2023: I doubt Lalong’s capability to deliver Plateau for Tinubu — Rep Bagos


Deputy chairman of the House of Representatives, Dachung Musa Bagos has said the Plateau State Governor, Simon Lalong, who is the Director General of the Ahmed Bola Tinubu Presidential campaign will not be able to deliver the state to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), in 2023.


Bagos, the Deputy Chairman of the House Committee on Anti Corruption who made the claims in Abuja on Monday, said the youths have taken a direction which requires that all political parties work hard to get votes for their candidates.


“I want to let you know that the people of Plateau are waiting for February 25, 2023, to pass their verdict on Governor Lalong and his presidential candidate, Ahmed Bola Tinubu.


“I can assure you that every candidate will get votes according to his performance, the governor has failed Plateau people in all areas since 2015, that is why he cannot deliver Plateau State to the APC and Presidential elections, being a DG will not change the decision of the Youths and Plateau electorate.”


Bagos who currently represents Jos South/Jos East Federal Constituency of Plateau said apart from the poor performance of APC at both Plateau and the national level, the youths are now, more than ever, ready to take back their country.


“Remember, the youths constitute more than 60 per cent of the electorates, and by the way, how can a party that has kept our youths, the students at home for more than half a year get votes from the same people who have been denied their right to education, the same group of Nigerians who have no jobs, people who are pauperised, how can they vote for the APC?


“How can the youths whose parents and relatives have been killed by terrorists and bandits, who have been displaced, give their votes again to failed promises? This is simply impossible”, he said.


On whether the Labour Party candidate, Peter Obi stands a chance in the coming election, the lawmaker acknowledged the efforts of the youths who are mobilizing for the former Anambra governor, saying: “Honestly, even my party the PDP has a lot of work to do to convince the youthful voters because the youths are working tirelessly for any possible options on candidates not party.”


“I believe that after careful analysis and strategic considerations, the youths will make the right choice, not based on emotions but on logical consideration of the different voting blocks in the country”, he added.
