Ahead of the 2019 elections, an immediate past Governor of Plateau State, Jonah Jang has declared an intention to contest for President.
NIGERIA NEWS gathered from reports that Jang promised “Nigerians that if he is elected President come 2019, his administration will ensure it brings an end to the cheapening of the lives of citizens.”
Jang equally said “the clamour for restructuring will be addressed in line with the provisions of the laws of the land.”
According to the Presidential hopeful, the dreams of the founders of Nigeria were “gigantic, the hopes were huge, but all of them were achievable”.
Jang said, “While we have come a long way, and we have made huge gains in different sectors, we have also suffered many distressing challenges in our nationhood. These distresses need not delay me here.”
“Today, Nigeria has increasingly become a deeply divided nation, and the bases for our unity are being eroded.”
“We face enormous security challenges emanating from the proliferation of small arms and light weapons, the increased wave of armed banditry leading to the annihilation of complete hitherto peaceful communities, armed communal clashes, religious fundamentalism, armed robbery, insurgency and unhindered kidnapping among others.”
“The ideals of the founding fathers of this nation are getting farther away from the people.”
