The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Plateau State has moved to reconcile persons aggrieved with the primaries with a view to approaching the 2023 elections with a united front.

State Chairman Chris Hassan stated this when he accompanied the party’s governorship candidate, Caleb Mutfwang, to his home town of Mangu.

Hassan noted that Mutfwang’s emergence as the governorship candidate has strengthened the party’s acceptability towards winning all elections in 2023.

Mutfwang, who received blessings of the Mangu traditional rulers and Plateau elders, said the party is poised to wrestle power from the All Progressives Congress (APC) and provide credible leadership for the state.

The candidate said he will leverage on his experience as a former local government chairman to work with the grassroots and run a people-oriented government. He promised that every ethnic group on the Plateau will be given a sense of belonging in his administration.

He added: “We are reconciling party members and making sure that we sensitise people so that when the campaigns start in earnest, we will go in as a united people.”

Deputy Governorship Candidate Josephine Piyo applauded women for trooping out enmasse to receive the PDP governorship candidate ‘who has great consideration for women in the rebuilding of Plateau State’.

Piyo assured them that Mutfwang will be gender-friendly in providing leadership on the Plateau if given the mandate, having ceded the deputy governorship position to women. She said women will play key roles in the government.
