Gov. Simon Lalong of Plateau says he will liaise with Mr Idris Wase, Deputy Speaker, House of Representatives, to push for rehabilitation of Jos- Saminaka-Zaria federal road.
Lalong stated this on Tuesday at the launching campaign for Pengana state House of Assembly constituency by-election slated for Aug. 3.
He said the State Government was aware of the dilapidated nature of the road which was the shortest to Kaduna and Zaria from Jos.
He said there was no better time to approach the Federal Government for the rehabilitation of the road than now that a son of Plateau is Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives.
The governor added that apart from the federal road, his administration was committed to constructing some roads in Pengana chiefdom.
He further said that his administration was negotiating with investors who indicated interest to resuscitate BARC Farms following its repurchase by the state government.
He appealed to the people to keep faith with the All Progressives Congress (APC) and vote its candidates in Saturday’s election.
The deputy speaker, who attended the campaign launch, assured the people that he would support Lalong in the pursuit of the rehabilitation of the road.
“This road is going to be included in the ones that we are going to be pursuing.
“We are going to pursue this because the governor believes in connecting Plateau with the north and other parts of country.
“Colleagues and brothers we must give the governor support and a very peaceful time to work.
“The governor will not have peaceful time to work if he doesn’t have good members of the state assembly that will cooperate with him to deliver dividends of democracy,” Wase said.
He urged the people to vote for the APC candidate whom he believed would support Lalong to take the state to the next level.
Chief Letep Dabang, Plateau APC Chairman,thanked the people for overwhelmingly voting the party in the 2019 general elections.
Dabang called for a minute silence for late Hon. Ezekiel Afom who was re-elected on the platform of the party to represent Pengana constituency in the State Assembly but died before his swearing-in.
The APC candidate for Saturday’s election, Yakubu Sanda, thanked the party for giving him the opportunity to fly its flag.

He eulogized Wase as one of the dedicated, loyal and patriotic sons of Plateau State, who had continued to serve the State and the nation with integrity and excellence.
“The Rt. Hon. Ahmed Wase is a consummate politician and a reliable ally who puts the interest of his people above personal gains.
” He has used his influence to promote the cause of Plateau State by putting up strong arguments and lobbying for the good of the State at the National Assembly,” he said.
Lalong recalled that Wase, recently, led a delegation of all elected National Assembly members from Plateau State who donated some money to the Plateau State COVID-19 Endowment Fund.
He said the deputy speaker had also personally donated palliatives to the State and many people in his constituency, apart from executing constituency projects which have touched the lives of the people positively.
Lalong appreciated the Deputy Speaker for supporting the programmes and projects of his administration and prayed for more years of peace, good health and progress for him.

Gov. Lalong assures Plateau children of protection from abuse
Gov. Simon Lalong of Plateau, has assured children in the state of protection from all forms of abuse as well as improved health care services.
Lalong gave the assurance in a message by his Director of Press and Public Affairs, Dr Makut Macham on Wednesday to mark the annual Children’s Day.
He said his administration was committed to providing a better environment for children by improving the quality of education in the state.
According to him, to sustain the already established tempo, the government has organised online radio and television lessons for children as a result of the lockdown occasioned by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The governor said the gesture was to help the children keep abreast with learning in spite the closure of schools due to COVID-19.
He described children as the hope of Nigeria, who deserved all the love and care available, to prepare them for the future as they grow to take over the responsibility of leadership.
“Though this year’s children’s day is being marked in a low key manner owing to the coronavirus pandemic, the significance of the day cannot be lost because they remained the heartbeat of our society and hold the key to our future.
“We must therefore continue to invest in their education, health and psychological development so as to prepare them for the task ahead,” he said.
Lalong also assured Nigerians that the decision to remove all Qur’anic students (Almajiri) from the streets and return them to their parents, was borne out of the need to safeguard their future.
He said the action was aimed at integrating them back into the society where they can access education and proper care.

