Lalong not defecting to PDP – Commissioner

Plateau Commissioner for Information and Communication, Yakubu Dati, has said Governor Simon Lalong is not planning to defect to Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Dati in a statement yesterday in Jos said governor Lalong has never at any point contemplated leaving the All Progressives Congress (APC).
“The attention of the Plateau state government has been drawn to an alleged statement credited to an elder statesman, Amb.
Yahaya Kwande, alluding that the executive Governor of Plateau, Simon Bako Lalong may defect to the Peoples Democratic Party.
“There is no truth in the statement and Gov.
Lalong who is the sole candidate of the All Progressives Congress governorship primaries, has never contemplated nor discussed such disastrous proposition with anyone,” he said.
The commissioner said the clarification became necessary so as not to mislead well meaning citizens who have expressed concern, calling on the general public to “dismiss the plot that exists only in the imagination of its promoters.”
