Barely two weeks to the governorship primaries of the PDP, a group, Equity and Justice Forum
 founded by a former PDP Chairman in Plateau State
 Prof. Dakum Shown appears to be in a state of quandary.

The group is
 the umbrella body for aggrieved politicians who are against the choice of Governor Jonah Jang’s anointed candidate, Sen.Gyang Pwajok for the 2015 governorship polls.

The disagreement appears to be stemming from the efforts of the group to pick a consensus candidate from the Southern Senatorial Zone to challenge Sen.Gyang Pwajok in the forth coming primaries.

that the leadership of the forum met with all
 the 7 aspirants from the Southern Senatorial
 zone, and advised some of them to drop their ambitions in
 support of the ideas of a consensus candidate.

A reliable source close to the meeting said that the idea was for all
 the 7 aspirants to unite behind one person who would then challenge Senator Pwajok.

The source further confirmed that some of the aspirants however rejected the idea of dropping their ambition, accusing the leadership of the 
Equity and Justice Forum of taking sides and acting on behalf of a particular candidate, even as they threatened to continue their
 ambition independent of the Prof. Dakum Shown led

The aspirants who met with the leadership of the Equity and Justice Forum in Jos, included Deputy governor Ignatius Longjan, former Governor Fidelis Tapgun, former Director-General of the Industrial Training Fund,
(ITF), Prof Longmas Wapmut, Senator Victor Lar, Architect John Alkali, Engr. Jimmy Cheto and Godfrey Oman Miri.

However a close confidant of one of the aspirants told our correspondent that his boss was keeping an open mind about the consensus situation, but that they do not trust the body language of the 
leadership of the Equity and Justice Forum.

His words, “We can already sense foul play in the process, we know that these people are
 playing the script of one of these candidates (whom we know), to facilitate his emergence, but we shall resist that vehemently.”
