Jang attributes senatorial victory to God

Jonah Jang

The Plateau State Governor, Jonah Jang, has dedicated his victory in the National Assembly elections to the entire state.

The out-going governor who is completing his second four year tenure in office, under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, contested and won the just concluded National Assembly elections for Plateau North Senatorial seat and defeated the All Progressives Congress candidate, Eunice Sambo.

Governor Jang, through his Director of Press and Public Affairs, James Mannock, attributed his victory at polls to the will of God, and called on aggrieved persons to accept the verdict as an act of God​.​

He also pleaded for peace among constituents for the sake of the Easter celebrations holding from Friday to Sunday.

“Governor Jang in his Easter message notes that Christians should appreciate God for his faithfulness for sacrificing his only Son for the salvation of mankind.

“He admonishes Christians to continue to promote peaceful coexistence and love towards one another irrespective of affiliations,” Mr. Mannock said in a statement.

Mr. Jang’s victory has been greeted with criticisms as some Jos residents and the opposition APC say Mr. Jang was not popular enough to win the election and rigged the election.

M​s​. Sambo said ​she ​will contest Mr. Jang’s victory in court as she alleged massive rigging by the PDP during the polls.

Governor Jang, during the last lap of his electioneering campaigns, told a gathering at Bassa in a town hall meeting that his senatorial ambition was to ensure that Plateau State gets its lion share of the nation’s national cake.

    Yes you contested but, you did not win the senatorial seat for Jos North we didn’t vote for you. Thanks to modern technology, we shall recount the votes in court to expose your shameful deeds. For the past 8 yrs how did you promote peaceful coexistence in Plateau?. Your remarks or lack of are all on the record. While being the king of Plateau for the past 8 yrs, all resources meant for the entire State went to you, your family and cronies. On top of everything, you also too our salaries and God will punish you till your grave. By God’s grace you are not going to any senate, it is not meant for selfish thwarts like you.

    it is gets increasingly irritating hearing “act of God/ will of God ” from clearly corrupt politicians. if mr jang can honestly say with every iota of truth that he did not manipulate, encourage people to manipulate, or influence the outcome of the election, then truly the people made their choice. But i am willing to bet that mr jang did, manipulate, encourage people to manipulate, and influence the outcome of the election. To say “victory is an act/will of God” is beyond me.
