Governor Lalong in a condolence message to the Dangin Family, the Tarok nation and entire people of Plateau state, signed by the lateau state Commissioner of Information and Communication, Mr. Yakubu Dati, made available to REALITY, recalls the deceased’s insistence on keeping the Plateau bond by respecting principles of togetherness and sharing of power by all parts of the state.
The message also praised the late statesman for his role in the Plateau Project which ensured Plateau people insisted on its power sharing arrangement irrespective of whose interest was affected.
According to the statement in party:-
“The Governor regrets that the wise counsel of the late Dangin will be missed especially, at this time when the peace effort of the Rescue Team is yielding results and the people will soon be going for another decision at the polls”.
The Plateau state Information and Communication Commissioner Yakubu Dati also conveyed Governor Lalong’s condolences to the Yoruba Community in the state over the death of the Oba Yoruba of Jos Solomon Olugbodi.
