Jonah Jang declared intention to run for 2019 presidential election, promised to beat Buhari





Former Governor of Plateau State and serving senator representing
Plateau North in the National Assembly, Senator Jonah Jang has declared
his intention to contest for the presidential primary on the platform of
the Peoples Democratic Party.




A close associate of Senator Jang, who was a former Secretary to
Plateau State Government, Professor Shedrach Best, made this known in an
interview with the Tribune.




He said the former governor has submitted his letter of intent to the
National Secretariat of the PDP in Abuja and also made a declaration at
his constituency.




According to him, Senator Jang joined the race after a wide
consultation in the country especially in the Middle Belt which is his
immediate constituency as far as the presidential race is a concern.




“After he submitted his letter of intent to contest at the National
Secretariat of the PDP in Abuja, he had a wide consultation and meeting
with his followers in his constituency and got the nod of the people to
contest for the number one seat.




“Senator Jang decided to throw his hat into the ring having examined
the state of the nation especially the insecurity, energy, bad economy
and lack of purposeful direction by those in leadership positions in the
country. He joined the race primarily to make a difference,” he said.




Professor Best, who said Jang had the full support of the Middle Belt
for his aspiration added that the fact that the geopolitical zone has
not enjoyed representation through electoral governance further
propelled Senator Jang to indicate his interest to contest.




“PDP has zoned presidency to the North, the North Central otherwise
called the Middle Belt has not enjoyed representation through electoral
governance, it is the belief of Senator Jang that since North Central is
part of the North it should be given an opportunity this time around,”
he said.





Professor Best further disclosed that the former governor will start
campaign this week from Plateau State, where it will be taken to other
parts of the country.
