The ruling Peoples Democratic Party ,PDP has described the election of Gyang Pwajok and Mrs Kaneng Fulani in last weekend’s Senatorial and State Assembly bye-elections in Plateau State as not only a reaffirmation that Plateau State is an impregnable fort for the PDP but a deserving tribute to the memory of the late occupants of the two positions who met their untimely death in quest for peace in the state.
“The victory of our great Party in the last weekend’s Senatorial and State Assembly bye elections to fill the vacancies created by the death of Senator Dantong Gyang Daylop and Hon. Gyang Fulani is instructive primarily in two respects. It reaffirmed that Plateau State is home to the PDP. Besides, no epitaph could be more evergreen to the memory of these Nigerians than this victory which our great Party is dedicating to peace on the Plateau. This is a cause, they labored and died for.”
In a statement by the National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Chief Olisa Metuh, the Party congratulated the Senator elect for Plateau North, Gyang Pwajok and State Assembly member elect for Barkin Ladi Constituency, Kaneng Fulani and the entire members of the PDP in the state for the victory and urged them to continue to stand firm as true representatives of their people and in supporting every effort towards the realization of the party’s electoral promises.
“The urgent task before you is to remain faithful to the manifesto of our great party in discharging your legislative functions. The banner of our party must fly higher in the province of fulfillment for the majority of the people whose trust and confidence we must not betray”, the statement concluded.
