2023: Tight Race in Plateau Governorship Polls
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is expected to begin the collation of results for the governorship elections in Plateau state on Sunday.
Dr. Nentawe Yilwatda of the All progress congress, APC, Barr. Caleb Mutfwang of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP and Dr Patrick Dakum of the Labour Party are locked in a tight race as coalition in some local government areas apparently have been concluded.
The election in Plateau state was largely peaceful.
It is clear that the voter apathy witnessed in Saturday's election in Plateau state appear to have dealt a huge blow to the traditional strongholds of the PDP and APC going by the numbers turned in so far at the local government collation centers.
Pankshin, Mangu and Kanke local government areas which are the the LGAs of origin of the frontline governorship candidates turned in mixed results as the three political parties had made projections to win convincingly in the three local government areas or at least secure substantial number of votes from the LGAs.
Jos South and Riyom which host the three deputy governorship candidates of the Berom extraction may also play a huge role in determining the general outcome of the ballots.
