Appeal Court Verdict: Useni should be resting at home-Lalong

Former Speaker Dogara and Gov. Lalong

Plateau State Governor, Mr Simon Lalong, on Friday mocked Peoples Democratic Party candidate, Lt-Gen Jerry Useni (retd), who contested the March governorship poll against him, saying that he (Useni) ought to be resting at home.

Lalong, who was responding to the Court of Appeal decision confirming him as the winner of the poll, stated that Useni’s daughter was his classmate in school.

The governor added that it was his classmate who should be contesting an election against him, not her father.

Lalong, who spoke with State House Correspondents at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, said it was unfortunate that he had to contest the election against someone who was his ‘father.’
