Pan and Goemai Youths clash at House of Assembly, Jos
Plateau State House of Assembly Tuesday saw the clash between Pan and Goemai youths following the list of commissioner-nominees (from Qua’an-Pan), which was submitted to the 24-member House in Jos by governor Simon Lalong.
The governor’s list was sent to the House and was addressed to the Speaker of the House, Peter Azi, who read the letter at the floor of the House, and said, “you will recall that the governor was accused by the people of the state that, since he was sworn-in, on May 29th, 2015, he has refused to bring commissioners on board to compliment the dividends of democracy.”
The youths accused the governor for trying to bring dictatorship and raised alarm following the name brought from Qua’an-Pan Local Government Council, which was a Goemai instead of a Pan member. This ‘anomaly’ made the youths to register their grievances.
The group called on the governor to reverse his decision or face stiff opposition over the name of the commissioner from Qua’an-Pan who is a Goemai.
