The Nigerian Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Solomon Dalung, has reacted to comments made by the Chairman of the Plateau state chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Latep Dabang, who described him as a lunatic.
Daily Post reports that the Plateau APC Chairman had in a recent interview described the Minister as a lunatic who is working against the party in the state.
In reaction to the statement, Solomon Dalung in a personal message thanked the Plateau APC Chairman “for speaking your minds even though uninformed about the facts.
“Let me appreciate the chairman of my party, Latep Dabang, for referring to me as a mad man. Of course he is free to his opinions but certainly not correct too.
“I am of a sound mind because mad people do not possess capacities to raise weighty issues.:
Noting that the Plateau APC Chairman is frustrated, Dalung noted, “I can understand the problems confronting my friend and brother, Latep Dabang. His mentor has left the party, so things are falling apart, the centre can no longer hold.”
