Story from Najibullahi ADAMU
As Nigeria heads towards the 2023 general elections, a political group known as Youths Advocates for Unity and Good Governance in Plateau state has endorsed a legal luminary Professor Dakas C.J Dakas as the next governor of the state.
The coordinator of the group, Alhaji Hayatu Suleman made the endorsement in a statement issued to our correspondent Thursday, in which he described Dakas as a man that the people of Plateau can rely on considering his wealth of experience as a trained lawyer who reached the peak of his law career as a Professor and Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN).
According to him, for the APC to retain the spirit of winning, the likes of Dakas ‘are not just an alternative in the next Plateau state gubernatorial elections but the only option to move the state forward after the government of Simon Lalong’.
“What Plateau state needs now is a highly intellectual, mobile and sagacious politician in the person of Dakas to lead our state to glory once again as the next governor from the Plateau Central Zone.
“Even though the ruling party is being confronted with challenges, it should not be seen as the party’s weaknesses, but rather, as stages of development and success.
“After extensive consultations with the party hierarchy, women groups, youth associations, stakeholders within the party in the state, the Forum has come to the conclusion that Professor Dakas is an experienced politician, equipped with the knowledge and ability to take the state to greater height”. The statement reads in parts.
