Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Lami Sadiq, Jos

The Plateau State Youth Coun­cil (PYC) has said it will sup­port cred­i­ble youths in the up­com­ing lo­cal gov­ern­ment elec­tion.

Chair­man of the coun­cil, Dr. Fabong Jem­chang Yil­dam, at the week­end, told jour­nal­ists that the coun­cil would en­cour­age youths to con­test in the elec­tion and stand be­hind those who demon­strated the qual­ity to de­liver ir­re­spec­tive of their po­lit­i­cal par­ties.

Gover­nor Si­mon Bako La­long had last week signed the Plateau State In­de­pen­dent Elec­toral Com­mis­sion (PLASIEC) bill into law, and gave the com­mis­sion the go ahead to con­duct lo­cal gov­ern­ment elec­tion.

PLASEIC had hinted that elec­tions into the third tier of gov­ern­ment would be con­ducted be­fore the end of the year.
