 RE: "Man Divorces Wife For Insisting on Voting For Buhari" is Fake News 25th January 2019 The Plateau state government wishes to draw the attention of the public and media organisations to disregard the story titled "Man Divorces Wife For Insisting on Voting For Buhari" The story is not only fake but a figment of the imagination of the author. Following the report, the government conducted a thorough investigation and discovered that no such incident took place in Kanam Local Government nor any part of Plateau state. The publication is meant to create sensation and tension in the polity aimed at creating confusion amongst the populace. President Buhari's supporter's are passionate Nigerians whose numbers is rising by the day and would stand by him no matter the circumstances because they believe and  trust in his quest to make the country better. The fake news is the handiwork of the opposition elements who are already scared of the massive

Buhari's Visit To Plateau And The Lalong Narrative....

Buhari’s visit to Plateau and the Lalong narrative- 20th January 2019 By Yakubu Dati Last Saturday’s visit to Plateau by President Muhammadu Buhari has emphasized the narrative brought about by Governor Simon Lalong on the Plateau. At the Rwang Pam stadium venue of the All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential rally, people did not care to know where the person standing next to them came from, they did not bother about their faith or ethnicity, all they cared about was that they were there for a common purpose; and in the process demonstrated that it was possible to achieve unity and the peaceful atmosphere for development. This narrative which is a deliberate policy of the Governor Lalong administration, is a departure from an inglorious past, where nepotism and tribalism ruled the day and where antagonism was elevated to a state policy. Part of the twist Governor Lalong’s intervention has brought to bear on the state is that Plateau can rise  above sentimen

That PMB Outing In Jos

That PMB Outing in Jos 20th January 2019 By Lawrence Audu It was thrilling. It was feverish. It was jam-packed. It roared and it surged. The chant of “Sai Baba” rented the atmosphere! These few words describe the reception President Muhammadu Buhari received in no other place than Jos, the capital of Plateau state and in Nigeria. It was indeed an elaborate reception for a man that has endeared himself to the people of the Plateau in ways too numerous to mention. Take it or leave it, President Muhammadu Buhari has indeed proved pundits wrong again as we march toward the presidential elections. I want to believe that those that hitherto expressed reservations on the goodwill the president enjoys in the North Central region would have a rethink. It took over 30 minutes for the president to alight from his vehicle as the waiting crowd busted into ecstasy as his convoy sauntered into the Rwang Pam stadium, venue of the campaign rally. The security agents batt
