The Plateau state Governor Simon Lalong has described the late senator V K Danging as an uncommon patriot whose only interest was fairness, equity and justice.

Governor Lalong in a condolence message to the Dangin Family, the Tarok nation and entire people of Plateau state recalled the deceased's  insistence on keeping the Plateau bond by respecting principles of togetherness and sharing of power by all parts of the state.

The message signed by state information and Communication Commissioner Yakubu Dati praised the late statesman  for his role in the Plateau Project which ensured Plateau people insisted on its power sharing arrangement irrespective of whose interest was affected.

The Governor regretted that the wise counsel of the late Dangin will be missed especially, at this time when the peace effort of the Rescue Team is yielding results and the people will soon be going for another decision at the polls.

The statement by Mr. Dati also conveyed Governor Lalong's condolences to the Yoruba Community in the state over the death of the Oba Yoruba of Jos, Chief Solomon Olugbodi.

Lalong described the Yoruba leader as a peace builder and entrepreneur who has contributed much to the social and economic development of the state.

He said the death of Oba Olugbodi has left a vacuum that will be difficult to fill in promoting Community relations and the peace architecture of the state government.
