La­long will face cred­i­ble op­po­si­tion - Rep

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Hir Joseph, Jos

Rep. Ti­mothy Golu, rep­re­sent­ing Pankshin/ Kanke/Kanam in the House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives, has said that the Peo­ples Demo­cratic Party (PDP) in Plateau State will pro­vide cred­i­ble op­po­si­tion against Gover­nor Si­mon La­long.

“The PDP will not build pro­pa­ganda like the All Pro­gres­sives Congress (APC) did when we gov­erned Plateau. We will not just rise up with op­po­si­tion against the cur­rent gov­ern­ment on the Plateau be­cause we are not in power to­day. We are a re­spon­si­ble op­po­si­tion party that will take stock on the gov­ern­ment first, be­fore speak­ing out,” Rep. Golu said.

The law­maker said the PDP op­po­si­tion would be geared to­ward strength­en­ing the sys­tem and bring­ing about good gov­er­nance for the peo­ple, say­ing “it is not go­ing to be pro­pa­ganda just to blow hot air about party pol­i­tics.”

Rep. Golu, a jour­nal­ist, who first served as state law­maker be­fore go­ing to the Na­tional Assem­bly, said there was no di­rec­tion in the first 100 days of Gover­nor La­long.

He, how­ever, said that the party would make com­ments at the ap­pro­pri­ate time, not­ing that it is too early to give a thor­ough as­sess­ment.

“By his first 100 days, the APC ad­min­is­tra­tion has no eco­nomic blue­print; no pol­icy di­rec­tion on which we can as­sess it,” Golu said.
