The Plateau State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has zoned the party’s governorship position to the Southern Senatorial District of the State.
These was part of the party’s resolutions at the end of its State Executive Committee (SEC) meeting held in Jos, the Plateau State Capital.
Addressing journalists, the Party’s Publicity Secretary in the State, John Akans, said, “After an exhaustive deliberation of issues on the agenda, SEC resolved that the party will organise a retreat for its executive committee, and members the national and state assemblies. State Working Committee was mandated to organize and communicate date for same.
“Pursuant to the provision of the new Party Constitution, which gives each State Chapter the opportunity of producing one additional member of the Board of Trustees member, SEC zoned same to the Southern Senatorial District considering the fact that both the Central and Northern Districts are represented, ” he said.
Akans added that, “SEC also approved the appointment of two physically challenged persons into the CAUCUS of the party in line with the Party’s constitution.
According to him, “The Meeting also approved the zoning of the party’s governorship position to the Southern zone for the purposes of the 2019 general elections.
He said the party’s Chairman, Hon. Damishi Sango, appreciated all members of the party for their support and sacrifices towards the success of the party.
Those present at the meeting were Senators Jeremiah Useini, Jonah Jang, other national and state assembly members, among others.
It would be recalled that the party’s failure to file a candidate from the Southern Zone led to its defeat in the 2015 gubernatorial polls.
