Party rejects endorsement of Governor Simon Lalong

By - - [Politics ]

Ahead of the gubernatorial and state assembly as well as supplementary elections billed for Saturday, the Joint Izere Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Caucus in Jos North and Jos East Local Governments of Plateau State has rejected the purported endorsement of Governor Simon Lalong and all other APC candidates contesting in the elections, saying the action offends the Afizere Cultural and Community Development Association
(ACCDA) constitution and the collective sensibilities of its members.


The PDP caucus said it unequivocally rejects what it described as “APC-induced charade”.

The Caucus through a former House of Representatives member, Hon. Bitrus Kaze said endorsing candidates of a political party by an ethnic group is setting a bad precedent.


Kaze who represented Jos South/Jos East Federal Constituency between 2007 and 2015, said, “The neutrality and credibility of the ACCDA has been effectively compromised. We unequivocally reject this APC-induced charade because it offends the Afizere Cultural and Community Development Association (ACCDA) constitution and our collective sensibilities.

According to him, “Following an emergency meeting summoned by the apex Izere socio-cultural organization at the Izere Arena Jos a few days ago, the Radio and TV arms of the state-owned Plateau Radio Television bombarded the airwaves with reports of a purported resolution endorsing all the APC candidates in the March 9th gubernatorial and State Assembly elections.

“The endorsement is a brainchild of APC stakeholders across Izere land who became alarmed by their dismal outing in the February 23rd Presidential/National Assembly polls.


He maintained that the National President of ACCDA, Hon. Luka Madaki who ought to have resigned since following the conflict of interest created by his appointment into Governor Lalong’s cabinet, stage-managed the proceedings to achieve a predetermined end.

“This explains the presence of journalists from PRTV at the outset of a supposedly emergency congress.

“The neutrality and credibility of the ACCDA have been effectively compromised. We unequivocally reject this APC-induced charade because it offends the ACCDA constitution and our collective sensibilities.



“It also violates their oath of office, as it sets a dangerous precedent and within the current competitive multi-party democracy on the Plateau, it projects the Izere ethnic nation as primitive.

“A politically motivated resolution instigated by a desperate ruling party cannot reflect the true wishes of Afizere people.

“We enjoin our people to jettison this self-serving endorsement and troop out en masse to vote for candidates of their choice.



“We applaud the courage and exemplary conduct exhibited by the Joint Izere Traditional Council led by their Royal Highnesses Dr. Isaac Wakili (the Agwom Izere) and Ada Emmanuel Ajik HRH (the Agwom Jos Izere) for consistently demonstrating their firm resolve to preserve the sanctity of the traditional institutions in Izere land.

“We also commend the body of Afizere Christian Clergy for resisting repeated attempts by the APC to hoodwink them into blessing this charade”.
