Jos – The Governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC in Plateau State, Dr. Nentawe Yilwatda has unveiled the State Commissioner for Works, Mr. Pam Botmang as his running mate ahead of the 2023 governorship election.

Mr. Botmang is the son of former Deputy Governor Da Michael Botmang who was in office during Senator Joshua Dariye’s administration.

Yilwatda said the unveiling came after intensive consultations with critical stakeholders in the State, and he is happy to announce Botmang as he is acceptable to all.

Speaking at a brief ceremony held on Wednesday evening at the APC Secretariat in Jos, he said, “I wish to therefore call on the good people of Plateau State to support the choice of Botmang as my running mate. I also enjoin them to come out en-masse to vote for our ticket during the forthcoming 2023 general election. Your mandate in 2023 will enable us to build a peaceful, prosperous, and greater Plateau State.”

He insisted that zoning alone should not determine the choice of candidates but integrity and value should also be considered and thanked the APC for finding him worthy to fly the Party’s flag, promising not to let the party down as he is working to unite the party faithful so that everyone would contribute to the Party’s victory in the 2023 general elections.

Speaking earlier the State Chairman of the Party, Mr. Rufus Bature, assured that the campaign for their Governorship election would be rancor-free because “APC has the best Governorship candidate, and we would market him to the people of Plateau.”
