The Chairman Plateau Northern Zone of the Peoples Democratic Party PDP Hon. Davou Mang has said the Northern Zone is the stronghold of the Party in the State and will do everything possible to ensure that APC is gone in 2023.

Mang stated this while addressing stakeholders, party leaders and elected Representatives during the first caucus meeting of Plateau North held on Friday in Jos.

He said the first caucus meeting is to engage the PDP stakeholders in the Northern Zone towards strengthening the party, reconcile agrieved members as well as unite members of the party to take over in 2023.

He noted that the party is taking serious measures to bring out a strong candidate to contest for the bye election for the Jos North/Bassa Federal Constituency seat.

According him, the meeting is a constitutional requirement and was organised to address stakeholders on affairs of the party.

Mang said that the meeting was also to listen to elected representatives on the platform of the party on what they have been doing.

“The meeting is also to promote unity among members and reposition the party to recapture power in 2023.

“We are here to discuss ways to move our party forward. We are family, meeting to discuss issues and resolve issues where they are needed to be resolved,’’ he said.

Senator Representing Plateau North Sen. Istifanus Gyang who also addressed stakeholders at the meeting said that the meeting was a platform to engage with the people as their representative.

Gyang said that he would soon have a midterm engagement with the people of the zone to present a report of the mandate given to him in the last two years.

“There is no local government in the zone that we do not have a standing project as physical proof of the mandate given to us by the people.

“We will be commissioning projects in this constituency very soon to mark midterm of the four years tenure,’’ he said.

The State Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Hon. Chris Hassan who is also from Northern Zone said the PDP would zone the 2023 governorship ticket to where the people want.

Hassan said that the party has not taken the decision where its governorship candidate would come from.

“When the time comes the party caucus will meet and decide where the next governor will come from.

“We will zone to where the people want because this is People’s Democratic Party and we will zone base on acceptability of the people of the state,’’ he said.

On reconciliation of aggrieved members of PDP, Hassan said that the PDP has constituted committees from the ward to the state levels to reconcile them.

According to him, each political party has some people that may have some issues and they needed to be reconciled.

“This is necessary because everybody is important and we need all hands to be on deck so that we will take over Plateau state come 2023,’’ he added.

The caucus meeting had elders, party officials from the zones, national and state members elected on the party platform.
