The decision of the Supreme Court, the court of last resort, which upheld the re-election of Governor Simon Lalong vindicates and reaffirms the mandate that the good people of Plateau State gave him at the polls.
I congratulate Governor Lalong and commend his magnanimous reaction to the final outcome of the case, in which he extended a hand of fellowship to the opposition. I join Governor Lalong in making a clarion call on all political actors and other stakeholders in the Plateau Project to rally round the government in the larger interest of the State.
I urge Governor Lalong to continuously strive to justify the confidence reposed in him by the good people of Plateau State and concomitantly leave behind a legacy of superlative achievements.
Finally, I urge Governor Lalong to be wary of sycophants whose obsession is with the shenanigans of succession to the detriment of the imperative need to prioritize the security and welfare of the good people of Plateau State and thereby engender good governance in the polity.
God bless Plateau State.
