Plateau State denies Sure-P funds misuse

16 June 2014, 13:12

Plateau - Senator representing Plateau North at the National Assembly, Gyang Pwajok, denied allegations linking the State Government to the misuse of the N50 million SURE-P funds.

He said Governor Jonah Jang was instead planning to use the money to the benefit of people in the state.

“When this project is unfolded all our critics will be shocked with the kind of developmental strides under the present administration,” said Pwajok.

He advised the people of plateau against the “voices of political mischief” who incited and caused hatred among the peace loving citizens of the state.

The senator called “some desperate members of the syndicate group” to desist from portraying the state in bad light as well as some politicians “whose stock in trade is seeking for power at all cost.”

He also counselled other spirited individual who did not have the extra patient of time to employ dialogue in resolving the bridges of conflict.

“People should understand that lies can travel round the world while the truth will be putting it boots to go after it,” he added.

Meanwhile, Pwajok commended the delegates to the national confab and appealed to them to give more priority to the issues that will sustain national sovereignty.

According to him, all the areas that the national confab delegates are deliberating upon will soon be sent to the national assembly which is a step in the right direction.

“We need to restructure some part of the constitution to help this country move forward,” he added.
