The chairman of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Plateau state chapter, Latep Dabang said the sports minister, Solomon Dalung who hails from the state, has never attended any function of the party since he was appointed minister.
Premium Times reports that Dabang made this known Monday, May 21 at the party secretariat in Jos, during a press conference where he briefed journalists on the activities of the party.
Dabang said: “The minister of youth and sport development, Barrister Solomon Dalung, has never attended any of our meetings since he was appointed minister in spite of several invitations to our meetings.
“During the ward congresses, the minister was in Daura, in Kastina state. If the president of the country, President Buhari, can go to his party ward to participate in the congresses, I wonder what the minister was doing in the country home of the president.”
The APC chairman also said the minister did not attend the just concluded state congress of the party held last Saturday in Jos.
