The All Progressives Congress (APC) has mourned federal lawmakers representing Plateau South Senatorial District, Senator Ignatius Longjan who died at 75 years old in Turkish Hospital on Sunday.
The former senator was the Vice Chairman, Senate Committee on Culture and Tourism and a former Deputy Governor of Plateau State.
The National Publicity Secretary, APC, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu in a statement on Monday said, “The late Senator was a grassroots politician and progressive federal lawmaker who advocated for a smooth working relationship between the executive and legislature as a way of ensuring good governance and proper initiation and implementation of policies that impact positively on the people.
“He was a loyal party man who championed party supremacy over personal interest in all party matters and decisions, as displayed in the emergence of the leadership of the current 9th National Assembly.
“We extend our condolences to Senator Longjan’s immediate family, constituents, the National Assembly, the government and entire people of Plateau State.
“May the Almighty God grant all comfort during this time of grief and may the soul of Senator Longjan rest in peace.”
