Jos North/Bassa Bye-Election: A Foretaste Of What Is To Come
Written by Joey Shekwonuzhibo on February 27, 2022
The Jos North/Bassa Bye-election which held yesterday has been won by the People’s Democratic Party (PDP). The result not only reflects the mood of the people but is a forestate of what to expect as the 2023 general elections are fast approaching.
We must congratulate and commend the constituents for conducting themselves in an orderly manner before, during, and after the election. The results reflect their commitment and resilience to having good representation in the Federal House of Representatives.
Our party leadership at the National level, ably led by Senator (Dr.) Iyorchia Ayu deserves worthy commendation for their support and full backing in the course of the campaigns as well as during the elections proper. The PDP NEC constituted a Campaign Council, graciously visited the State chapter of the party, and attended the grand rally leading to the elections.
We must register our profound gratitude, particularly to the Governor of Rivers State Barr. Nyesom Wike and to the Governors of Benue and Bauchi, Dr. Samuel Ortom and Senator Bala A. Mohammed, respectively, for their support and for physically being on-ground to monitor the elections. Your commitment has indeed yielded positive results.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) conducted the election in a free, fair and credible manner, leaving no one in doubt as the results reflect the wishes of the electorate. We commend them and urge the INEC to continue to live up to its name and be a truly independent umpire as we engage in the general elections in 2023.
The State EXCO of our party has shown leadership by ensuring that all the necessary measures were put in place to guarantee victory for our candidate. For this, the State EXCO also is commended. However, The tasks ahead of you is enormous, you must not rest on your oars but work closely with the national leadership of our great party to mobilize Nigerians to vote out this wicked party in the 2023 general elections. This is a task that is possible and must be done, to guarantee a better life for our citizens and the generations unborn.
While I congratulate Hon. Musa Agah on his victory, I am quick to remind that he must do all that is possible not to disappoint those that have against all odd voted for him.
For: Senator Jonah David Jang
Former Governor and leader of the PDP in Plateau.
