Abuja (Sundiata Post) – A former Local Government Chairman in Plateau State, Hon. Caleb Mutfwang has said he will return the State to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
Mutfwang, who was a Council boss in Mangu LGA, under the former governor, Jonah Jang, said the task of reclaiming power from the APC can only be trusted by him.
“I am the only candidate for the Plateau PDP aspiring to make a difference because I am a party man”, he said.
Declaring his intention to run for the office of the governor on Wednesday, at the Party Secretariat in Jos, Mutfwang said: “I am well known to you because I am a party man, we have fought many battles together for the preservation of this party. I have committed myself to ensuring that the PDP survive on the Plateau and by the grace of God it will.
“I have come to offer myself as a leader that will not only unite the PDP but will also unite the people of Plateau State. I am desirous to see every part of Plateau in peace”, he said.
He Continued: “There has been no progress in Plateau State since 2015, the APC promised making a Naira to a Dollar but today, getting petrol is a problem, there is no law and order in the country, there is no government.
“No one sleeps with his two eyes closed due to insecurity. The time is now for us to use our voters’ cards to change the useless change or we all become useless.
“APC is a business partnership between Buhari and Tinubu, the only democratic thing they did is hosting a convention that produced Buhari. The job of chasing APC out of government is a task that must be done. The PDP can only do that by being united; if we don’t kill APC, APC will kill democracy.
“I offer myself to be considered and be given the PDP ticket to chase out APC in 2023. If you do that, I will not disappoint your trust”, he said.
