    Where was Akpabio and Gabriel Suswam? Did Oga@the top give them a whack on the head for the job badly done. Softly,softly no cry. Its just that we were expecting you to lead the naked dance in the market square in Abj.this evening.

    THIS IS SO PETTY AND SILLY. ALL THESE THIEVES HAVE NOTHING BETTER TO DO? THE PEOPLE IN YOUR STATE ARE SUFFERING FROM DECAYING INFRASTRUCTURE, LACK OF ELECTRICITY, INSECURITY, AND UNEMPLOYMENT AND YOU ARE BUSY FIGHTING FOR ANOTHER “CHOP-MONEY” POST.

    Painfully shameful…third world country..

      a fool at 70 is a fool for all eternity……..this old man Jang, who is close to the twilight of his life, standing in a church and justifying rigging as a Godly venture. You have to wonder how he wakes up in the morning and look at his children, knowing he is part of those who destroyed Nigeria’s future. You have to wonder if he has any counsel from his Pastor. you have to wonder how men like these, without moral or conscience, rose to prominent positions in this country…this is clearly a man of 70 years that is possessed of the moral of an alley cat……..

    This is the kind of ‘leadership’ Plateau State has been putting up with for nearly 6 yrs. I leave it to fellow Nigerians to judge for themselves and keep us in their prayers!..What a mess!, What a disgrace!.. We fool ourselves that we are practicing democracy yet, so many dishonourable people command so much power and resources and we wonder why there is no progress?…

  • Pivo679

    Mr Governor, please save us from this national embarrassment you are dragging the people of Plateau into. When are you going to start doing anything positive for the people of Plateau State?. We have been waiting for nearly 6 yrs now but it seems you only thrive where there is trouble and controversy why?. It is simple arithmetic square and clear!. I know this is how you think democracy works by changing the rules of the games as it suits you, a case in point, the way you have governed Plateau State. It does not work this way, you must understand that ‘pledges’ are not synonymous to ‘votes’!. It is the final result that counts not pledges, I really don’t know which planet you reside on, no wonder Plateau state NEVER experienced anything positive since your first term…God help us on the Plateau!!..

    This governor of Plateau must be a criminal. He must be investigated for all those died in that state during his tenure.

    Well, Jonah’s presence in the boat almost caused some people their life until he was throw into the sea. If Jonah was among the 12 disciples, perhaps, Christ would have been crucified before His time. Jonah is in the NGF and things are falling are now apart. Jonah is in the Plateau State Govt House and the state is engulfed in crisis. And now, Jonah fraternity with the Villa will lead those in the Rock to a certain destination. WATCH? Pray for Nigeria to overcome Jonahiac spirit of crisis.
