Sen. Victor Lar, a gubernatorial aspirant under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has promised to revolutionize Plateau state and ensure adequate security of lives and property and return Plateau state back to its glory days, if given the mandate to fly the party’s flag in the 2019 gubernatorial elections.
The aspirant made this pledge yesterday, 20th of September, 2018, to party delegates when he further toured four (4) more local governments as part of his meet the delegates tour to canvass for their support.
According to Sen. Victor Lar, “The major challenges of Plateau state are insecurity, over dependence on federal allocation as its only and major source of revenue for the state and lack of innovation for industrialization which invariably has led to poor Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) in the state”.
In most local governments visited a minute silence was observed for those who lost their lives in the recent attacks which he attributed to the insecurity in the state and if given the opportunity to fly the party’s ticket, he would put an end to it.
He further assured party delegates that he has what it takes as a full time politician to slug it out with any one in the opposing party if given the opportunity in the forth coming party primaries to be the party’s candidate.
“I am the right candidate to unseat the incumbent government of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state led by Gov. Simon Bako Lalong and I have the capacity to return Plateau state back to its lost glory days”.
Sen. Victor Lar assured delegates visited that he will support whoever emerges as the party’s candidate at the end of the day.
“I will support whoever emerges at the primaries, but I am pleading with you (delegates) to have a rethink and vote for the person who knows the business of politics and can move the state forward. I am that person!”
The local governments visited by the aspirant in this leg of the tour were Barkin Ladi, Riyom, Jos South and Bassa.
Recall that the aspirant had on Wednesday 19th of September had started his tour with the visit to Jos East and Jos North LGs.
