Plateau State Governor, Simon Lalong has hailed ex-Minister, Pauline Tallen for rejecting her nomination for an ambassadorial role by President Muhammadu Buhari.

In a recent report, Gov Lalong described Tallen’s refusal of the nomination as an exhibition of political maturity.

Lalong said: “Plateau is always on the front-burner when it comes to politics, that shows her maturity not just in Plateau but as a national figure.

“Once things are not done properly, it is better for a leader and a mother to come out and say that things are not done properly in the interest of the state.
