Simon LalongThe Plateau State chapter of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has accused Governor Simon Lalong of abandoning his constitutional duties and taking up a new role as a religious leader to lead the state into prayer and fasting sessions.

“The governor is sending wrong signals that he has abandoned his constitutional duties, and he is now taking up new roles as pastor/imam of Plateau”, the PDP said.

It claimed the governor introduced religious worship in government offices to divert the peoples’ attention from his lack of vision and failures in administering the state.

The party, which was reacting to a directive by Mr. Lalong declaring every Friday of the week a day of prayer and fasting in government offices, described the governor’s action as the height of hypocrisy.

The opposition party, in a statement by its spokesperson, Mr. John Akans, on Monday in Jos, the state capital, said: “This is hypocrisy; the governor should be godly by leading by example especially in areas of transparency and accountability; and there will be good governance from where Plateau will develop”.

“He should not declare official sessions for prayers and fasting in government offices; instead, he should lead by utilizing the funds accruing to the state from various sources including the federal accounts, internal revenue base, and grants to meet the development aspirations of God’s children in Plateau”, Akans added.
