A former Governor of Plateau State, Jonah Jang, has promised to mobilise two million votes from the state to ensure the victory of the Peoples Democratic Party’s presidential candidate, Alhaja Atiku Abubakar.
Jang spoke in Jos, the state capital, on Monday while addressing party supporters during the campaign rally for the northern senatorial zone of the state.
“Plateau is the PDP and the PDP is Plateau. We will make sure that we give Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the party’s presidential candidate, two million votes in the forthcoming election,” he said.
The former governor accused the All Progressives Congress-led Federal Government of taking the nation backward through its bad policies.
While expressing the belief that the PDP would win the presidential election, he urged the APC to be ready to accept defeat.
The PDP governorship candidate in the state, Jeremiah Useni, promised to end insecurity in the state if elected.
Useni said he would ensure that peace returns to all parts of the state to pave way for even development.
He added that his government would put in place modalities that would end the lingering farmers-herders’ clashes in the state.
He said, “I will end insecurity in in Plateau and ensure peace return to all parts of the state if I become governor, because nothing will work smoothly for us without security of lives and properties.
“We must stop the killings; we must do that to enable our farmers to go to their farms without fear of being killed.
“That way, we will have enough food to eat locally and even export, and that will also expand our revenue base.”
