"We have lost a man of honour," Gov Lalong says as he mourns Senator Longjan


Plateau State Governor, Simon Lalong has expressed shock over the death of Senator Ignatius Longjan who died after a protracted illness.

A retired career diplomat and a former Chief of Staff to the former Governor of Plateau State Jonah Jang who was elected Senator in 2019 was a chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Party in Plateau State and Deputy Chairman, Senate Committee on Culture and Tourism before he died in Abuja hospital on Monday.

Governor Lalong, in a statement signed by his Director of Press and Public Affairs, Dr Makut Macham, on Monday described as devastating the death of the Senator who represented Plateau South Senatorial District at the National Assembly.

Lalong said the death of the elder statesman is a huge loss to not only his family, the people of Plateau South Senatorial District, but the entire state because of his immense contributions to the development of the State and the nation.


He said, “We have lost a man of honour and candour who in all his affairs always put the interests of Plateau State first. His humility, humanity and wealth of wisdom were always at the display when he weighed on any issue that concerns people. We will surely miss him.”
