“We are going to leave no stone unturned and with God on our side, we are going to win as we have the people behind us”, he said.

“The Directorates have been carefully formed to accommodate all interests.
“All my activities have the express approval of the governor and the party.
“These include the thank you visits to all the LGAs and the citizens engagement.
“The engagement which other parties are now copying but who cannot meet our standard were very fruitful as we have put the name of APC on all the streets of Plateau.
“We had citizen engagement and we were able to talk to the people across board including traditional rulers, religious leaders, development associations, trade unions, market women, youth and women groups and civil society organisations”, Nentawe said.
The APC however revealed that it will soon flag off its governorship campaign in Wase Southern zone of the State, to be followed by Central and Norrhern Senatorial Districts of the State.
