Mangu - The PDP chairmanship primary elections held in the Plateau Central Zone ahead of the council polls in the state were peaceful, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.

Samuel Goar, Caleb Mutfwang and Monday Kassa won in Pankshin, Mangu and Bokkos local government areas respectively.

Goar polled 47 out of 127 votes cast to beat four other contestants in Pankshin while Mutfwang scored 76 votes to beat seven others.

In Bokkos, Kassa garnered 73 votes to beat his five rivals in the contest for the number one position in the council.

Paul Wai, Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, and that of Mineral Development, Sani Anwan, who were the returning officers for Mangu and Bokkos, declared the results.

The Commissioner for Agriculture, Stephen Barko, who declared Goar as winner of the Pankshin primaries, commended the delegates for the manner they conducted themselves during the exercise.

“We have one of the peaceful and transparent primaries in the history of PDP in Plateau.”

“We hope that those who lost election will take it in good faith and join hands with Goar for the benefit of the party and the council,” he said.
