Plateau State Governor, Simon Bako Lalong has expressed confidence that the All Progressives Congress (APC) party will win in the Governorship and State Assembly elections in the state.
The governor stated this on Tuesday in Jos, while addressing newsmen at the end of his inspection of some ongoing projects in the metropolis.
He said the party had done its ground works through its campaigns at different levels in the state and country, which led to its victory at the presidential polls.
“ By this time Sunday, APC will produce another governor in Plateau state,“ he said.
He expressed the hope that the newly elected governor would continue with the good works and projects his administration initiated, for the good of the state.
The governor also assured civil servants that he would not leave outstanding salaries before leaving office.
“ We have paid January, we are going to pay February and by the grace of God I will not miss any salary,“ he said.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), reports that the governor inspected ongoing works at the British-American Flyover and Dualisation to Lamingo Junction Roundabout.
Other projects inspected also were remodelling work at Plateau Specialist hospital, the new high court complex, the Plateau multi-door courtroom and the Nigerian Union of Journalists, Plateau Council secretariat.
He expressed satisfaction with the quality and level of work at the project sites, saying that President Muhammadu Buhari would be invited soon to inaugurate the projects.
“The president will come in two or three weeks to inaugurate these projects,” he said.
The inspected projects are critical to the development of the state and are arranged to include components of the administration and welfare of the state.
The projects selected cut across the judiciary, health, road infrastructure, and the press, which are key components of democracy.
He said he had given directives to ensure all necessary arrangements were made, to ensure the ongoing projects were completed.
He added that he would inspect their progress and all ongoing projects in the state, after the governorship elections.
He further explained that part of the ongoing project at the Plateau Specialist Hospital was the remodeling of some structures to accommodate the newly acquired ultra-modern hospital equipment.
He said that the equipment, which included Superstar MRI Machine, CT scanner, 4D Ultrasound Scanner and Digital X-Ray Machine among others, would cater for the health needs of Plateau people.
He said that the other projects such as the construction of the kalong bridge, and general hospitals at Mabudi, Kanke and Riyom were ready to be inaugurated, adding that he was committed to ensuring the Lalong legacy projects were also completed
