Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Plateau State, Hon Chris Hassan, has said the party is so rooted in the state that if election were to be conducted 10 times or more, the party would win in the state.
He said in an interview with newsmen in Jos at the weekend that the APC has no structure in the state and till now, it is in court over their state congress.
“Our party can defeat a sitting government by a wide margin, win five House of Representatives seats, two senate seats and 16 members of the House of Assembly. Since those judgments were passed, Plateau has become a ghost town.”
He said no political party in Nigeria has a structure like the PDP, adding that the insinuation of having no structure in the state is baseless.
According to Hassan, the judgment against the party’s elected representatives at the state House of Assembly and National Assembly is a big surprise considering the overwhelming support given to all candidates of the party in the last general elections.
Hassan said the PDP complied with the court order, and conducted another state congress on September 25, 2021during which a new state executive emerged, adding that all the guidelines were strictly followed to in line with the constitution of the party and the electoral act.
