The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has invited former Plateau State Governor, Jonah Jang to appear before it for questioning.
Jang is said to have been invited by the EFCC based on petitions by the Plateau State Government.
“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,” Jang’s senior legislative aide, Olivia Dazyam said confirming the invitation.
“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.
She also said that Jang would appear before the EFCC today, January 14, 2016.
