The Plateau State Government has dismissed media reports that Governor Jonah Jang is being probed by the State House of Assembly over alleged missing N5billion Subsidy Re-investment Programme (SURE-P) fund of the state.

In a statement, Commissioner for Information and Communication, Mr. Yiljap Abraham, said the reports were sensational and faulty in interpretation.

According to him, records declares that:  'Jang is surely not under any form of investigation or 'probe' by the legislature either in connection with the Subsidy Re-Investment Programme or any other aspect of governance. The state's share of SURE-P accrual from the Federation Account is not missing, diverted or misappropriated.
