Plateau South 2023: There’s no rift between myself, Gov. Lalong – Sen Daduut


Ahead of the upcoming 2023 general elections, the Senator representing Plateau South Zone, Nora Daduut has denied media reports that she is seeking reelection.

She said she was never threatened to back down from the race, saying “I have never contemplated seeking reelection at any point in time”.

The Senator, who is from the same senatorial zone as Governor Simon Lalong, also debunked rumours of any rift between her and the governor.

Daduut disclosed this while briefing journalists in Jos, the Plateau State capital, to clarify rumours making the rounds that she was seeking reelection and that was why her convoy was attacked over three weeks ago.

She said, “I, Senator Nora Ladi Daduut want to emphatically stress that I have never contemplated seeking reelection at any point in time, nor endeavoured to procure a nomination/interest form for the Plateau South Senatorial District race.

“Secondly, I have never informed anyone that my life was threatened because of the senatorial seat I currently occupy.”

According to her, “What happened in Namu District of Quaan Pan LGA on the 28th April 2022, was an act of criminality by hoodlums, dissident enemies of progress and detractors protesting the arrest of some suspected criminals and unfortunately, my entourage including that of the members of NUJ who went to cover my event got caught up in it.

“I want to use this medium to say that no rift whatsoever exists between me (Senator Nora Ladi Daduut), the Senator representing Plateau South and the State Governor, His Excellency, Simon Lalong.

“Governor Simon Lalong has been supportive and I do appreciate all his support thus far”, she maintained.

“Any rumour that I have been threatened by Governor Lalong is baseless, false and a mere blackmail which should be disregarded”, Daduut added.

The lawmaker urged the people of the zone to remain peaceful and continue to be their brother’s keeper.
