You Can’t Win Plateau Elections From Nasarawa, PDP Tells APC

The Plateau State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has taunted leaders of the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) who recently converged on Lafia, Nasarawa State capital, for a strategy meeting ahead of 2027, saying elections can only be won on Plateau soil and not in Lafia.

It will be recalled that APC leaders from Plateau State met in Lafia, Nasarawa State for a reconciliatory engagement while also  planning to reposition the party for greater successes ahead 2027 general election in the state.

A statement by the acting PDP publicity secretary, Alh. Mairake Yaro, from Jos, Plateau State, described the APC meeting as a gathering of failed politicians who can not deliver their wards.

He said the meeting predictably ended in a meaningless gyration with a free lunch in the government house as the  only highlight.

The spokesman however  said the PDP is curious about the opposition’s sudden preference for Lafia over Abuja.

“We shudder to ask? Have they fallen out of favor with Mr. President, or support base shrinking faster than expected”?

PDP further said the story of APC, while in power from 2015-2023, was the worst nightmare of Plateau people in their entire history, adding that it led to their overwhelming defeat in the 2023 general elections.

The Plateau ruling party further said APC seemed poised for another defeat in 2027.

Yaro also advised the APC leaders to apologise to the people of Plateau State for the wasted years marked by stagnation and retrogression.

“If the progress achieved in one year under Governor Caleb Mutfwang leadership has unsettled them to the extent of holding a reconciliatory meeting in Lafia, one can only wonder where his achievements in the second year will drive them to”?

He added that Governor  Mutfwang would   graciously approve the  Azi Nyako Youth Centre in Jos for the next APC reconciliatory meeting.

“His visionary leadership is driving sustainable development and improving the lives of the common people in the state. The governor will continue to lead with his exceptional vision, the PDP is steadfast in its commitment to collaborating closely with him to ensure a prosperous and inclusive future for all,” the party said.
