Plateau state governor, Jonah Jang has promised to support the incoming All Progressives Congress (APC) government of Mr Simon Lalong to succeed for the good of Plateau people.
Jang made the promise in Jos at a Church Service to mark this year’s Democracy Day and transition. He said that he and other former governors of the state are willing and ready to support Lalong.
“Anyone who is on that seat we all will support the person to succeed in other to make Plateau greater,’’ he assured.
He stated his government, just like other administrations the world over was unable to complete all the projects it set out to execute in the last eight years and hope that the incoming administration would complete them.
“We have completed some of the projects some are ongoing and others are still on the drawing board and we hope that incoming government would complete them.
“When we came on board in 2007, there were some uncompleted projects initiated by the administration before us and we completed them,’’ he said.
Mr Simon Lalong, governor-elect, tasked Plateau people to love one another and remain united saying that it is only through unity that the desires of the people would be met.
Lalong who was represented by Mr his aide James Barry, said that hatred destroys a people but love unites and helps in the process of bringing the desired development.
The governor-elect appreciated God for keeping Nigeria and indeed Plateau one and promised not to do anything that would threaten the unity of the people.
Mr Titus Alams, Speaker, Plateau House of Assembly, in his remarks said that they would be leaving office as happy persons because of the legacies they are leaving behind.
Alams said that the legislative arm under his leadership served the people with all their hearts and that made it possible for the achievements recorded in the state.
He, however, apologised to civil servants that are owed salaries saying that it was not deliberate and blamed the dwindling oil revenue for the situation.
Pastor Chidiebere Harry, Chaplain, Plateau Government House Chapel, urged leaders to take responsibility for their actions as they would give account of their actions to God.
The cleric who anchored his sermon on Genesis 2:5 tasked those who have been elected to occupy leadership positions to take responsibility so that God would release His blessings unto them.
