By Golok Nanmwa Jos

Plateau State Governor Simon Lalong at the weekend took his Campaign to represent the people of the Southern Senatorial Zone in the Senate to his kinsmen with an assurance that the APC will coast home to victory in all elections starting from the Presidential and national assembly on 25th February 2023.

The Governor while speaking at the Plateau Southern Zone Campaign rally in his stronghold of Shendam thanked the people for their support and collaboration over the years which has given him the confidence to serve not only the zone but the state and nation at large.

He said in Southern Zone, he doesn’t have a record of contesting and loosing any election which clearly shows that Tinubu and all the candidates of the APC will win in the forthcoming elections.

The Governor said his administration has paid back the people of the Southern Zone for their consistent support by executing various projects in the area which are a far departure from the neglect that the previous administration meted out on them.

He enumerated many projects such as roads, water, schools, hospitals among others that have been carried out in the zone by both the State and Federal Governments under the APC.

Lalong assured them that when elected as Senator with Asiwaju as President and Dr. Nentawe Yilwatda as Governor, the people of the zone will witness yet another round of bumper harvest of projects and programmes which have direct impact on their livelihoods.

He advised the people of the zone and the state to shun politicians who have nothing to offer but using religion and ethnicity to deceive the people in order to win.

He said his Rescue Administration has exposed such persons who also collaborate with some religious leaders to pretend that they are speaking for the people with the sole aim of deceit and propaganda.

Lalong prayed for the victory of Tinubu/Shettima, Dr. Nentawe Yilwatda, Chief John Dafaan, Rt. Hon Idris Wase and all APC candidates of the zone during the elections.

Deputy Speaker House of Representatives Idris Wase said the APC is a party of equity and justice with track record of performance which is evident from the collaboration between the Governor and APC Federal legislators to attract projects such as the Federal Medical Centre Wase, Federal Polytechnic Nyak, National Orthopedic Hospital, Jos, Nigerian Law School Jos Campus, Federal University of Education Pankshin among others.

Member Representing Pankshin, Kanke, Kanam Federal Constituency Yusuf Gagdi
expressed displeasure with what he described as disloyalty of some APC members who hold political appointments but have chosen to stay aloof from making tangible effort towards the success of APC.

He said he has gone round and seen all the developmental projects Governor Lalong has done in the southern zone and it will be devastating to find anyone from the Southern zone and Shendam who will not to vote for APC.

APC Gubernatorial candidate Dr Nentawe Yilwatda reiterated that the immediate task for the party is to elect Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as President and Governor Lalong as Senator with other candidates of the party to the National Assembly on 25th February.

This he said will usher in a thunderous victory during the Governorship and State Assembly elections in March.

He highlighted the turn around of Lagos which is attributed to Tinubu and stated that Tinubu has chosen Plateau son, Governor Lalong his DG Campaign which shows that Tinubu has great love for the people of Plateau and will give them a prominent place in his Government.

At the rally, decampees from NNPP were received led by the State Treasurer who said they were amongst the 6 people that were entrusted with the party but he and his people realized that the party was full of deceit. Other Decampees from PDP were also received.
