Dariye commends Jang for forgiving critics
Fo Former Governor of Plateau Sta State and senator representing Pla Plateau Central Zone in the Sen Senate, Chief Joshua Dariye, has commended Governor Jon Jonah Jang for discontinuing all cou court cases he instituted against ind individuals and organisations tha that allegedly questioned his int integrity.
S Senator Dariye, writing earlier in a goodwill message he released when Governor Jang turned 70 on the 13th of last month, had advised Jang to forgive all who wronged him as his own birthday present to his people for reaching the ripe age of 70 while still in office as their governor.
Not long after that advice from Dariye, Jang released a statement announcing that he had decided to withdraw all court cases he instituted against all persons and organisations, mostly media houses, that published items which he felt dented his image .
Senator Joshua Dariye said in a letter made available to newsmen yesterday in Jos that Jang’s decision to forgive all who wrote or said things that offended him, proved that the governor is a father of all. “The governor, by this singular act, has proved himself as a leader and elder statesman; he has also shown by the act that Plateau State and its interest is bigger than any individual or group in the State,” Dariy added.
He pledged his loyalty to Jang, saying, “On my part, you can continue to count on my support in order to take the state to greater heights and retain its enviable glory as home of peace and tourism.”
