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.
