Press Release
29 th May, 2019

As today marks another milestone in Nigeria’s journey to a more stable and prosperous democracy,
Mr. Alfred Dapal, felicitates with his Excellency Gov. Simon Bako Lalong on the occasion of his
inauguration to steer the affairs of our dear State for the next four years. In a statement by his
media aide Satmak Dapar and made available to journalists in Jos, Mr Dapal wishes him a fruitful
Your election reflects the wishes and aspirations of an overwhelming majority. Consequently, I
encourage you to be moved by this show of solidarity and trust reposed in you by reeling out
programs, policies and development projects that have direct bearing on the lives of our people so
the impact of governance could be felt in a greater dimension because “to whom much is given,
much is expected.”
It is a truism that the primary purpose of leadership is service to humanity and one’s nation. You
were elected by Plateau people because majority believe in your passion and drive to render
exceptional leadership services in order to make Plateau state better. This ought to be done for the
sake of conscience and posterity. Politics is over. The time for true governance is at hand. Personally, I believe that our unity of purpose, shared humanity and collective efforts can
go a long way in renewing the struggle for a better Plateau.
I further urge his Excellency Gov. Lalong to re-calibrate more efforts in improving the security of lives
and property. In the same token, the “ease of doing business” policy of federal Government should
be embraced in totality as it is a potential catalyst for self-sustenance for us on the Plateau.
Completion of the Lalong legacy projects across the 3 Senatorial zones remain critical in ushering a
sustainable era of hope, dignity and pride in line with APC’s vision. I also urge that education should
be given paramount attention because it cannot be ruled out in the equation for sustainable
development. When the people are educated and well informed, they will better appreciate and
maximize their roles in nation-building.
I’m a true believer in the Plateau project and my solidarity is unbreakable. We will continue to make
our efforts count in building a better future for generations yet unborn.
May I at this juncture, condemn in the strongest possible terms the unrest that erupted in parts of Jos with an attendant consequence on Sunday the 26th of May 2019. According to reports, about 6 people lost their lives. I call on the good people of Plateau state to give peace a chance. The government on the other hand should do everything in its power to safeguard lives and properties. It pays to build peaceful and inclusive societies.

In conclusion, I congratulate you once more and wish you a prosperous time in office.
Long live Plateau state and
Long live the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
