The Chairman Plateau State Grass-Root Youth for Justice, Davwab Zachariah has advocated for the rights of Plateau citizens at home and in the diaspora to participate in the electoral process of election leadership at all level of governance in Nigeria frowned at the suspension of the APC Chairman Letep Dabang as undemocratic without the due process.
In a press statement made available to this medium in Jos Zachariah reinstated the group plan to the state.
The Plateau State Grass-Root Youth for Justice, is a non-partisan, Non-Ethnic, Non-Religious group but monitors and checks the activities of political parties and exists to encourage justice, fairness, peace, and order at all levels of engagement, .
We are inundated by the recently staged suspension of the chairperson of the All-Progressives Congress (APC) Hon. Chief. Letep Dabang.
As youths whose mandate is to encourage fair play and justice for all and various levels, we rise to the occasion as a wake-up call for caution against the peace we have enjoyed as a state for some time. We are forced, therefore, to lend our voices knowing fully well that safeguarding our peace is a collective responsibility.
However, we must call a spade by its name. The suspension of the chairperson on the ground of Anti-Party activities is to say the least unreasonable, callous, uncharitable, and unjustifiable and lacks merit to the reasonable mind. We see this scenario as a calculated attempt to hijack the party by some cabals whom we see as selfish and might not mean well for the continuous growth of the party and our dear state at large. For the records, we are fully aware of the activities and pedigree of the suspended chairperson, first, as a founding member of the party whose wealth of political experience catapulted the party to where it is today.
We are fully aware of the Modus-operandi of the APC which is contained in its good books. Again, we appreciate the role of the grassroots through the ward level, a situation we conspicuously found lacking in the allegation, therefore, begging the question; who is responsible for this staged act? And to whose interest? We, therefore, pray that this action will not raise dust at the ward, LG, and state levels or worst-case scenario distort the peace we have enjoyed for the past years. We, therefore, call for serious caution, to whom it may concern.
We encourage that political parties should be instruments of mobilization rather than the polarization of the people knowing the role Hon. Chief Letep Dabang played in the Inter-Party Advisory Council (IPAC) in the state, a role we believed not only stabilized the parties in the state but also consolidate the peace in the state.
In conclusion, we wish to call on the national leadership of the APC to immediately rescind its decision by setting up an independent and transparent committee that will guarantee justice and fairness to all before the LG polls and other elections in order not to truncate the peace of the state.
