Plateau PDP Youth Campaign Leader Urges Support for Allied Candidates in Rerun Election
Hitler Pwajok, the plateau PDP youth campaign leader, has rallied PDP youths to throw their support behind candidates whose ideologies align with that of the PDP in the upcoming rerun election. Pwajok urged all PDP youths to follow the party’s direction by voting for Prince Dachung Mwadkon of ADP for Plateau North Senate and Daniel Asama of the Labour Party for the Jos North/Bassa House of Representatives rerun election.
Addressing a crowd of youth leaders and the media at Azi Nyako Youth Center in Jos, Plateau state, on Thursday, February 1st, 2024, Pwajok expressed disappointment over the potential loss of better representation for the PDP and the deprivation of an independent, experienced candidate for Plateau North.
“We are pained by the injustice done to us as Plateau has been in the eye of the storm for obvious reconcilable reasons,” Pwajok lamented. Despite Plateau North nominating a candidate with capacity and experience, he highlighted the unfortunate circumstance of being unable to elect a representative with such qualities.
Pwajok called for peaceful elections and urged youths to exercise restraint despite the perceived injustice faced by the party due to the exclusion of their representatives from the rerun elections.
“We call on President Bola Tinubu to strengthen Nigerian institutions to ensure that people are not deprived of the opportunity to vote for their candidate of choice,” Pwajok emphasized.
Asserting their resolve, Pwajok stated, “We have all sent messages to leaders across Plateau and that we will stand against oppression by voting for the friends of the party in person of Prince Dachung Mwadkon of ADP for senate and Daniel Asama of the Labour Party for the Jos North Bassa House of Representatives rerun election.”
Recent developments revealed the exclusion of the PDP from the upcoming February 3rd rerun election for the Plateau North Senatorial District and Jos Bassa House of Representative rerun elections following the nullification of the election of Senator Simon Mwadkwon and Reps Musa Agah by the court of appeal.
