The All Pro­gres­sives Congress (APC) in Jos North and Bassa lo­cal gov­ern­ment ar­eas of Plateau State have faulted the com­po­si­tion of the stand­ing com­mit­tees in the House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tive as an­nounced by the Speaker, Yakubu Dog­ara.

In a state­ment is­sued in Jos and signed by their chair­men, YaKubu Has­san and Al­has­san Ayiki, the lo­cal chap­ters of the APC de­scribed Dog­ara’s shar­ing of the com­mit­tees, al­most on equal ba­sis with the op­po­si­tion Peo­ples Demo­cratic Party (PDP)as af­front to the APC.

The state­ment specif­i­cally de­cried at the for­mula that se­lected five chair­men of com­mit­tees from Plateau State, with APC get­ting one and PDP four,

“Jos North/Bassa Fed­eral con­stituency have the largest voter pop­u­la­tion in the state which was won by the APC. Five chair­man­ship slots were given to Plateau, four chair­men and one vice chair­man. To our great­est sur­prise, PDP got four while APC got one,” the state­ment said.
