Sen. Jonah Jang, a former governor of Plateau State and leader of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has said that the G5 PDP governors and their allies, including himself, do not endorse Asiwaju Bola Tinubu for president of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Jang continued by saying that Governor Simon Lalong, the director general of Tinubu’s campaign, was daydreaming when he claimed that the G-5 supported Tinubu.
According to a statement made in Jos by Jang’s media advisor Clinton Garuba, they have made it clear time and time again that they do not personally disagree with the PDP candidate Atiku Abubakar, but rather with the procedure that produced him and the structural imbalance that resulted.
The G-5, also known as the integrity group, disagreed with the PDP and withdrew support for its presidential candidate’s campaign, but this in no way implies that they are backing the APC’s presidential nominee, according to him.
“The attention of former Governor of Plateau State Senator Jonah David Jang has just been drawn to recent comments attributed to the Governor of Plateau State, Rt. Hon Simon Lalong at the flag-off of the APC campaign rally, held at Wase that the G5 PDP governors are supporting the APC presidential candidate.
“Only Lalong and his fellow dreamers think so and will stop at nothing to mislead the public in order to get favorable feedback for a bad product they so desperately want to sell.”
The comments, which aimed to criticize and paint the former governor of the state in a negative light as well as win favor with his chosen candidate and the APC, are described in the statement as nothing more than the final gasps of a dying horse.
Garuba noted that typically they would have dismissed the vituperations as the tantrums of a deeply dissatisfied individual who has assumed a difficult task of marketing a substandard product all in the quest to be relevant.
The former governor further said that his successor failed miserably in all areas, including basic infrastructure, healthcare, tourism, and education. He claimed that throughout his whole tenure as governor, the man did nothing to promote the welfare and wellbeing of his people.
