The Plateau state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has slammed the Governor of Plateau state, Simon Lalong for declaring fasting and prayer in government offices every Friday.

The PDP, who accused Lalong of abandoning his job as Governor, called on him to focus on his constitutional duties.

The party also said Governor  is using the prayer and fasting to distract people from the fact that he has no vision.

According to the Plateau PDP Publicity Secretary, John Akans, “The governor is sending wrong signals. He has abandoned his constitutional duties, and he is now taking up new roles as pastor/imam of Plateau.

“He is introducing religious worship in government offices to divert our people’s attention from his lack of vision and failures in administering the state, to worship in government offices.

“This is hypocrisy; the governor should be godly by leading by example especially in areas of transparency and accountability; and there will be good governance from where Plateau will develop.”

“He should not declare official sessions for prayers and fasting in government offices; instead, he should lead by utilizing the funds accruing to the state from various sources including the federal accounts, internal revenue base, and grants to meet the development aspirations of God’s children in Plateau.”

Meanwhile, Governor Simon Lalong has pledged to create time and teach for at least one hour weekly as his contribution towards boosting education in Plateau state.
