Spread the love

A Jos High Court has dismissed a suit filed by former Plateau governor, Jonah Jang against Gov​ernor​ Simon Lalong​.

The suit was seeking to stop Lalong​ from releasing a White Paper on the report of a commission of inquiry ​that probed Jang’s 8-year tenure.

The commission, headed by Justice Stephen Adah, submitted its report in December 2016 and ​the governor promised to release a white paper on it.

​O​n Tuesday, Plateau Chief Judge, Justice Pius Damulak, ​said Jang’s application lacked merit .
​He declared that Jang, a senator representing Plateau North, had acted “hastily” since the content of the report had not been made public and acted upon.

“I so find that of all the 13 prayers put up by the Plaintiff, none is substantial.

“The state government, by the Act establishing the Judicial Commission of Inquiry, has the powers to set up the commission to investigate activities of present and past administrations.

“I hereby hold that the plaintiff was only speculative in his assertions. The case is hereby dismissed and struck out,’’ the judge ​ruled.

Justice Damulak ​also ordered Jang to pay the defendants N3.4 million
