Ahead of the ward congresses of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Plateau State Governor Simon Bako Lalong has called on members of the party in the state to come together and ensure a peaceful and smooth conduct that, would further strengthen the party.
Governor Lalong, while addressing the stakeholders in Jos, said, the ward congress elections are meant to give the party a stronger foundation for the consolidation of its successes in the state and across the country.
He called on members to be transparent and conduct themselves in a manner that would build harmony, peace and equity among members and also make the party maintain its position as the largest party in the country.
In a press statement signed by Dr. Dr. Simon Makut, the Director of Press to the Governor, the Governor advised the members to abide by the guidelines for the conduct of the primaries and also ensure that all avenues for consensus are exhausted for the emergence of ward officials.
Where such is not reached, elections should be conducted in a peaceful atmosphere and without any rancour.
Lalong urged those saddled with the task of conducting the elections to ensure that only registered members are allowed to participate in the process.
