Agabus Pwanagba, Jos
Governor Jonah Jang of Plateau State has declared that the All Progressive Congress (APC) is not qualified to be registered as a political party, calling on INEC to look into the terms and conditions of registering a party.
He made the declaration in Kwata-Zawan, in Jos South Local Government Area of the State on Friday, at the final rally for the forthcoming Council polls slated for 25th, February, 2014. Chairmanship candidates in the Northern zone were given their flags at the occasion.
“I heard someone said APC doesn’t have NAFDAC number, which means they are illegal and I’m aware truly they are not qualified to be registered as political party.
“Just go and look at the laws for the registration of political parties and see whether APC is qualified to be registered as a political party.
“As one of the founding fathers of PDP, I’m asking INEC to look at the terms and conditions of registering a political party and see whether that APC is qualified to be registered as a political party in the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
“In Plateau our word is our bond. When we say it, we do it.
He asked, “Is there anything PDP has said it would do on the Plateau that it has not done? The crowd shouted no.
He added that, “We are poor but we are not poor in spirit, anything that comes to Plateau State, God multiplies it.
Speaking to the Chairmanship and Councilorship candidates, Governor Jang said, any Local Government that does not deliver in the council elections does not wish him well as he clocks 70 years next month.
He maintained that PDP is waxing strong in Plateau and will continue to do so.
On the 2015 Presidential elections, he assured President Goodluck Jonathan that, the people of the state gave him the highest votes from the North in 2011 and will do same in 2015.
“I have already told Mr. President that he can only come here for his brothers and sisters to see his face.”
