Plateau Congress: APC remains a beacon of democracy – Gov. Lalong

by warritatafo

Governor Simon Lalong of Plateau State says the All Progressives Congress, APC, family remains a beacon of democracy and the hope for the “peace, progress and unity” of the State and the nation at large.

He said the peaceful conduct of the State Congress which was through consensus shows how committed the members are in galvanising all differences and working together for the common interest of the party.

Lalong, who spoke at the APC State Congress in Jos where members of the State Executive Committee were elected, said the level of “maturity and seamless conduct” demonstrated by members clearly showed the strength of the party in the State and the unity of its members.

According to him, “Such unity of purpose has been responsible for the continous acceptance of our party and its consolidation in Plateau State, which accounted for the recent overwhelming victory of the APC in the recent Local Government elections and enable the party to win in all the 17 Local Government areas.”

While urging the new State party Executives to work in synergy with other party officials at the Local Government, Ward and Unit levels, the Governor emphasised the need for them to carry along all members and be “fair, honest and transparent” in all their dealings.

In his remarks, Deputy Speaker House of Representatives Idris Wase, described the State Congress as yet another record breaker in the successes achieved by the party in the State.

Wase said, “this successful congress has clearly shown that the APC remains the biggest party in the State and across the nation with clear capacity for more victories in forthcoming elections.”

He urged members to come together and embrace “reconciliation and patience” in supporting the elected party officials to deliver on their mandate.

Responding on behalf of the newly elected State Exco, Chairman-elect, Hon. Rufus Bature, who is the immediate past Secretary to the Government of Plateau State and one time member of the State House of Assembly, expressed appreciation to the members and leaders of the party for electing them.

Bature said the fact that their election was done through consensus without any challenge meant that the party had fully evolved and was taking major strides in “good governance, inclusivity and fairness to the citizens”.

He specifically thanked Governor Lalong for giving the State the needed leadership that had endeared APC to the people and continued to give them hope.

He assured that the party exco will support him and also carry along all members at all times and also avail them level playing field for those aspiring to any position.

The election was conducted by the APC State Congress Committee set up by the national body and witnessed by INEC. The new Exco has 36 members.
