Plateau Our Heritage Revival Initiative (POHri) has congratulated Hon. Dayyabu Garga the Executive Chairman of Kanam LGA, Amb. Gideon Dandareng Executive Chairman of Jos South LGA, his Deputy Hon. Ayuba Jagaba and other officials who were elected in the 9th October, 2021 Local Government elections.
In a statement jointly signed by the Chairman, Hon. Alex Yola and Secretary, Cmr. Friday Bako, the group applauded the Plateau State Independent Electoral Commission (PLASIEC) for conducting free and fair elections and charged the elected officials to work hard to justify the trust and confidence reposed in them with exceptional and people-oriented leadership.
The group commended the citizens of the State for their peaceful dispositions and for being law abiding throughout the elections which made the exercise smooth and without any violence.
The group also lauded the judiciary for attending to the matter brought to it, for giving it accelerated hearing and ruling that elections should hold to avoid vacuum at the third tier of government while the case is ongoing.
“Security agencies and the media need to be commended for their efforts and contributions to the peaceful and successful conduct of the elections as well as reportage of the exercise accordingly”
“We wish to call on all political parties in Nigeria and particularly in the State to practice inclusive democracy and work towards strengthening our nascent democracy”
“We charge the opposition parties to provide healthy, constructive and vibrant opposition that will engender democratic development”
“POHri enjoins all political Parties to adopt “direct primaries” to prevent moneybags or heavy weights from pocketing the parties. In so doing, personality clashes would be hugely reduced or even outrightly eliminated as well as the inclusion of youths, women and the handicapped in the running of the parties to help strengthen them which in turn will beautify the polity”
“We wish our new leaders at the third tier of government a successful tenure even as they settle down to provide credible leadership, stimulate economic growth and attract infrastructural developments to their respective local govt areas”
