We want PDP to come back to winning ways – Jang


By Chijioke Kingsley

Abuja (Sundiata Post) – The former Governor of Plateau State, Jonah Jang has said the aim of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Stakeholders, is for the Party to come back to its era of winning ways.

Jang said the party is drifting from its principle of justice, equity and fairness, adding that if nothing is done to address it, the party will continue to lose elections, especially at the national level.

The former governor stated this while reacting to a publication purportedly issued by a certain group, ‘Plateau for Atiku Group’ which alleged that Plateau PDP stakeholders disowned Jang for asking the national chairman of the PDP, Dr. Iyorchia Ayu, to resign.

Reacting through his media consultant, Clinton Garuba, Jang said the group does not understand the principle of the party and the foundation in which the PDP was built upon.

Clinton in a statement issued on Sunday in Jos, Jang emphasised that he does not have anything personnel with Atiku Abubakar charging the group to recall that in 2019, he mobilised his personal resources in support of Atiku.

He argued that the group may have been carried away by blind followership to know that him and other founding fathers of the PDP built it on the principles of justice, equity and fairness and it is these principles that held the party to where it is today. Subverting the constitution of the party’s long-held tradition of inclusiveness is a sure way to derail the party from getting back to its winning ways, he said.

According to him: “we are not surprised that such a publication is authored by Prof. Shedrack Best who is still aggrieved and sulking over his loss in the recently held primaries of the PDP in Plateau State. He needs to let go of the bitterness against Jang as he is not responsible for his loss, as the stakeholders agreed then that, the delegates voted for aspirants and only one winner could emerge.

“It is true that Sen Jang and other prominent members of the party had been with Governor Nyesom Wike in the fight to entrench truth, equity and the need to give all members a sense of belonging but we have also made it clear that it was for the purpose of moving the party forward and leading it to victory at the polls”, Garuba said.
