That Plateau state as presently constituted, that is from 1996 to date ,has not produced any person from the southern senatorial district as Governor in spite of the huge pool of talented and capable individuals from the zone.
We note with dismay and condemn the manipulation of the PDP Governorship primaries which outcome did not produce any candidate from the southern senatorial district.
The group took some resolutions that we give our total and unflinching support to the only candidate from the southern senatorial district in the person of RT. Hon Barr. Simon Bako Lalong of the APC .
We urge all well meaning people of the southern senatorial district and the good people of Plateau state to give him total support for equity and justice.
This forum condemns in strong terms the so-called endorsement of the PDP candidate by some self appointed elders purportedly on behalf of the elders of Plateau state and requests all the good people of Plateau state to distance themselves from this group of elders.
