“I do not discriminate in allocation of development projects,” says Jang

In the continuation of his tour of the three senatorial districts to inspect projects initiated by his administration, Plateau State Governor Jonah Jang has denied allegations in some quarters that his government is discriminating against some parts of the state in the allocation of development projects.
Jang, who started his inspection of projects of the three senatorial zones, after he resumed the tour, yesterday, refuted insinuations that development projects are only concentrated in the northern zone of the state especially Du District where he comes from. He repeated this assertion in any senatorial district he visited.
According to him, “As you can see, the noise has been that I am only developing the northern senatorial zone but you can see what is going on all over the state. I think people should give credit to where credit should be given rather than just going to the press to say what they want to say. I am happy the press is along with us. The press, anytime you want to go round the state, let me know, we would arrange for you people to visit every project in the state.”
He expressed joy that ASTC in the southern zone situated in Shendam had been completed with work expected to start today. He urged farmers to avail themselves of the facilities at the centre.
Earlier at the Plateau State Polytechnic permanent site, the governor inspected facilities and addressed some of the students he met in the school. He told the students that his administration would do everything possible to ensure that tertiary institution currently on strike resume, pointing out that his administration has the future of the students at heart.
Jang thereafter directed that an additional female hostel be built while the existing one be renovated including the male hostel which size is to be expanded to accommodate more students.
He also visited the Jibam Bridge where he directed that an additional bridge be built to ease passage of  both pedestrians and vehicles. He equally inspected road projects within Kwa in Quaan Pan local council including the Doemak to Dwali road with an extension to Lardang.
At the popular Total Bridge in Shendam which was affected by last year flood which is being handled by FEMA, Jang promised to make a case for the payment of the contractor handling the work as he was told that the contractor embarked on the job without mobilisation fee.
