2023 Elections: Plateau State Association USA Lauds Plateau Citizens’ Improved Participation

Plateau State Association in the United States of America (PSA, USA) has commended Nigerians especially the Citizens of Plateau State who went out to vote and exercise their fundamental freedom to make their voices heard. In a statement signed by Dr. Barth Shepkong lauded the participation of young voters, many of whom went to the ballot box for the first time saying it is worthy of note.
He said elections are a fundamental part of a functioning democracy, and all Nigerians deserve the chance to choose their future — freely and fairly.

“While PSA USA does not endorse any single candidate or party, we strongly support a peaceful and transparent process that reflects the will of the people of Plateau State and Nigeria at large.
“In the upcoming gubernatorial and house of assembly elections, we encourage voters to remain peaceful and patient as they cast their votes. We urge all political parties and candidates to abide by the signed Peace Accord and fully commit to supporting all efforts that ensure that only the Nigerian people decide who wins the election(s). It is imperative for Nigeria’s stability and democratic consolidation that the process is conducted and concluded safely and credibly. We encourage all actors to calm tensions and avoid violence of any sort proactively. It is believed that the proposed electoral system, when fully functional, will enhance the integrity and credibility of the outcome of future elections in Nigeria” he said.
According to him, Plateau State Association USA will support and partner with the newly elected administration as we continue to advocate for good governance. Working with Plateau State Citizens in the Diaspora will help create a sense of belonging and cement our passionate interests in contributing significantly to our state’s socioeconomic and political development.

“PSA USA will continue to partner and advocate for a fair democratic process that reflects the will of our people and our collective goal for a #BetterPlateau.
Finally, the future belongs to all of us. Let’s work together to make it what we want. It’s time we separate tribe and religion from politics, remember, change begins with you and I. Let us consciously work in building a better society” he concluded.
