Useni, disclosed this on Monday during a meeting with some stakeholders of the party and said the National Secretariat and the Caretaker Committee has taken side with other group of the party to conduct an uninformed Congress.

“We are not accepting what happen but don’t fight and don’t make trouble. Nobody will come here and see this dignitaries and say we are nothing.

“I want you to fill in all candidates in all the positions and if there are two persons contesting one position; one should step down for another to make a new EXCO and see how the National Secretariat will run two secretariats from Plateau.

“We are not leaving PDP and we are not PDP 2. We are the main PDP and we will work in the interest of Plateau State, all we want is fairness and Justice.”

Hon. Bitrus Kaze, former Member House of Representatives and PDP Chairmanship aspirant said they pulled out of the alleged congress because of injustice and lack of fairness.

He said they will remain in PDP and ensure that the right thing is done to salvage the people of Plateau state in 2023.
