The member representing Jos South/Jos East Federal Constituency of Plateau State, Dachung Musa Bagos has stated that the State Governor, Simon Bako Lalong, cannot deliver the state to the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the forthcoming 2023 general elections.
Bagos, who is a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), made this statement while speaking to journalists in Abuja on Monday.
The lawmaker said that Lalong, who is the Director-General of the APC’s Presidential Campaign Council for Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, had not performed, and as such, won’t get people’s votes for his party at the state and the national level.
According to him, apart from the poor performance of the APC at both Plateau and the national level, the youths have already taken a position and are ready to take back their country.
He said, “I want to let you know that the people of Plateau are waiting for February 25, 2023, to pass their verdict on Governor Lalong and his presidential candidate, Ahmed Bola Tinubu.
“I can assure you that every candidate will get votes according to his performance. The governor has failed Plateau people in all areas since 2015, which is why he cannot deliver Plateau State to the APC and the presidential candidate. Being a DG will not change the decision of the youths and the Plateau electorate.
“Remember, the youths constitute more than 60 per cent of the electorate and by the way, how can a party that has kept our youths, the students at home for more than half a year get votes from the same people who have been denied their right to education; the same group of Nigerians who have no jobs, people who are pauperised, how can they vote for APC?”
