Plateau PDP agrees on deputy gov, backs useni

The Punch - - PHOTONEWS -

The cri­sis in the Peo­ples Demo­cratic Party in Plateau State over the choice of the deputy gov­er­nor­ship can­di­date seems to have been laid to rest with the party call­ing on all mem­bers to sup­port the choice of Dr James Dalok in the 2019 elec­tion.

ex­press­ing con­cern over the di­vided in­ter­ests among its mem­bers on the choice of Dalok by the gov­er­nor­ship can­di­date, Jeremiah Useni, lead­ers and stake­hold­ers of the PDP called on all to “for­give one an­other and work to­wards gen­uine rec­on­cil­i­a­tion, leave be­hind the past and work as­sid­u­ously to­wards win­ning the elec­tions in 2019 in the in­ter­est of Plateau State.”

This po­si­tion was con­tained in a com­mu­niqué signed by the Plateau State PDP Pub­lic­ity Sec­re­tary in Plateau State, John Akans, and is­sued at the end of the party’s state ex­ec­u­tive meet­ing in Jos on Satur­day.

The party lead­er­ship ap­pealed to mem­bers to “for­give one an­other for the sur­vival and progress of our dear state.”

The party also stressed the need to fos­ter unity, trust and wis­dom to “min­imise mis­takes and max­imise strength.

Akans said, “Stake­hold­ers in the party noted that the choice of a run­ning mate by our can­di­date, Sen­a­tor Jeremiah Useni, should not be al­lowed to di­vide the party be­cause all mem­bers will be treated fairly as we pre­pare to form the new gov­ern­ment in Plateau. mem­bers unan­i­mously stood in sup­port of the choice of Dalok as the deputy gov­er­nor­ship can­di­date in the 2019 elec­tion.”
