Jos - Some past and present elected and appointed leaders in Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Plateau State have rejected Senator Gyang Pwajok as the party’s governorship candidate in the state, reports Daily Trust.
The leaders, have, however, adopted the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state, Barr Simon Lalong.
Operating under the auspices of Kice Awareness for Change, the leaders lambasted Governor Jonah Jang for anointing Pwajok even when he knew that Pwajok was his kinsman from Plateau North Senatorial Zone.
Chairman of the group, Hon Ayik John Sati, said members of the group and their loyalists have resolved to support Lalong in the April governorship poll in the state.
Sati, who was a PDP chairman in Bassa LGA, noted that the Southern zone of state is the appropriate region to produce the next governor in the state.
