State, Rt. Hon. Simon Bako Lalong has been drawn to the news making the rounds, particularly in the Social Media that “parts of Riyom, Barkin Ladi and Bokkos Local Government Areas have been carved out for the creation of colonies for cattle, in fulfilment of his promises to the Fulani who have pressured him, to either cede those areas or he faces the other side of their viciousness which may cost his aspirations”.

The Governor herein after state unequivocally that this thinking is not only the figment of the imagination of its authors, who want to make political capital out of it, but false, malicious and highly mischievous.

Governor Simon Bako Lalong has and does not contemplate such action and he further calls on all good citizens of Plateau to bury such imagination of these elements, who are bent on throwing the State into confusion. Cattle colonies are not in the imagination of Governor Lalong.

Consequently, the Governor urges all peace loving citizens of Plateau State to discountenance such mischievous information but to gravitate towards issues that unite us rather than those that divide us”.

Signed
