Following petitions by the Plateau State Government, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has invited former Plateau State Governor, Jonah Jang to appear before it for questioning over alleged looted state funds.

Confirming the invitation, Senior legislative aide to Jang, Olivia Dazyam said, “Senator Jonah David Jang feels it a point of duty to inform his teeming supporters and constituents of the Plateau-North senatorial district, Plateau State, of his invitation by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

“This has become necessary owing to the fact that Sen. Jang owes it a duty, having meritoriously served as the governor of Plateau State for eight years, to clear any grey areas that may need further clarification in the course of his stewardship.

“As a two-time military governor and a democratically-elected governor for two terms of four years each, Sen. Jang will not create any encumbrances in order not to appear before the EFCC to give an account of his actions while in office,” she added.
