Lanlong, Suspended Immigration Boss In Villa To Beg Buhari

The Plateau State Governor, Mr. Simon
Lanlong, earlier today was at the Aso Villa
with the suspended Comptroller-General of
the Nigerian Immigration Service, David
Paradang, to beg President Muhammadu
The Plateau state born Paradang was
suspended from office on Friday, August 21,
for embarking on illegal recruitment
exercise for the service. The Punch reports
that governor arrived the Presidential Villa
with Paradang but did not meet the
President with him. While Lanlong made his
way to the President’s office to meet Buhari,
the suspended NIS boss who wore a blue
kaftan waited patiently at the waiting room
opposite the Council Chambers. Paradang however decided to join the
governor as he stepped out of the
president’s office but when he noticed that
the governor wanted to address journalists,
he quickly stepped aside. He also denied
photojournalists from taking his
photograph alongside the governor.
Lanlong later told State House
correspondents that Paradang’s issue was
one of the matters he discussed with
He said, “I came to see the President on
some issues affecting my state. I feel
comfortable with the response I got and
that is why I am smiling. “I told him (the
President) what we are doing on insecurity
in our state. “Also, we discussed the
prevailing issue of the suspension of the
Comptroller-General of Immigration who
incidentally is from my state. “When you
have issues like this in a political period, you
must find ways of looking for reasons. If
anything affects any part of your body, you
must show concern.” Talking about the outcome of his discussion
with the President on Paradang’s
suspension, the governor said the case was
still under investigation.
“Paradang’s case is still under investigation.
A man was suspended and he is from
Plateau State, it is my concern because I am
the governor of the state. “For every
appointment, we must show concern no
matter how small. The President is handling
it. At the end of the day, whatever is the
outcome, I will agree with it, but I also need
to get some explanation as the governor of
the state,” he said
“We still have cases of cattle rustling and
farm destruction going on in the southern
part, but in the last one week, we have
taken very good measures and security
agencies are working very well in terms of
arrest,” he added.
Meanwhile, there is currently a verbal feud
begun between a former vice president,
Atiku Abubakar and El-Rufai
, over the controversial sale of the Nigerian
Telecommunications Limited (NITEL).
