Bature said the ruling party has done well in the State by ensuring that the much eluded peace returns, adding that Governor Simon Lalong has also been prompt in paying salaries.

“If what Governor Lalong has done is to restore and maintain peace as well as pay salaries, I think he has done well for the people of Plateau”.

The APC Chairman stated this Wednesday in Jos, during a press briefing with journalists.

According to him: “I am confident that APC will emerge victorious because of the level playing ground we provided for all the aspirants. People will speak through the vote at the primary election and by the grace of God the larger population will elect our party flag bearer come February 26th.

“The party will be heading for indirect primary on February 1, for the eight candidates that bought forms and we will ensure that all candidates are given equal opportunities”, he said.

On the forth coming APC National Convention coming up in Abuja in February, Bature said the State chapter of the party will grace the convention as a united house, saying that the much speculated factions by the opposition party, the PDP, does not exist.

“There has never been a faction in the Plateau APC. It is just a few disgruntled people who felt they were not carried along because of the Congress that was held, but that not withstanding, we have brought everyone to the table and have resolved our issues internally”, the APC Chairman said.
