Viewpointnigeria: Exclusive interview with Mr Dan Manjang, former Special Adviser on Media to Governor Jang.

Can you introduce yourself to our audience?

 

My name is Dan Manjang, I was born 52 years ago in 1961 and I have worked mostly within the Church cycle and as a Journalist. I worked in the Nigerian Standard for some years and participated in the translation of the Old Testament to the Berom language. I also studied classical and modern Hebrew at the Hebrew University in Israel and I speak them fluently.

 

In 2008, Governor Jang appointed me as his Special Advise on media and public affairs. I later left to this position to contest the House of Representatives seat, which I unfortunately lost at the primaries. I was not invited back to the Government but the late Senator Gyang Dantong invited me to work with him as his Senior Legislative Aid for about a year before he died.

 

Tell us about the person of Senator Gyang Dantong and his achievements as a senator.

 

Whatever I say about this fine gentleman will be an understatement. I first met him as a young man when we went for our National Youth Service (NYSC) at Akwa Ibom State. He later worked as a Medical Doctor at the Vom Christian Hospital where he was committed to helping poor patient’s who could not afford to pay their medical bills. In 2001, after becoming a Senator he still carried out operations on his patient’s in the same hospital for free. 

While serving as a Senator, he electrified the whole of Pengana chiefdom as a constituency project. There is no ward in the Jos-North constituency that he has not sunk a borehole. He has completed many Primary Care facilities in Zandi, Fan, Bachit and Bisichi. He started the electrification of Riyom local government from Rim through Hoss, to Sok, in Bachit. He also made a lot of impact on the
