He also called on the Plateau State Governor Simon Bako Lalong to make good his campaign promises to the various communities in the state.

“Firstly, I want all to exercise some patient because all what we are seeing is the manifestation of the recession. This country has been on recession for a long period.
“We have been borrowing to pay salaries even before this government took over. We have been borrowing even at federal levels and states couldn’t pay and execute projects”.
