AMB. YOHANNA Y.D MARGIF, REMAINED THE GOVERNORSHIP CANDIDATE OF LABOUR PARTY IN PLATEAU STATE FOR 2023 ELECTION
My attention has been drawn to a purported and illegal primary election by some disgruntle political elements who disguised themselves as members of Labour Party in Plateau State, I wish to state clearly thatI am the only and authentic governorship candidate of Labour Party in Plateau.
You recall that a primary election of the Labour Party was conducted on the 9 June, 2022 at Retnan Hotel and Event Centre, Bukuru where I emerged the candidate of the party and certificate of return was subsequently presented to me by the National Chairman of the Party to affirmed me as the standard bearer of the party for 2023 election.
Since then, I have taken deliberate steps incollaboration with other members of the party in Plateau and at the National Secretariat to put the party in to better perspective to win the 2023 election. I must say without contradiction that my effort since I joint the Labour Party has endeared several persons from different political parties into the Labour Party.
I wish to state clearly that I have not in any way contemplated withdrawal from the 2023 governorship election in Plateau State and I will not withdraw from the race. I am in the contest to win the election and give Plateau people good governance that will engender development.
I am not in the contest to withdraw, and the ticket of Labour Party in Plateau State is not for sell, therefore those who are clamouring for the ticket and miss leading gullible Plateau people and Nigerians that I have withdrawn from the race should desist forthwith.
The alleged illegal and concocted primary election that brought together people who are selling groundnut, Kunu, Moimoi among others as delegates at the King’s Palace Hotel allegedly owned by the Former Governor of Plateau State Senator Joshua Dariye, is null and void, and cannot hold water.
It has become very expedient for me to place on record that my life is under threat as some politicians, particularly aspirants who contested the APC primary election and lost have being mounting pressure on me to withdraw from the race. I wish to state clearly that I have not withdraw from the race and I don’t have any plan to withdraw.
I call on my strident supporters in Plateau State to keep calm and know that I am still the authentic governorship candidate of Labour Party in Plateau State. I am vying for the office of the Governor of Plateau State because I want to bequeath good infrastructural legacy and return Plateau to the people.
Thank you and God bless you.
Amb. Yohanna Y. D Margif
