Having carefully observed the politics of the People Democratic Party in Jos North /Bassa Federal constituency since the return of democracy a lot need to be done by the electorates to effect political change.

In reality, Hon. Jonathan Dabo is the flag bearer of PDP in the last general elections for Bassa/Jos North federal house representatives; he was once the Chairman of Bassa LGA.

He hailed from the Pengana constituency, his electoral ward is Zabolo he has participated in the last North Central congresses as a delegate because of the flag of the party PDP that he is still carrying.

It was gathered had over five aspirants eyeing to contest but the most popular amongst them all is Jonathan Dabo who has the grassroots support across all ethnic and religious lines with the principle of promoting the tenets of our beautiful democracy.

However, this medium went round to sample opinions of political pundits and its victory for the PDP if they are willing and let go of their differences in politicking to grab power come 2023.

Our correspondent acknowledged the 16 years of PDP a government which was characterized by the imposition of candidates, non-adherences to zoning arrangements, and lack of internal democracy including desperate leaders to remain under the corridor of power.

Sometimes in May  2015, when the politician took the bull by the horn effect change in leaderships from the councillorship to the presidency but today change has left many supporters of APC with stories to mimic with considering the poor management of the country resources leading to many Nigerians living from the garbage.

Besides this ugly development, people are agitating for leadership change in Jos North, Bassa Federal constituency to bring in experience personality with credibility towards stimulating, educating entrepreneurship, and empowerment of women and youth who are a vulnerable agent of change in society.

We have Hon Ado Adere, including the current member, Hon. Musa Agah member representing Rukuba/Irigwe in Plateau state house of assembly. Who just spent one year and some few months in his seat and a host of others who are still consulting with their parties?

We urge the PDP to give Jonathan Dabo the quest of giving opportunities to showcase his visions and drive for a better Jos North, Bassa constituency, has performed creditably well as council Chairman, since he assumed office, comparatively.

“His l efforts to rebuild our constituent, to renew its spirit, and to restore the allegiance of this government to its citizens. In short, he embarked on a mission to make Jos north, Bassa great again— for all political class”

PDP Youths under aegis progressive enjoyed the support of Jonathan to be giving the ticket as the candidate for the bye-election they said it is high time Honourable Jonathan Dabo be appreciated for unflinching support and his risk over the years.

An appeal came in that some of this indivisible ethnic speaks volume, others will not trade with the contributions so far made by the Hon Jonathan Dabo over the years, as they would rather have this first timer in green chamber rejected.

However, in the spirit of rotation which is purposefully esteem among politicians from this locality, In other to deepen unity and understanding for the pursuance of peace, justice, and equity, returning an individual over and overtime is a setback on progression and development.
