Jos - The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Plateau State has asked the local government chairmen elected on its platform to disregard a sack order served on them by Governor Simon Lalong, asking them to vacate their offices following the dissolution of the 17 local councils in the state, reports Daily Trust.
The party described the dissolution as illegal and urged the council chairmen to remain in their offices.
State chairman of the PDP, Raymond Dabo , during a press conference on Tuesday, described the action as disruption of the democratic process.
