Former Deputy Governor from 2011-2015 of plateau state who served with the then oldest Nigerian Governor who was involved in a misappropriation of Plateau State Fund Jonah Jang, Ignatius Longjan is said to she died today.
The Senator before his death was representing Plateau South Senatorial District. Known to never leave politics once they enter, Nigerian leaders will rather die in leadership position than step down and have a good retirement life while receiving medical attention.
This sort of unsuspected death has happened after a political campaign, after PDP lost to APC who happen to be in the current Governor of the state.
Longjan who was 75 years old, died in a Turkish hospital in Abuja after battling an undisclosed ailment. He was elected into office in 2019. May his soul rest in peace.
