Jang: "I Will Leave Office As Nigeria’s Poorest Governor by lalasticlala(m): 11:57pm On May 24, 2015
The Plateau State Governor and factional Chairman of the Nigerian Governors Forum, Jonah David Jang, has said he will be leaving office as the poorest governor in Nigeria.

Jang said this while speaking on Sunday at an interdenominational service to mark this year’s Democracy Day, which happens to be his last after eight years of stewardship in the state.

He challenged his critics to go check the records and prove otherwise, insisting his government is submitting a detailed handing over note, which copies he said he wished every Plateau State citizen has.

Jang, who made his last appearance in such a capacity, said he will be meeting for the first time face to face with his successor, Barrister Simon Baki Lalong, during the May 29 hand over.

He told the worshipers not to blame President Goodluck Jonathan for the woes of the country but rather the fall in oil price.

The Speaker of the state House of Assembly, Hon. Titus Ayuba Alams, apologized to workers of the state for the lack of payment of their salaries.

Alams said it was not intentionally done but was largely as a result of the dwindling income of the state government.The Plateau State Governor and factional Chairman of the Nigerian Governors Forum, Jonah David Jang, has said he will be leaving office as the poorest governor in Nigeria.

Prove that to me not by declaring your assets but by cursing yourself with Amadioha. Then I can confirm that you're the poorest.

Most likely true, if compared to other Governors. But he has become richer than before he was voted Governor of Plateau State. And his wife and second son now far richer than him(winks)

I guess the following Governors: Lucky Igbinedion, James Ibori, Gbenga Daniel and Jolly Nyame et al, governed their respective states under the umbrella of APC! We all know all the aforementioned former Governors are saints and have never gone to court for prosecution. Guy, pls stop taking that kinda weed.

He may be right but NO GOVERNOR IS POOR even after leaving office. They cant be the same as at when they ascend throne.
They have Life Salaries, fleets of cars, houses in choice places, swelling accounts etc. So, where does being poor set in.

I quite understand that he meant "among the out going governors".

But sincerely, the guy is telling us the truth. It's just that he didn't explain that his kind of poverty is the poverty of the mind and not of wordly riches.

A man who claims that 16 is bigger than 19 must be really poor...mentally.

If word on the street is anything to go by, then this man performed incredibly well compared to most of his colleagues. Save for the Governors Forum brouhaha, he conducted himself like true leader during his 8years in the saddle.

May he enjoy a peaceful retirement.

No governor of AD/AC/ACN came under the searchlight of EFCC. PDP is full of thieves. This same Jang lavished millions of naira in the name of producing customized spoons and fvcks for the Government House.
