Ministerial Nominee: Ernest Dade's Distance Himself From A Letter Written To Mr President Against Tallen....

July 30,2019

Earnest Dades a renown gospel artist on the Plateau distanced himself from an open letter written to President Muhammadu Buhari protesting the ministerial nomination of Dame Pauline Tallen by Mr. President.
The said letter written by a group under the auspice Plateau Youth, Justice and Equity with Danjuma Maimako, Eli Ankala and Earnest Dades as signatories was carried by Viewpoint, an online media outlet titled  "AN OPEN LETTER TO PRESIDENT MUHAMMADU BUHARI GCFR PRESIDENT AND COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF OF THE ARMED FORCES OF THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA: MINISTERIAL NOMINATION FROM PLATEAU STATE: WRONG POLITICAL MOVE AND ITS ATTENDANT CONSEQUENCES FOR THE FUTURE." The letter did not go down well with one of the alleged signatories, Earnest Dades of Muryar Gaskiya Gospel group.
Speaking to The Beacon on phone, Dades said he is ignorant of the said letter, and that nobody informed him about it. According to him he will never be a party to anything that will destabilize Plateau or bring rancor amongst the stakeholders of the state. He added Rt. Hon Simon Bako Lalong is his governor and he holds him in high esteem, likewise Letep Dabang the Plateau All Progressives Congress (APC) chairman and Dame Pauline Tallen who is a mother to him.
Dades further stated that he believes it's God that gave Tallen the  ministerial slot from Plateau and he has no problem with God's blessings on her. And that he is happy and celebrates her new appointment.
Giving his testimonies, he said when he was sacked from College of Arts and Remedial Studies Kurgwi as a staff, it was Tallen who restored him back to his job. Therefore he has no reason to protest against God's blessing on her. And that Governor  Lalong gave him his first political appointment and Letep Dabang was his gateway into politics. Thus, he holds them in high esteem.
Finally he calls on all who read the letter to take note that he is not part of the conspiracy, and that all citizens of Plateau should pray and support Tallen to succeed.

our administration recently signed into law the Plateau state Revenue  consolidation bill for the streaming and harmonization of all taxes ,rates ,levies and charges collectible by state MDAs and local government council to help build taxpayer confidence in tax administration and also create a conducive business atmosphere  .

I am aware that our revenue service has taken a giant stride in ensuring effective and efficient IGR ,this initiative will go a long way towards harnessing and collecting all revenue accruable to the state in line with our policies and programmes

APC Governor's Seek More Federal Appointments,As Reward For Electoral Investment For North Central Party Stakeholders....

July 28,2019

By Golok Nanmwa,Jos

Governors of the ALL PROGRESSIVES CONGRESS Party from the North-Central geo-political zone have made a passionate demand on President Muhammadu Buhari  to consider offering more higher measure of federal appointments to APC political stakeholders from the zone as reward for their huge electoral investments before and during the February 2019 General and Presidential polls.

According to them, this exceptionally considerate demand on the President, Commander-In-Chief of the Armed  Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, will act as positive motivational incentives to spur APC party faithful from the zone, in sustaining their loyalty, commitment and solidarity towards the ethos, ideals, values and norms of the party in good governance.

This is even as they said these motivational traits, will further spur APC  party members in future democratic exercises that can make the party stronger, cohesive and collectively united at ward, local Government, State and Federal levels in line with the philosophy of the party.

The APC Executive Governors who spoke through their colleague, the Executive Governor of Plateau State, Rt. Hon. Simon Bako Lalong, who also doubles as the Chairman of the Northern Governor’s Forum, expressed these views in Abuja at the weekend.

The APC Governors, whose position were unanimously endorsed by all elected representatives at both state and federal Assemblies, political appointees, National, State, Local Government and Ward Officers, alongside members of the party from the zone, such an institutional policy option by President Muhammadu Buhari, will also encourage party members to strive harder to maintain the hold the party presently enjoys nationwide, considering that these will help consolidate the fortunes of APC as a ruling party ahead of the 2023 polls.

 A statement signed by Solomon John Gujor,deputy Director, Press and  Public Affairs to Governor Lalong and made available to newsmen in Jos reads that
the Governors used the instance of the one day political interests-aggregation drive which took place at the Abuja Nicon Luxury Hotel , to re-affirm their collective loyalty profiles, commitment and unflinching support to President Muhammadu Buhari’s Plans-On-Action for development administration of Nigeria.

The meeting which had the Executive Governors of Nasarawa, Niger, Kogi and Plateau, States, present alongside the Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, National Publicity Secretary of the party, Vice Chairman North-Central and significant others, was emphatic on the need for more political appointment slots for the zone , as in the reckoning of the conveners, not everybody in the party will be nominated for ministerial positions, thanking the President for the expanded ministerial team which had been screened by the Senate.

While urging all those who won elections into various positions of the zonal party structures to see their different platforms of primary assignments as a call to national service, the Governors appealed to them not to indulge in behavioral conducts that will tarnish the corporate image of both the party and the present administration in the country.
