2023: Plateau APC candidate seeks support
The deputy governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Commissioner for Works in Plateau, Mr Pam Bot-Mang, has solicited the support of youths to move the state to greater heights in 2023.
Bot-Mang made the appeal on Tuesday in Jos while receiving a meritous award by Independent Publishers Association (IPA), Plateau state chapter.
He urged youths to join hands with the party towards achieving victory in the polls as it had realistic and youth oriented programmes to improve the standard of living for citizens.
“I want to solicit the support of the youths in Plateau state to join hands with the APC to ensure we clinch victory in the 2023 elections to move Plateau to greater heights.
“The governorship candidate, myself and the party have realistic and youth oriented programmes that will improve their standard of living.
“I wish to say here that my service to humanity did not start when I became commissioner for works but I have mentored and given employment to youths who are also employers of labour today in different fields.
“Plateau citizens will not regret if we are elected into office because will we bring to bear our experience and youthful knowledge on ICT to drive the state to a land of prosperity,” he said.
Bot-Mang appreciated the executive and stakeholders of the APC for giving him the opportunity to serve as the running mate for Dr Nentawa Yilwatda ahead of the 2023 election.
He pledged his loyalty to the party’s candidate and Plateau people, assuring them that the state would witness massive development if elected into office.
Commissioner for Information and Communication, Mr Dan Manjang, in a remark, said that the choice of Bot-Mang as the deputy governorship candidate would add electoral value to the APC ticket in 2023.
Chairman of Independent Publishers Association, Mr Shabul Mazadu while presenting the award, described Bot-Mang as an accomplished technocrat who has served Plateau and the country at different levels.
He said that the choice of Bot-Mang for the award was because of his humility, service to humanity and his excellent performance in turning the fortunes of Plateau to the advantage of the people.
He noted that the award was to spur him to deliver more fruitful and people oriented services that would impact humanity positively for the greater good of the state.
