The former Chairman of the Nigerian Labour Congress, NLC in Plateau State, Comrade Kemi Nshe, has joined the list of those seeking to wrestle powers from the ruling APC come 2019
Comrade Nshe who picked and returned his nomination from under the ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has begun consultations with stakeholders, delegates and other party supporters on the need to choose him as the governorship flag bearer of the party for the 2019 general election.
He warned against zoning the state PDP to another zone which to him was the major defeat of the party in 2015 general election but disclosed his personal plan to remove Governor Simon Lalong in 2019.
Nshe says, Lalong is a village man from Ajikamai and he is a full blown Goemai person who knows the politics of the people of Shendam very well so my request is to give their support.
According to him, “I am a Goemai Man, Lalong is also a Goemai man, I control the city of Shendam while he (Lalong) runs local politics in Ajikame, and if I am given the ticket, by the time elections are being conducted before he goes to Ajikame and comes back, we would have already finished collecting the results in Shendam before 12 noon”.
” In 2015, PDP had all it could have taken to win the elections, we were controlling the governments and the money but just little mistakes made us to lose that election, and if we must get it right this time, I am the only candidate that can beat Lalong.”
“Having served as NLC Chairman and in other capacities before moving to serve as local government chairman for three terms. I know the problems and needs of Plateau citizens, and I promise I will not fail them.
“What we need now if for us to come together and work for the party, and I assure you that if we have 240, 000 votes in the Southern zone and I am made the flag bearer of the party, I am capable of producing 75 percent votes for the People’s Democratic Party, PDP in that area, but any silly mistake, then the party will lose to Lalong.”
The Kemi Nshe Campaign team later moved to Bassa and Jos North Local Government Areas where he appealed to delegates to reason with him and consider him the best option in the forthcoming delegates’ election.
He urged them not to compromise on their integrity for monetary inducements but support who will deliver the party.
