Few hours to the conduct of Governorship and State Houses of Assembly, the Plateau State Chapter of the People’s Democratic Party PDP under the leadership of Senator General Jeremiah Timbut Useini the 2019 PDP Governorship Candidate has endorsed the candidature of the All Progressive Congress APC candidate Dr. Nentawe G. Yilwada and call all their supporters to massively vote the APC on Saturday 18, March, 2023.
The group in a press statement made available to News Parrot Newspaper and online and was signed by EMMANUEL MACHAM JP Spokesman PDP Plateau State under the leadership of Sen Jeremiah Useini stated as follows:
Considering the forthcoming gubernatorial and State Houses of Assembly elections which is coming up in few hours from now, I have been directed by the critical stakeholders of the PDP Plateau State and under the able leadership of Sen Jeremiah Useini to address the press on certain far reaching decisions that have been taken in the best of Plateau state.
The stakeholders considered the prolonged legal tussles and landmark judgments by the court against the PDP and non-compliance with valid court judgments, we have come to the conclusion that we cannot continue to risk our future and that of our teeming supporters by keeping them in limbo. In arriving at this decision, we considered also the inconclusive and fail negotiations between interest groups within the PDP in Plateau State.
After carefully studying the political reality and the need to have a very proactive, focused and responsive government in Plateau State,the leaders and critical stakeholders of the PDP Plateau State under the leadership of Sen Jeremiah Useini have unanimously endorsed Dr Nentawe Yilwatda Gotshe, the gubernatorial candidate of the APC as the next governor of Plateau State come Saturday 18th March 2023. Accordingly, we wish to inform our teeming supporters across the state to cast their votes for him accordingly.
In arriving at this decision, we believe that the future of Plateau state requires intelligent and very accommodative leadership that will unite our people who have been bitterly divided across ethnic, religious and other primordial lines.
Accordingly, all our youth and women groups as well as other stakeholders are enjoined to cast their votes for Dr Nentawe Yilwatda Goshwe and conduct themselves peacefully throughout the period of voting and indeed there after.
