Gov. Simon Lalong of Plateau State says government should go after him should he leave office with traces of corruption.

Speaking at an interactive session with beneficiaries of the Federal Government's Social Investment Programmes in Jos, Lalong said he is determined to set a precedence for transparency in governance.

He said his administration will hunt down anyone who has siphoned state funds in the past.

The aim he said is to return the dues of the state for proper usage in line with democratic principles.

It is also to set the tone for future governmental operations where every governor must adhere to due process and eschew corruption, he said.
