Is Governor Jonah Jang of Plateau State a serious leader? How reasonable is it for a king whose domain is at war to be preparing for an installation ceremony? This is exactly what the governor is doing by fighting for the chairmanship of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF), it is like leaving leprosy to cure eczema.
Plateau State is burning every week with killing and maiming of innocent souls unabated but what bothers Governor Jang is to be the chairman of NGF at all cost.
I feel he should be deeply touched by the plight of the people who witness this unending calamity during his tenure. A thoughtful person who finds himself in a situation that he finds himself in his state will reject the NGF position even if it’s entrusted to him.
What should be top on his priority list is how to rescue his people from this mortal storm that decreases them in numbers daily and weekly. Will he be fighting for the position if any of his siblings was affected in the incessant bloody crisis?
He should realise that the king that rules and his people enjoy peace and stability, his name will be written in gold and he that rules and the people suffer untold hardship and ruin will be remembered for his failure to find solution to the problem afflicting his people. Jang is wining and dining with the powers that be in Abuja while Plateau State burns. It is absurd; he is a replica of the biblical Jonah who sleeps when there was trouble in the sea.
