I remain the only Plateau Governorship Candidate of LP recognised by INEC, says Amb. Margif
A philanthropist and businessman Ambassador Yohanna Margie has declared that he remains the only gubernatorial candidate of the Labour Party recognised by the INEC and vowed not to relinquish the governorship ticket to anyone.
It would be recalled that a gubernatorial primary of the party was allegedly held recently and produced another Candidate Dr Patrick Dakum as its gubernatorial candidate for the 2023 governorship election in Plateau State which has resulted in going to court.
Margif during Press Conference in Jos on Friday said he remains the authentic flagbearer of the Labour Party in Plateau State, having been presented with the Certificate of return after the Primary election.
“my name has been in the news for quite some time. Despite all sheds of colouration, ill wishes and manipulations from high and low places, I make it bold to remind you that I am the genuinely elected gubernatorial candidate of the Labour Party in Plateau State.
“I must confess that all these plots and manipulations by desperate politicians have distracted me as | have to directly or indirectly go to the Press to counter their mischievous and misleading information concerning Plateau Labour Party.
“That notwithstanding, I am making known to assure and reassure our teeming supporters that nothing has changed from what happened on 9th June 2022 at Retna Suit Multi-purpose Hall Sabon Barki Jos South during my Governorship primaries.
“On this note, therefore, | urge you all to be conscious of rumour peddlers whose business is nothing but spreading the rumour for selfishly induced gains.
“It would interest you to know that | have put all those baseless, unfounded allegations and fake news behind me to forge ahead with my right-time call in the interest of Plateau Citizens.
Ambassador Margif called on all his supporters and party members of the labour party, to keep calm.
” I am also vying for the office of the Governor of Plateau State because j want to bequeath a good infrastructural legacy and return Plateau to the People.
He added that only God Almighty is his godfather, saying the People of Plateau are his backbone and promised not to disappoint them when elected the Governor of the state.
