ENGR BUHARI AUWAL, APC CHIEFTAIN CONGRATULATES GOVERNOR LALONG ON HIS SWEARING IN TO OFFICE FOR A SECOND TERM May 30,2019 Today, the struggle we embarked upon to entrench the return of Governor Simon Lalong back to Government House, Little Rayfield for the second term climaxed with a swearing in and oath of office taking by the Governor to take Plateau State to the next level. Bewilderingly, the journey was rigorous and turbulent  as our opponents in the other side of the divide suffocated the political atmosphere with deceitful propaganda to paint the Governor black in the eyes of the electorates. But by the Grace of Almighty Allah, we refused to be cowed and brow beaten by their antics. We dispelled what they had to offer with issue based campaign. We traversed the length and breadth of the State and disabused the minds of those they indoctrinated to hate the Governor for no just cause and equally sold to them what the Governor had achieved in the rescue mission phase one and

May 29,2019 The Rt. Hon. Bar. Dr. Simon B. Lalong: The making of a Quintessential Leader Joseph Lengmang Director General PPBA Part I. Yesterday at the pre-inaugural dinner held in honor of His Excellency, Rt. Hon. Simon Bako Laong, I paid a particular attention to His Excellency’s remarks on the lessons he learnt from the leadership styles of his predecessors.  From J.D. Gomwalk, Chief. S. D. Lar, S. B. Atukum,  Fidelis Tapgun, Joshua Dariye and J.D. Jang, Lalong in his typical humorous fashion took us through an historical journey that not only provides a window into understanding his leadership style but offers deep insights on his persona, character and perhaps, how he would like to be remembered after leaving office in 2023. But I am not ready to delve into this discourse just yet.  This piece is about the beauty of today; the beautiful rainy day in which the inauguration of Rt. Hon. Simon Bako Lalong the duly re-elected governor of Plateau state will take the oat
