2015: Plateau LG Boss Denies Plans To Succeed Jang

JONAH-JANGChairman of Mi­kang Local Gov­ernment Area of Plateau State, Hon. Dan­iel Kungmi, has debunked speculations that he plans to succeed the state Governor, Jonah Jang, during the 2015 gen­eral elections.

Since he was elected into office last February, there have been specu­lations that the council boss, who is considered a close ally of the gover­nor, has been eyeing the Plateau Government House.

Only last week, Kungmi’s campaign posters for the governor­ship race flooded most parts of the state including Jos, the state capital.

But in a statement which he personally signed and made avail­able to reporters in Jos on Saturday, the council chairman said at no point did he disclose to anyone or group any intention to contest the governorship election of the state.

The chairman, who described the activities linking him to the gover­norship race as the handi­work of mischief makers, insisted that he will continue to remain fo­cused in the discharge of his constitutional duties as chairman of Mikang LGA.

While calling on the people to remain vigilant ahead of the 2015 elec­tions, Mr. Kungmi also urged them to contin­ue to support the redemp­tion administration of Governor Jang as it strives to impact meaningfully on the lives of the people.
