Personality clash seems to loom in Pleateau state as the minister of youth and sports, Solomon Dalung, has denied that there was a clash between his supporters and that of Governor Simon Lalong, in Shendam during the Christmas break.

Dalung said: “I read with serious concern, stories making the rounds about a purported clash between my supporters and those of the executive governor when I honoured him at a festival of Gemai ethnic group in Shendam. I was at a function with the governor and it not only went smoothly but was also very cordial. Fabricating such a story may be the handiwork of idle minds that benefit from crisis of political differences.”

The minister noted that he is not at war with Lalong who he explained that they are close friend. Dalung noted like every other governor in this present administration, has common challenge of fund couple with high debt profile adding that this has slowed down drastic change in the state.
