2019 Gov: PDP Will Win Nassarawa State – Chairman
By Beauty John
The People’s Democratic Party ( PDP) chairman of Nasarawa state, Mr Francis Orogu has revealed that they are doing their best to make sure the house is in order and the party has set aside their differences and grievances and are working together to ensure the victor of the party in 2019 general election.
He made this known at press briefing in the PDP state secretariat in Lafia . He says
“We are in good contact and relationship with those who contested and lost the PDP governorship primary starting from Ewuga ,Gyunka to Mr Dameshi Luka and the rest. We are all intact and every body is playing a part to ensure we win the governorship election in 2019”
Orogu revealed that there has been a slight change in the zoning of their party due to its governorship candidate Hon. David Ombugadu choosing a running mate Hon. Ogoshi Onawo from the southern zone against the party zoning as the slot was earlier allocated to the western zone. The speaker position and the secretary to the state government (SSG) position which were allocated to the southern zone have now been shifted to the western zone.
According to him , Ombugadu was given an open ticket to chose so that he will not be pinned down by any body or group of interest rather than the strategy that can warrant the success of the party without hinderance .
The chairman debunked the rumor that his attack on the high way by gun men recently was likely sponsored by an aggrieved member of the party and explained that they were men of the underworld who stopped a random vehicle to rob. He blamed it on hardship and lack of employment “I feel it is very wrong for anybody to survive through that means , although the situation is hard these days, what you should be doing is praying that 2019 we will take over and give you jobs”.
