Agabus Pwanagba, Jos – With less than three weeks to the general elections, aggrieved governorship aspirants of the Peoples’ Democratic Party in Plateau state have established a parallel party structure in the State.
In a press statement signed by several of the aggrieved politicians and made available to AFRICAN EXAMINER ONLINE in Jos, Monday, the list includes Amb. Fidelis Tapgun, former PDP Chairman, Dr Haruna Dabin, Former Federal Permanent Secretary, Arc. John Alikali, former Director at FCDA, Engr. Jimmy Cheto, Senator Representing Plateau South, Victor Lar, Mr. Godfrey Miri and Mr. Chris Bature.
The statement reads: “our unanimously decision to form a parallel party structure was because Governor Jonah Jang has hijacked the State’s Party’s structure and is running it as if is his personal estate.
The aggrieved said they have constituted “Reformed Peoples Democratic Party”, with its Secretariat along Helen Gomwalk road, Jos, with a nine-member protem executive structure with Ambassador Ibrahim Kasai as chairman.
The new group said “we stand to resist the injustice of candidate imposition by the State Governor and party executives.”adding that their structure will not work for or mobilise its constituents for the ruling party ahead of the February general elections because of the gross injustice meted out to the State.
