As the contest for the governorship of Plateau State continues to gather momentum, the Deputy Governor and governorship aspirant, Mr. Ignatius Longjan has promised to run an all inclusive administration if elected in 2015 polls.
Longjan made the promise while speaking with journalists on Sunday at his campaign office in Jos, on arrival from the National Secretariat of the PDP, where he submitted his governorship nomination form.
He said, “For offering me this opportunity to run for the office of the governor of Plateau state, I will make sure I carry everybody along in my government, this is a promise I made to people of Plateau State for purchasing nomination forms for me.
“I personally believe in government of inclusiveness, and it is my desire that together we shall all run a peaceful government.
“My boss governor Jang has led a purposeful government and has laid solid foundation for our dear State, the legacies he left behind is going to spure me into achieving more, I will build on the foundation he has laid for this State.
“I was part of Governor Jang’s administration, that is why my government is going to be a continuity of the redemption agenda. I therefore call on the people in the state to ensure the process leading to the 2015 election are peaceful.
“People should be law abiding, I don’t condone indiscipline and lawlessness in the campaign team.”
On the Ward Congresses held last week in the State, the aspirant said,
“I am not satisfied with the conduct of the congress, there was no congress in the real sense of it, some people just sat down somewhere and compiled delegates list, the list was a product of selection not election.
“What happened in the said congress was not part of democracy, the whole process should be cancelled and a transparent one be organized so as to show PDP has internal democracy”
