Mrs. Dantong and Privacy

The government of Plateau State under Rtd. Commodore Jonah David Jang has an outstanding position in the country as one that has given a lot of recognition to the women folks by conceding a reasonable number of political positions to them. Notably among these women is Mrs. Pauline Tallen who is the second most powerful person in the state by virtue of her position as the Deputy Governor of the state. She is the only woman with that status in the country presently and the first such woman in Northern Nigeria

If people troop into their houses, the implication is that it interferes with their privacy. Mrs. Gyang Dalyop Dantong whose spouse is the Senator representing Plateau North says the status of her husband as a senator makes him a busy person but it does not however, limit the time available for him and his family. Mrs. Dantong was at the ten-year anniversary celebration of Jumalyni Automobile Engineering Company at ITF Center of Excellence Bukuru Jos South where she donated one-hundred thousand naira on behalf of her husband.

Plateau Rural Internet Project is Stil On


Dan Manjang

Dan Manjang the Adviser to the Governor of Plateau on media and publicity has reacted to rumours that the Plateau State Government has suspended the Internet Project meant to connect the local government areas to the Internet via the Vsat.
Manjang said he was not aware of the project but he doubts if the government can suspend such a vital project. He said what should be happening now is the encouragement of government ministries and parastatals to develop websites and get connected to the Internet. He is of the opinion that the state government cannot suspend such a crucial project.
Dan Manfang was appointed belatedly into the administration of Governor Jonah Jang to serve as the adviser to the governor on media and public relations. Manjang holds a Masters Degree in Theology and was training pastors at the College of Education Gindiri before his appointment. This explains why the title of pastor sometimes precedes his names
