Youths and Women of the All Progressive Congress APC resident in Giring ward , Abbatior Jos South local government area of Plateau state on Sunday gathered in support of Gov Simon Lalong saying they are proud to have him as Governor of the state .

“We commend our governor for awarding contracts to rebuild some roads in the three senatorial zones especially his efforts at completing some projects inherited by the immediate past administration .
We have visited the roads contact awarded and discovered that serious work is ongoing.”
He noted that It would be recalled that the State Government had in February last year awarded three contracts worth N5 billion for the construction of roads in Jos that benefiting communities say were neglected by previous governments.
The communities include Anguwan Rogo, Tudun Wada, Tina, Dutse uku and Chanyap all in Jos north local government area of the state.
The government awarded a contract of N1.5 billion to Letokem Nig Ltd for the construction of Anguwan Rogo to Ali Kazaure while N1.8 billion was awarded to Jolex Nig. Ltd for the construction of Tudun Wada to Mado village and China’s Chinazhonghao was awarded N1.7 billion contract for the construction of roads around Dutse Uku, Chanyap, Tina and others. ”
“Also the Lalong led administration in the middle of last year also awarded about 18 road projects in all the three senatorial zone of the state and work is ongoing. ”
“We the youths from this community have observed that our Governor is determined to make Plateau great and we are calling on him to contest the 2019 governorship elections as we are solidly behind him, we are behind him because of the good work he is doing in Plateau. “Lalong had done well in carrying along all tribes in governance ,and as youths we shall always say things the way they are at all times. “Our rescue Governor Simon Lalong has done well in his first two years in office and should be given the opportunity to continue to provide more dividends of democracy to Plateau citizens.” The APC leadership of the community also lauded Lalong for the restoration of peace in the state which has been in crises for over a decade, adding that peace was priceless and that by the grace of God peace had returned to Plateau, pointing out that there could no development without peace.
They however appealed to the people of the state to give the governor their support, adding that it was only by so doing that the state would grow faster. “The huge debt and backlog of salary arrears that Lalong inherited did not deter him from executing his plans for the people of the state. Giving what he inherited on ground in terms of debts, accumulated backlog of salaries and hostile labour environment, Lalong decided to take the bull by the horns.
“He cleared the backlog of the salaries by diligently and prudently applying the bailout funds
The deputy Chairman also appealed to Lalong to help repair the road in their community
