A member of the Planning, Research and Strategy team of the Goodluck Jonathan campaign organization, Yakubu Datti, on Tuesday said in spite of the burning of some the group’s vehicles, Plateau electorates will vote massively for the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, during the presidential elections.
“Plateau has been a traditional home of PDP. We did it in 2011; we are going to do the same in in 2015,” Mr. Datti said during a reception he organised for the Plateau PDP governorship candidate, Gyang Pwajok.
Some youth on Saturday set ablaze President Jonathan’s campaign buses in Jos, the Plateau State capital. A witness said the driver of one of the buses almost hit a lady on Bauchi Road Street and drew the anger idle youth.
Mr. Datti, while in Tunkus, Mikang Local Government Area of the state, said the members of the PDP will work hard to ensure their candidates at all levels win the elections.
He praised Mr. Jonathan’s administration saying the president delivered on all his promises.
On his part, Gyang Pwajok’s campaign director, Daniel Kungmi, said he will work hard to ensure Mr. Pwajok becomes the next governor of the state. He said he would also work for the victory of PDP candidates in all positions.
Mr. Kungmi said “I don’t have to campaign in Mikang because your solidarity today proves that mikang has spoken. I only have to channel my energies towards the other 16 local government areas”.
