Plateau LG Elections: Governor Simon Lalong Calls For Calm Over Results.

Plateau state Governor Simon Lalong has asked citizens of the state not to do anything that may affect the peace of the state.

Lalong said anyone who feels aggrieved over the result of the local government elections as announced by the Plateau State Independent Electoral Commission, PLASEIC should tow the democratic path by approaching the local government elections petition tribunal to ventilate his or her grievances.

The Governor in a message signed by state Information and Communication Commissioner, Yakubu Dati said the Local Government Election Appeals Tribunal were inaugurated even before the local government polls took place.

He said as a democrat, he can not  interfere in the work of PLASEIC being an independent institution. According to him "PLASEIC is headed by a credible leadership who are ready to make clarifications on the polls" adding that such  should be directed to the body and not the governor.

Governor Lalong assures citizens of his administration's commitment to peace,justice and fairness.

He said in any context, there must be a winner and loser and therefore ask winners to be magnanimous in victory while losers should be humble in defeat.
