2019: Sen Dariye drums support for president Buhari, Lalong from prison
AS part of the efforts to consolidate on the achievements of the All Progress Congress-led administrations in Plateau State and the national level respectively, the Senator representing Plateau Central, Senator Joshua Dariye has called on the people of Plateau and Nigeria to vote Governor Simon Lalong and President Mohammadu Buhari come 2019.
It would be recalled that Senator Dariye who is serving a jail term at kuje prison had earlier indicated his interest to contest for the senatorial ticket of APC for Plateau Central but jettisoned the aspiration few weeks to the senatorial primary.
The senator who was is a former governor of Plateau State made the call in a statement signed by his former Campaign Director, Chief Maichibi Vwarji added that APC under the leadership of the duo has performed creditably and as well stabilise the policy.
“Governor Simon Lalong, in particular, has performed to the admiration of quite a lot of people. Despite the recent security breach in the State, he has been able to stabilise and promote mutual coexistence among groups, which gives credence to the prevailing peace.
” The civil service reform couple with prompt payment of salaries of civil servants and pension have earned him the sobriquet of Governor Alert. Apart from initiating new projects across the state, the governor had also completed projects inherited from his predecessors,” he said.
He commended the leadership of State chapter of All Progressive Congress from the ward to the state level for the peaceful conduct of all the primaries and advised all party faithful in the State to sustain the tempo.
Said he: ” The emergence of Governor Simon Bako Lalong as a consensus gubernatorial flag bearer of APC in Plateau State was the sign of his acceptance and therefore need the support of all to continue with the good work.”
He, however, appealed to the people of Plateau Central Senatorial Zone and the entire state, to close ranks and give all the support needed to Gov Lalong and President Buhari for governor and President, respectively.
