YOU ARE THE GREATEST ENEMY OF DEMOCRACY, GROUP LAMBAST JONAH JANG FORMER FORMER GOVERNOR OF PLATEAU STATE

 



"SHUT UP! YOU ARE THE GREATEST ENEMY OF DEMOCRACY IN THE HISTORY OF PLATEAU STATE"; GROUP LAMBASTS JONAH JANG OVER CRITICISM OF PLATEAU LG POLLS. 


We are appalled to read some offensive write up from a certain Clinton Garuba who claims to be speaking for former Governor of Plateau State Dara Jonah David Jang as a Media Consultant or (Kwan-sultant). In the shameless statement, h3 called the hugely peaceful, successful and court-sanctioned Local Government elections held today throughout the 17 Local Government areas of Plateau State as "show of shame, travesty of justice, cowardice and rape of democracy. 


We would have ignored this piece of trash as a "shure shure" (ranting) of a nonentity, rusty, jobless and shameless busy body, but because of the historical antecedents of the message and the messenger in the democratic history of Plateau State, we cannot allow it pass or fail to put the records straight. 


Let's begin with Dara Jonah Jang who is our elders statesman which we would have loved to accord the dignity he deserves if he had shut up his mouth about democracy in Plateau. His antecedents are very well known to even children who were not born during his reign of impunity where he was practically a bully, despot, dictator and bigot of the highest order. 


We find it preposterous that Baba Jang, as he is fondly called will have the effontry to issue a statement condemning an election that followed due process and survived rigorous scrutiny of the courts, including the second highest court in the land (Court of Appeal) even up to few hours before the opening of polls. 


This is the height of irresponsibility and rascality from an arrogant leader that forgets that he has had his time and history has judged him harshly as far as democracy and the rule of law is concerned in Plateau StateandNigeria at large. 


Does he think we have forgotten how he recklessly trampled on Court judgements that were validly delivered during his reign of impunity? Let us remind him about the following. 


1. The late Baba Amagon won election as Executive Chairman of Bokkos Local Government under ACN but the undemocratic dictator forcefully removed him when he came into office. Despite several court judgements mandating him to reinstate him, he refused blatantly. It took the intervention of his alma mater the Kuru Old Boys Association who reminded him that Baba Amagon was his Head Boy in Secondary school. He reluctantly swore him in after 2 wasted years. Baba Amagon died out of frustration and humiliation he suffered in the hands of Clinton Garuba's "hero of democracy" Jonah Jang.

2. Late Chief Hitler Dadi also won election as Executive Chairman of Langtang North Local Government under the same ACN but the same emperor Jang forcefully removed him and other validly elected Local Government Chairmen but he refused to reinstate them in despite several court orders. They fought and got tired and case could not be solved because Jang hated the opposition. It was the grace of God which brought in a true Democrat and emancipator, Rt. Hon. Simon Bako Lalong who ensured that some remedy was done to compensate them after they were destroyed by the dictator. 

3. What about the late Chief Dan Dul who also won election and was denied the seat completely by the same emperor Jang? He was also not sworn in despite several Court pronouncements. The emperor and enemy of democracy was at work. Guess who ensured he got some respite by swearing him in, Rt. Hon. Simon Bako Lalong. They will not tell you this one. Another case of a Professor who won the Chairmanship of Kanam LGA but got the same treatment is also there. They think we have forgotten. 

4. The same man issuing sentimental Press Statements all over the place decided to demonstrate the highest level of ethnic bigotry and arrogance by jettisoning the gentleman understanding on zoning when he insisted in bringing his brother from the almighty Du Kingdom to succeed him as Governor in 2015.