“Right from the time you were Speaker of Rivers State House of Assembly to when you became governor, and now minister, you have left no one in doubt that you are a stickler to excellence, due process and justice.
“You have therefore, left indelible footprints behind you, and Nigerians are today witnessing a revolution in the Transport Industry, particularly the Railway sector since you took over.
“I pray God to give you the grace to continue to assist Mr. President as he restores the sector to full operations,” he said.
Lalong wished him many more years of joy and happiness while urging him to continue giving his best to the growth and sustenance of Nigeria’s democracy.

Eid-el-Fitr : Gov. Lalong tasks Muslims on prayers to end COVID-19
Gov. Simon Lalong of Plateau has urged Muslims to pray for an end to the Coronavirus and the progress of the state, as they celebrated Eid-el-Fitr.
The governor in a statement by his Director of Press and Public Affairs, Dr Makut Macham on Saturday in Jos, urged them to intensify prayers as the pandemic had interrupted normal activities and economic prosperity.
According to him, the challenges of COVID-19 will linger for a long time and will require lifestyles that are commensurate with the teachings of the people’s faiths, as people and governments work together to recover from its effects.
The governor rejoiced with Muslims as they marked the religious event in a solemn way, resulting from the pandemic, while congratulating them for successfully concluding the Ramadan fast, which was a significant injunction of the Islamic Faith.
“While this year’s Eid-el-Fitr may be celebrated in solemnity and privacy of your homes, the occasion nonetheless, presents the opportunity for our Muslim brothers and sisters to reflect on the spiritual benefits accruing from their fasting and prayers,” he said.
The governor urged them to apply the spiritual benefits of Ramadan to their lifestyle, to ensure a better society where love, peace and tranquility existed.
Lalong appealed to Muslims to continue to cooperate with the government, by observing all regulations put in place to curb the spread of the disease.
He stressed the need for them to observe social distancing, personal hygiene, use face masks and stay at home, especially as the state was witnessing community transmission in some areas.
He urged Muslims to reach out to the less privileged members of the society and people of other faiths, to foster bonds of friendship and brotherhood that promoted tolerance, peace and solidarity.

Gov Lalong inaugurates advisory committee on community policing
Gov. Simon Lalong of Plateau on Friday inaugurated a 17-member State Advisory Committee on community policing.
The committee is expected to supervise and guide the state government in the implementation of the community policing policy programme.
Lalong, in a brief speech at the ceremony, said that the committee was the highest custodian of community policing charged with handling all matters in that regard.
He said that the committee comprised of critical stakeholders such as the Chairman, Council of Chiefs and Emirs, Da Jacob Gyang Buba, and the Commissioner of Police, Edward Egbuka, who would serve as co-chairmen.
“With this array of distinguished personalities assembled in this Committee, I have no doubt that the massive wealth of experience gathered by them will be deployed into providing leadership that will make community policing a success.
“The Federal Government, which nominated you for this critical assignment, shall be expecting nothing less than your very best.
“In the same vein, the government and people of Plateau will also be looking up to you to act in the best interest of peace and security,” he said.
Lalong charged the members to be focused and resolute in carrying out their assignment, urging them to shun every distraction that could arise from religious, ethnic or political pressures.
“You should also be determined to overcome any attempt by criminals and their sponsors to drag you into controversies aimed at scuttling your assignment.
“You must resist these tendencies by remaining faithful and patriotic to your task,” he said.
He said that security was a major priority of his administration, adding that efforts had been put in place to overcome the crises that bedeviled the state in recent years.
He regretted that Plateau was still confronted with crimes such as banditry, kidnapping, robbery and violent clashes that had continued to threaten the tranquility of the land.
“It is to nip such criminal tendencies in the bud that we became one of the first States to adopt the Community Policing Option in securing the lives and properties of our people,” he said.
Represented by the Deputy IGP in charge of Development and Training, Mr Shehu Lawal, he said that community policing was to complement the duties of the Police Force.
He said that other committees to work with the advisory committee were the Area command and Divisional Police advisory committees on community policing, explaining that the later would work with ward heads and local government chairmen.
According to him, the Divisional Police Committee is primarily for community awareness and sensitisation, and the screening of those to be recruited in the communities.
“It is a voluntary service and will not engage hooligans; only responsible persons will be screened, recruited and trained,” he said.
The Gbong Gwong Jos and Chairman, Council of Chiefs and Emirs in Plateau, Jacob Buba, who spoke on behalf of the committee, assured the governor that members would discharge their duties diligently.
He commended Lalong for championing security in the state, while praying to God to guide the committee to facilitate peace.

