Witnessing with humility and the state at heart, Dr. Godfrey Bawa Shitgurum, who came to the venue much early to show respect for the former governor and elder statesman, Sen. Jonah Jang, walked into the venue with his admirers and supporters and took a back seat out of respect, immediately he stepped into the venue.
You would recall that statistics has shown that, Dr. Bawa is one of the leading contenders for the governorship seat in the state.
However, his humility paid off when he was invited to take the front seat with the Presidential Aspirant, Sen. Jang on his arrival.
Dr. Bawa is expected to formally inform the PDP EXCO, the party’s stakeholders and the people of Plateau State, tomorrow of his intention to run for the number one seat.
