In a post on his Facebook page, popular Nigerian novelist, Sam Omatseye, alleged that when Simon Lalong was asked to sign an empty sheet of paper, he refused because he knew the destiny of Plateau Safe was at stake. He stated that when Simon Lalong knew the consequences of his actions as a speaker of Plateau State, and he also had the interest of the people of Plateau State at heart.
He alleged that how can a speaker of the house of assembly of a particular State be asked to sign an empty sheet of paper when the consequences of his actions were notable. However, Omatseye strongly believes that Lalong’s action to request confirm his signature by himself rather than giving out a sample was wise of Lalong.
He said, “I said, look at this man. He said I should sign a plain sheet. For what? I’m still speaker of the House, ooo. I’m signing the destiny of Plateau State on a plain sheet for you? He said no, there were certain documents they wanted to verify. I said, bring those documents. If I am the one who signed, I would tell you I signed. If it’s my signature, I would tell you it’s my signature. But I cannot sign my specimen signature on plain paper. I don’t know what you want to do with the people of Plateau.”
What is your take on this matter?
