Residents of Jos North-North constituency of Plateau state have expressed their shock that President Muhammadu Buhari could not visit the area to commission Angwan Rogo and Rimi roads which are part of the giant stride in development of the Governor Simon Bako Lalong administration commissioned during the presidential visit

The member representing Jos North-North constituency in the State House of Assembly, Rt Hon Ibrahim Baba Hassan made this known to our correspondent at the Deputy Speaker Office at the House of Assembly on Friday.

Commending Governor Lalong for his tremendous achievements within his two years in office as the executive Governor of Plateau state, particularly the construction of  roads linking Ugwan Rogo communities and its environs that was abandon and neglected by the past regime, Hassan decried the situation that made it impossible for the President to visit the area.

He explained that it could have been “security reports that prevented the President from coming in contact with the most peace loving citizens who have contributed to the growth and development of  democracy in Nigeria”, but however applauded the contribution of the governor and his commissioners to the successful visit, particularly the Deputy Chief of Staff, Barr. Bala Bako ,the Executive Secretary Muslim Pilgrim Board, Barr Auwal, the Commissioner for Agriculture, Mallam Mohammed Nazif and Commissioner for Women Affairs, Mrs Anna Izam  respectively.

He lauded the All Progressive Congress APC for its developmental strife in Jos North local Government Area and the recent appointment of board Chairmen and members by Lalong government of change mantra.
