From Tongnaan Bawa, Jos

Minister of Labour and Employment and Senator-elect for Plateau South Senatorial District Simon Lalong has welcomed with delight the judgement of the Court of Appeal declaring APC Candidate Dr. Nentawe Goshewe as the duly elected Governor of Plateau State.

Lalong said the declaration of the court is an affirmation of the mandate unanimously given to Dr. Nentawe and his running mate Pam Bot-Mang by the people of the State.

He said the development is a good omen to Plateau State as the Governor-elect Dr. Nentawe Yilwatda and his running mate will now have the opportunity to implement the Generation Next mantra and the ACEES agenda to take Plateau State to the next level.


The Minister said though the PDP and its ousted candidate Caleb Mutfwang have the constitutional right to exhaust all the legal opportunities available to them, he is confident that the victory of Dr. Nentawe will endure.

Lalong appeals to the members of the APC and the Governor-elect Dr. Nentawe Yilwatda to be magnanimous is victory and consider this joyous moment as a celebration for the entire people of Plateau State who are yearning for good governance, security and development.

He also calls on the citizens of Plateau State to continue to be law abiding and shun any attempt to incite them to take any unlawful action that is capable of threatening the peace and security of the State.
