"The outcome is a call to unity for all our stakeholders to return to the various constituencies to begin to engage with the people in order to vote in a new paradigm which guarantees better life for our people.
"The PDP family has shown that unity of purpose is a core ingredient in achieving set goals.
"We must therefore return to the trenches as we prepare for the secondary election, knowing that we are up against a ruthless opponent which stoke in trade is propaganda without performance.
"The Plateau people must show their dissatisfaction with non-performance and begin to mobilise, toward aligning with those who have not only shown empathy but are more concerned about guaranteeing a secured, peaceful and developed plateau for now and the on-coming generations."
