Ministerial list: Spare Plateau of crisis, Mantu told

As opposition continues to build in the PDP against Governor Jonah Jang of Plateau State over ministerial list, former deputy senate president Ibrahim Mantu and former minister Minister of sports, Damishi Sango have been warned not to start another trouble which could end up consuming everyone in the state.

Pro- Jang group Unique Circle, while addressing a press conference in Jos, said people in the state are quite aware that the disagreement between the political heavy weights was borne out of selfish interest which they were using to whip up religious and ethnic sentiments, saying that their main objective is to weaken and subsequently destroy the relative peace and harmony not only in the PDP but in Plateau state and Nigeria at large.

Chairman of the group, Alex Anpe who addressed journalists said while those excluded from the list were creating a time bimb likely to expode due to their non-inclusion and see the appointment as Senator Mantu as minister as the only pre-condition for peace to reign on the Plareau, they have forgetten that people are now politically educated about their rights, dignity and honour so, “that nobody can cheat or deceive them and get away with it.”

He claimed that since the will of the detractors to get Jang to lose election on the basis that he hates Muslims failed and attempt to rig him out through importation of ballot papers during the primaries failed, they were now using other means to divert his attention from the urgent task of reconstruction, reconciliation and redemption, urging the governor to remain focused.
He advised all the elders of the party in the state to close ranks and ensure that peace reigns in the state and the programmes of the democratically elected government is realised.
