Breaking: Lalong Counts Losses, Says Properties Worth N75bn Gone In Plateau


Plateau State Governor Simon Lalong has said that public and private properties worth N75 billion were lost to the recent #EndSARS protests across the state.

The governor disclosed this on Friday at an interactive session with representatives of youths in the state, held at the Government House.

He said that “The level of destruction and carnage is unbelievable and unacceptable. We are still trying to carry out a comprehensive evaluation of the total cost of the damage.

“However, the preliminary report by a team of experts I constituted has estimated the losses to be put at about N75 billion for now.”

The governor, however, urged the youth to be patient, as their challenges cannot be resolved overnight.

“My dear youths, as a father and your governor, I feel your pain. My heart goes out to all our youth for the many challenges they face daily due to lack of opportunities for jobs and better conditions to achieve their dreams.

“This is a burden that has accumulated over time which our administration is working hard to address.
