2023: We’ll Run All-Inclusive Government – Yilwatda, APC Guber Candidate


Plateau All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate Dr Nentawe Yilwatda has said he will run a free, fair and all-inclusive government, where Plateau youths will be engaged and empowered to become economically self-reliant.

Yilwatda disclosed this on Thursday while presenting his running mate, Hon Pam Bot-Mang to the Jos South traditional rulers, held at the palace of Dagwom Rwey of Jos South, Da. Ngah Dangyang.

He explained that Pam Bot-Mang was not picked as the running mate because he is Berom from Jos South but because of his track record of integrity, self-reliance and humility.

Yilwatda noted that his relationship with Bot-Mang started during his secondary school days 40 years ago when he served him diligently for four years as a school boy.

He praised the Berom nation for grooming and raising credible children who are God’s fearing and noted that he was also raised by a Berom man who mounded and impacted him positively with good character to face societal challenges.

“We will engage, empower and employ Plateau youths to enable them to access 10 per cent of our resources to grow their businesses and become economically self-reliant.

“We will be transparent, free, fair and run an all-inclusive government while the youths will be mentored and appointed as commissioners and other positions.”

He acknowledged the raising wave of insecurity, kidnapping and other forms of criminality that has ravaged the state and said stringent measures would be taken to address the menace.

The Dagwom Rwey of Jos South, Da Ngah Dangyang who received Pam Bot-Mang praised his styling leadership quality and said history is about to repeat itself where he is preparing to fill the vacuum of his late father, who was a deputy governor to former Governor Joshua Dariye.

He urged them to work together as partners in progress by complementing each other and prayed for their success during the election.

The candidate for deputy governor, Pam Bot-Mang who spoke earlier, appreciated the Berom nation for supporting him and said he will not disappoint the Berom nation and the people of Plateau State if entrusted with the mandate.

He described the visit as significant and said the APC place a high premium on Jos South Local Government Area where they are trusted with the deputy governorship ticket, Plateau North Senatorial ticket and the House of Representatives ticket.

Bot-Mang solicited the support of the people and assured them that if elected, they will right the wrongs made in the past for the prosperity of the people.

Chairman of Jos South Local Government Area and House of Representatives candidate for Jos South/Jos East Federal Constituency Hon Gideon Davou said the Berom nation is blessed with the State party chairmanship position, deputy governorship candidate and a senatorial candidate, and urged the people to support the APC during the general election.

The team also visited the Berom Educational and Cultural Organization (BECO), Berom Women Development Association (BWDA) and the Berom Youth Moulders-Association (BYM) and canvassed support ahead of the 2023 election.

The BECO President, Da Gyang Dudu, said the Berom people are accommodating and hospital, and urged them to manage the ethnic and religious diversity in the state.

He urged Yilwatda to work assiduously to give Plateau State its identity of peace, and unity and wish him well during the election.
