Chairman of Plateau State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Hon. Damishi Sango, has asked party members in the state to go out en masse to collect their Permanent Voter’s Cards (PVC) to enable them exercise their franchise to vote out the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2019 general elections.
Sango spoke on Friday evening, when the state Governorship aspirant, former State House of Assembly Speaker, Hon. George Edwards Daika, declared his aspiration for 2019 elections.
Sango said the issue of local government election in the state is paramount, though it was peremptorily suspended by the ruling APC government for no convincing reasons.
He said it was unfortunate that the APC in the state is going about the council election secretly, as he had heard rumours that the Plateau State Independent Electoral Commission (PLASIEC) would no longer use the present staff, who would be replaced by APC staff.
He said: “I want to warn that this state is tired of crises. We don’t want government, out of desperation, to come and stoke crises again. We have to warn that we don’t want any spirit of desperation in the local government election to lead us to another round of crises in this state again. We are not prepared for it.
