Former Plateau Governor Senator Jonah Jang has described the claim by former Niger Governor Babangida Aliyu that the then 19 northern Governors worked against the second term bid of former President Goodluck Jonathan as a blatant liar.
Jang said he was not part of the northern conspiracy against Jonathan’s reelection bid in 2015.
He said he supported Jonathan, knowing he was better equipped to govern Nigerian than President Muhammadu Buhari.https://frontend.1worldonline.com/widget/smart3-20a9d173.html#!/widget/be4020e2-f63d-4d37-83fb-c93bfcef3b16&type=widget&code=be4020e2-f63d-4d37-83fb-c93bfcef3b16&mode=smart3&token=be4020e2-f63d-4d37-83fb-c93bfcef3b16-1&location=https%3A%2F%2Fthenationonlineng.net%2Fi-didnt-work-against-jonathans-reelection-in-2015-jang-tackles-aliyu%2FADVERTISEMENT
Jang, in a statement by his Media Consultant, Clinton Garuba, said: “The attention of the immediate past governor of Plateau State, Senator Dr. Jonah David Jang has just be drawn to a statement credited to the past governor of Niger State where he alleged that the then 19 states Northern governors met, deliberated and all decided not to support the re-election of the then President Goodluck Jonathan in 2015 and wish to state categorically that Senator Dr. Jonah Jang was not part of that meeting.
“For the avoidance of doubt, despite the perceived shortcomings of President Goodluck Jonathan, Senator Jonah believed that president Jonathan was better equipped to rule Nigeria at the time, especially when his opponent was General Buhari who Jang did not hide his conviction concerning Buhari’s inabilities to resolve the Nation’s challenges and sensitivities of the issues at the moments.
