From Gyang Bere, Jos
Former Governor of Plateau State and Senator representing Plateau North, Dr. Jonah David Jang, has raised the alarm over alleged plot to invade his house by Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) in search of looted funds.
Sen. Jang, who claimed he had no looted fund in his house, however, warned that anybody who break into his house would repair any damaged part of it.
Jang made the revelations, on Thursday, during a Town Hall meeting with his constituents in Jos South Local Government Area and commissioning of projects across the Northern Senatorial Districts.
“Somebody came to my house and told me that there is plan to raid the houses of all former PDP Governors. My house is very open for them to come and search, but I want to say this to the hearing of the public, if anybody break my house, they will hear us up to supreme court.
“You cannot break my house and go free, you must come and repair it, if they think I hide money in the ceiling or anywhere, they should have equipment that can tress the money, but if they come to start breaking walls, they will repair my house because they will not find a kobo, I didn’t steal money.”
Jang alleges that his successor, Governor Simon Lalong vowed to take him to jail for corruption but he will not find him guilty of any financial mess that will land him in prison.
“Lalong is investigating my Government to make sure he jail me, they have investigated and did not found anything, they have gone to EFCC nothing, they have gone to ICPC nothing, they are still back to EFCC again.”
He explained that the money he expended on road construction and other infrastructural development across the state is far more than what he accessed from Federation Allocation in eight years.
“Former President Goodluck Jonathan had asked me where I got money to execute projects across the state but my pains is that the present government is not asking this question, they are only interested in swelling my name but what I did in eight years will vindicate me.” He stated.
