My Being In Prison Is Divinely Ordained, I’m Sleeping In Same Bed Obasanjo Slept – Ex Plateau Gov.

The immediate past governor of Plateau State and Senator representing Plateau North, Jonah Jang has stated that his being in prison is divinely ordained, stressing that nobody should boast of sending him to prison.

Jang stated this in a goodwill message through his former Commissioner of Information and Communication Yiljap Abraham, at the ongoing 94th General Church Council of Church of Christ in Nations (COCIN) in Jos, the Plateau state capital.

Yiljap, who read out Senator Jang’s message, said, “For me being in the prison is a great lesson in humility, when I was at the EFCC Abuja I slept on the floor, but here in the prison I have the privilege of sleeping in the same bed that former President Olusegun Obasanjo slept when in Jos Prison”.

Jang and one Yusuf Pam are to appear before a Jos High Court on Thursday (May 24, 2018) as they seek bail over an alleged fraud case filed against them by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) said to have been committed while the former was governor.

The anti-graft agency had filed a 12-count charge against Jang and Pam, which include misappropriation of monies disbursed by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) meant for prospective beneficiaries of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprise Development Fund (MSMEDF), dishonestly diverting and misappropriating “certain property” summing up to various amount of money.

The said offences, according to the charges, are punishable under section 309 of the Penal Code Law of Northern Nigeria applicable to Plateau State.

It would be recalled that a Jos High Court had ordered that the two aforementioned persons be remanded at the Jos Prison, pending the determination of their bail application on Thursday, 24th, May, 2018.

Meanwhile, speaking shortly after Jang’s message, Governor Simon Lalong said himself was at one point a visitor to the prison and had spent 40 days during which he received a lot of revelations from God.

Lalong said, “Before I became the Governor of Plateau State, as a Speaker of the State House of Assembly then I also slept for 40 days in the prison, and when I was there I received a lot of revelations and by that time I was ready to face the allegations against me and I was clear at the end of the day”.

“Now as a Governor I know when I vacate the office there will be a time for me to account for my stewardship, but when somebody refused to humble himself to accept his imperfection, then the law takes it over”.

The Governor urged the church leadership to pray for his administration as well as unite the state to stand for justice, saying he views the church leaders as partners in the formulation of policies of government.
