The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Plateau State chapter is alerting the people on the unexplained and secret business transaction going on between Governor Lalong and the Jaiz bank over plans to hand over the Jos Terminus Main Market to the bank.

A statement signed by John Akans,
State Publicity Secretary,
PDP Plateau reads that the party has it on good authority that the state government has reached an advanced stage in its plan to sign a Memorandum of Understanding, MOU with JAIZ bank (a commercial bank) next month August 2022 with the view to handing over the entire market to the said bank to run for forty years at the cost of ten(10)billion naira.

This is coming just shortly after the Governor informed Plateau citizens that over #4billion naira has been spent by his government on the same main market
without giving account of how it was expended.

Akans further added that We dire ask why Lalong is rushing to sign an MOU of #10 billion at the expiration of his tenure and what happens to the #4 billion already spent on the same project?

Lalong should explain to Plateau people the logic in mortgaging a market with a fiscal multiplier effect in the state income that will benefit the citizens for #10 billion naira lease for forty (40) years, while founding flyover bridge at the cost of #18 billion, what is the ratio?

It has also come to our notice that Lalong and his allies are as well making moves to convert public properties in the State to private ownership and further loot the state finances ahead of the 2023 general election.
It is very disheartening and sad that instead of Lalong to use his remaining few months in office to do something meaningful and people oriented, he has chosen to continue with his reckless and fraudulent posture of looting the state.
