Langtang North PDP accuses Plateau Govt of voting N3 million to recall lawmaker

The Peoples Democratic Party in Langtang  North of Plateau state has vowed to resist a plot  allegedly being orchestrated by  Governor Simon Lalong to remove  Hon. Godfrey  Lamdip,who is  representing the constituency in the state House of Assembly.

PDP Deputy Chairman for Langtang North, Ventim Tyem who spoke with newsmen in Jos on Thursday after an executive meeting in their LGA  said they had discovered from a reliable source that the state government has already released the sum of three million naira to some of its political appointees to carry out the plot

According to him, the party is also aware that the state government is desperate for re election in 2019 and its desire to weaken the strength of opposition in  Plateau southern zone which prompted it to initiate the recall process of Lamdip, an exercise which he said will surely fail.

Tyem maintained that the member representing Langtang North North is a committed and loyal party man who has committed no offence but   has represented his  constituency creditably and wondered why the Governor would want to remove him as lawmaker

He further pointed out that Langtang North North constituency is  PDP adding that the governor should stop diverting the people’s  attention with frivolities in order to cover up his administration’s non-performance in the state

Rather than further wasting the state resources on fruitless ventures,the PDP chieftain  urged the Governor  to, as a matter of urgency, conduct local government election  and also  release constituency project funds to all the members of the House of Assembly   to enable them  bring development to the people at the grassroots.
