Plateau State Governor Simon Lalong has applauded his victory at Supreme Court, urging his political opposition to join hands in bulding lasting legacies for the people of the state.
Mr Lalong, in a statement by his director of press and public affairs, Dr. Makut Macham, said the court verdict has finally sealed and confirmed beyond further questioning “the overwhelming mandate willingly bestowed on him by the good people of Plateau State”.
“The Governor again repeated his call to the opposition to join hands with him in developing the State and pursuing projects and programs that will promote lasting legacies for the people,” he said.
Mr Lalong said all along he was never in doubt as to the validity of his mandate, adding that he did not only campaign and engage all stakeholders, but also delivered on his campaign promises during the first tenure which endeared the people to him.
He said: “I again dedicate this victory to God and the people of Plateau State irrespective of their political, social, religious or ethnic affiliations.
“The highest court in the land has stamped the mandate I was given and this means that our administration is now clear of litigation distractions.”
According to him, it is now time for governance and actualisation of the next level agenda encapsulated in the 3 point vision of peace, security and good governance; Infrastructural development and sustainable economic rebirth.
