A member of the Integrity Group and former governor of Plateau State, Senator Jonah Jang, on Sunday, lambasted the Director-General of the All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council, Governor Simon Lalong, over his claim that the G-5 governors led by Nyesom Wike were supporting the party’s presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
Jang, who was reacting to the claim in a statement on Sunday, stated that Nigerians no longer took Lalong seriously.
According to the statement by his Media Consultant, Clinton Garuba, “Obvious sign that Lalong is daydreaming is him thinking that the G5 PDP governors and allies, including former governor Jang are supporting Tinubu.
“They have repeatedly said that they do not have personal problems with Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party, but with the process that brought him up.
“Yes, the integrity group has disagreements with the PDP and their withdrawal of support for Atiku’s campaign does not in any way suggest that they support the APC candidate. Only Lalong and his fellow dreamers think so.”
Recall that the aggrieved PDP governors Wike of Rivers State, Samuel Ortom (Benue), Ifeanyi Ugwanyi (Enugu), Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia) and Seyi Makinde (Oyo), have been at loggerheads with the party leadership over the zoning of the high-ranking positions.
