The governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in Plateau State Senator Jeremiah T. Useini has expressed confidence of winning the governorship elections slated for 9th March, 2019.
Useini stated this during a press briefing, held at the party's Secretariat in Jos.
He called on voters to turn out enmass to vote for PDP during the exercise. Useini expressed dissatisfaction with INEC on many irregularities during the last presidential and National Assembly elections.
He frowned as where some results of their party's candidates in some poling units were cancelled without any meaningful explanation, in places like; Jos-North, Kanam, Wase and Qua'an Pan Local Government Areas.
The governorship candidate also used the opportunity to thank the party faithfuls and its supporters who conducted themselves peacefully during the February 23rd elections.
According to Useini, "Staying away from voting this Saturday is definitely not a good solution, as it will only make matter worse", he said.
He stated that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will win the governorship and House of Assembly elections in Plateau State.
He said, "As the person leading the rest of Plateau to Restore our state, I promise to stand by the people and protect their votes. I have been briefed on the funny and strange manipulation APC is strategizing on to 'rig' the Saturdays elections. And I must therefore warn those behind this move to stay away", he cautioned.
Useni further warned, "No one, no matter how privileged or highly placed has the right to try to force this administration on Plateau people. Therefore, i ask the people not to fear anyone in uniform, but to respect them while performing their respective duty".
He further called on the people to watch electoral officers closely. Saying, they shouldn't play games with peoples destiny. And warned that we cannot allow them to cheat us again.
Useini also used the medium to debunked news making the rounds that he intend to stay in office for eight (8) years if voted. He reaffirmed his position to run for just one 'single tenure'.
According to Useini, "Now I'll say something, and say it loud and clear: I WILL SERVE FOR ONLY ONE TENURE..... A TENURE OF FOUR (4) YEARS", he said.