COVID-19: Gov Lalong decries flouting of curfew by travelers
Governor Simon Lalong of Plateau on Monday in Jos, decried the flouting of its 6pm to 7am curfew by desperate travelers coming into the state.
The governor, while monitoring some major borders in the state, said that the Plateau-Bauchi border and Plateau-Kaduna forest borders were notorious for the anomaly.
He said that the 17 COVID-19 cases so far recorded in Plateau were mostly from persons who came in from Kano and Lagos states.
He warned security agencies against laxity in their duties as they had been directed to stop vehicles not on essential duties from entering the state.
“I have said vehicles not on essential duties should not be allowed to enter the state as from 6pm. They should sleep at the point of arrest until 7am the next day to allow for thorough checks and medical examination of the occupants,” he said.
He said that through the Close Circuit Television (CCTVs) installed at the borders, he observed that trucks were still entering the state by 1am and 2am, especially at the Plateau-Bauchi border and Plateau-Kaduna forest borders.
Lalong said the visit was also to encourage enforcement officers at the borders to discharge their duties diligently and to know their challenges while on duty.
He said the state and community leaders had agreed to block all illegal routes in their domain, adding that defaulters would be turned back to where they came from.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the governor also visited the Vom-Manchok border, Jengre-Saminaka and Bauchi-Plateau borders, as well as the Mobile Court at Jengre in Bassa Local Government, where 138 defaulters had been convicted since it was established on April 9.

COVID-19: Gov. Lalong vows aggressive enforcement of preventive measures
Gov. Simon Lalong of Plateau, says the state government would aggressively enforce preventive measures to contain the spread of COVID-19, as confirmed cases in the state rise to 17.
Lalong said this in a statement issued by his Director of Press and Public Affairs, Dr Makut Macham, on Sunday in Jos.
“We are now going into aggressive enforcement of the regulations we rolled out as that is the best way for us to contain the rising cases.
“From all the cases we have, there is none that originated within the state; all of them are from people who sneaked into the state from our borders despite the closure.
“We will not allow this to continue especially at this time that we are doing contact tracing and working hard to curb community spread,” he said.
The governor urged for cooperation and concerted efforts to achieve effective contact tracing and stop community spread of the virus.
He appealed for calm, saying residents should not panic but continue to strictly adhere to preventive measures and regulations to combat the disease.
Lalong also urged residents to comply with the restriction of movement order, use of face masks, adherence to social distancing and observing personal and respiratory hygiene.
He expressed concern that some violators of the regulations on COVID-19 were instigating other residents to also disregard government directives.
“It is sad and unfair for people to take this position and try to instigate others to disregard our regulations. COVID-19 is real and for me, I lost two friends recently, one in Lagos and the other in Bauchi.
“They were both classmates and lawyers. Let us not put people at risk by not only being careless, but discouraging others from doing the right thing.
“I appeal to our people to take serious precaution and stay at home while observing all the regulations”, the governor said.
Lalong said that the total lockdown in the State, earlier relaxed, would resume midnight of Sunday, May 10, warning that violators would be arrested and prosecuted by mobile courts.
He also said essential vehicles would not be allowed into the state after 6 pm, until the next day by 7 am , to ensure thorough checks and medical examination.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Plateau currently has 17 confirmed cases, with its first index case now discharged.
