A statement issued and signed by the state Commissioner for Information & Communicatio, Yakubu Dati, appreciating Plateau people said though the presidential campaign launch was an APC affair, citizens crossed party border lines to endorse President Buhari, Governor Lalong and the APC for a fresh mandate in the 2019 general elections.
Dati said Governor Lalong commended Plateau citizens who renounced their former parties for the APC,noting that there is more room for those waiting in the wings to join the party.
The commissioner said the response of Plateau citizens to President Buhari’s visit has put paid to lies that Plateau is a PDP state.
