Information making the rounds has it  that Hon ID Gyang, as member of the Constitution Review Committee of the National Assembly voted against the "NOT TOO YOUNG TO RUN BILL" at the meeting of the Committee in Lagos.

The architects and masterminds of the vile post on social media are not even aware that no such bill was tabled before the Committee at the Lagos meeting under reference.

It will take only those who do not know Hon ID Gyang and those that may have not been on the  Plateau  in the past three decades for such fallacious mischief to fly.

The ID Gyang we know has a precedence and pedigree. His antecedents and passion for youths on the Plateau is next to no other with  evidential, undeniable and verifiable proofs that speaks volumes and cannot be wished away.

Indeed, ID Gyang is a leading voice  that has shown passion and blended very well with the youth on the Plateau.

He was been a noiseless youth activist, an official in the Plateau Youth Council, active participant of the LARGER HOUSE even before Nasarawa State was carved out of Plateau State.

He has been and is still a friend, close associate and ally of National Association of Plateau State Students, (NAPSS), the Natiobal Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), Christian and Muslim Youth Groups, Cultural and Ethnic Youth Groups, etc.

We challenge any one to show proof to the contrary.

Moreover, Hon ID Gyang has been gallanded by over 30 Youth and Student groups by way of Awards and  Commendations in recognition of his outstanding youth and students related services and activities.

This cheap ploy to misrepresent and discredit ID Gyang cannot and will not attract the desired political capital for those that masterminded such mendacious falsehood.

It is rather unfortunate that desperate politicians, threatened by the rising profile and pedigree of ID Gyang will  resort to the infamous "Pull Him Down" syndrome.

Let it however be sounded loud and clear that all attempts to label and stigmatize ID Gyang, a youth friendly  and  vibrant legislator of national acclaim will inevitably fail!

 Let it be known that ID Gyang has mentored and is mentoring many youths across the Plateau who look up to him as a mentor and role model. 

We therefore challenge anyone to show proof that the NOT TOO YOUNG TO RUN BILL was deliberated upon at the Lagos meeting.

How could Hon ID Gyang have voted against the "Not too Young to Run Bill" that was not a subject of deliberation at the Constitution Review Committee meeting as alleged? It is simply a fraud and plain mischief!

We therefore take this false and misguided post as the hand work of desperate political opponents of Hon ID Gyang who, being intimidated and terrified ahead of 2019, hope to gain some leverage by this crude approach!

We use this opportunity to serve them notice that 2019 is in the hands of God and IN GOD WE TRUST.
Hon ID Gyang is God's project and so shall it be!

TO GOD BE THE GLORY, AMEN!
