The gubernatorial candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Plateau State, Caleb Mutfwang has adjudged the Party the most credible platform for the state ahead of the 2023 elections.
He said the plot orchestrated by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state to take the PDP out of the ballot in 2023 has failed; urging citizens to shun the APC and vote for PDP in the coming polls.
Mutfwang disclosed this on Thursday while appreciating Plateau people for coming out en mass to receive the presidential candidate of the party, Atiku Abubakar during the recent presidential campaign rally in Jos, the State Capital.
He described PDP as a probable wife who was rejected and after marrying another one which is the APC, the people turned out disappointed and reverted to the first wife which is the PDP.
Mutfwang apologized to Plateau people for the shortcomings of the PDP in the past and assured that the mistakes of the past would not be repeated going forward.
He acknowledged that he does not have all the solutions to the challenges currently confronting Plateau but assured that everybody would be brought on board to galvanize valuable initiatives and ideas to move the state forward.
“There are people who have lost hope in the 2023 elections, we have people who are drowning, we have our opponents who have lost hope and they already know that they are defeated at the polls and the only thing they can do is to try to raise fears in the minds of loyal voters to the PDP, but I wish to tell you that there is no such thing.
“I can tell you that there are some attempts sponsored by the APC government to take the PDP out of the ballot, but sadly, they failed.
“I want to salute the courage of the judiciary in standing as the last hope of the common man, I can assure all our supporters, the people of Plateau State and Nigerians, that PDP is the safest platform for the 2023 elections.
“As a matter of fact, if justice was done, APC will not be on the ballot, the Labour Party will not be on the ballot but I can guarantee you that PDP is safe and sound”, he assured.
Mutfwang reiterated that, if given the mandate, his administration will also focus on improving on the “capacity and effectiveness” of the local government administration in the State to deliver services to the citizenry at a local level.
