The Former Governor of Plateau State, Jonah Jang, has knocked the Director-General Of The All-Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council, Governor Simon Lalong, over his claim that aggrieved opposition governors led by Nyesom Wike of rivers were supporting the party’s presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu.
Reacting to the claim in a statement through his media aide, Clinton Garuba, Jang stated that Nigerians no longer took anything coming from Lalong seriously.
He added that 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.
The statement read; “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.”
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 PDP leadership over the zoning of the party’s high-ranking positions.
