The gubernatorial candidate and flag bearer of the PDP in plateau state has gone all out to call on teaming supporters of the party in the state to come out and vote massively for him.
JT Useni, addressed pressmen at the state party office on Wednesday 6th March, 2019, assured party faithfuls of his commitment to serve and restore the state by serving for just one tenure. He however expressed dismay over the way the presidential election results in the state were canceled in various units and issued a serious warning to those planing to disrupt the polls.
Distinguished gentlemen of the Press,
I am here as the PDP Flag bearer in Plateau to share with you
a few of my thoughts and convictions on
some political developments in our dear State.
On Saturday, February 23, 2019, the people of Plateau voted
in national elections to elect President and members of the national assembly.
I thank our people for supporting the PDP to have a
convincing win in the presidential election.
I know that the elections were peaceful.
However, there were many problems at collation centres in
Results of our supporters in various units in Qua’an Pan,
Wase, Kanam and Jos North LGAs were cancelled without good reasons
We are not happy about this situation.
And we are working hard to get justice.
But on Saturday, March 9, 2019, we are all trooping out again
to elect the governor and members of the State house of assembly.
In some areas, there will be re-runs.
Nevertheless, as the gubernatorial candidate of our party, I
am concerned that some of our members and supporters are very angry and
disappointed that their votes did not count in the last elections.
And so they say that they will not vote in the governorship
I can understand why they are feeling this way.
I am also upset that we as a party and as a state were
cheated in different places.
But staying away from voting this week is definitely not the
solution to our disappointment
It will only make matters worse
So I plead with our supporters not to stay away from the
Should they allow themselves to accept defeat?
I must say it here clearly that we are here to win, not to
As the person leading the rest of Plateau to Restore our
state, I promise to stand by the people and protect their votes
I have been briefed on the many funny and strange
manipulations APC is working on right
now to rig Saturday’s elections.
And I must therefore warn very seriously: I WILL NOT TOLERATE
THE RIGGING OF THIS ELECTION
We are keeping very close surveillance on the electoral,
security, government and party personnel playing any role in the election
Plateau people have clearly spoken in the past Local
government and now national assembly
elections that they are tired of this APC government
No one, no matter how privileged or highly placed has the
right to try to force this non-performing administration on Plateau
We want our freedom and dignity.
And we will get it through this election.
I therefore ask the people not to fear anyone in uniform, but
to respect them in their work – that’s all
We must watch these electoral officers closely. They should
not play games with our destiny
We cannot allow them to cheat us again.
Plateau, I appeal to you: Let us come out in very large
numbers and vote again on Saturday, May 9, 2019
Your vote for me will bring me to office to Restore your
Your vote for me will help us to work together to fight
poverty and Restore prosperity to Plateau State
Your vote for me will help us Restore more opportunities for
our young people and women
Now, I will say something and say it loud and clear: I WILL
SERVE FOR ONLY ONE TENURE…A TENURE OF FOUR YEARS!
And I know that together with the people of Plateau, we can
achieve alot within those four years
So, I plead with you:
DO NOT BE AFRAID
INSTEAD BE BOLD
I call on our people:
COME OUT AND VOTE.
Vote for PDP
VOTE FOR ME, Senator Jeremiah Timbut Useni as Governor of
God bless us all.
