The Legacy Group, Greater Together Network, a brainchild of Late Sen. GNS Pwajok has held a strategic meeting with PDP Governorship Aspirants in Plateau State with the desire to unite them for victory in forthcoming elections.

The group at the meeting appreciated the efforts put in place by the PDP Plateau State Executives under the leadership of Hon. D. T. Sango, believing his capacity is capable of leading the party to victory.

The Greater Together Network at the end of the meeting condemned in strong terms the worsening insecurity in Plateau State and across the Nation which has led to loss of lives and property

The group commended the efforts of the Federal government in the fight against corruption but observed that it should be inclusive.

It frowned at the inability of Plateau State Independent Electoral Commission to conduct Local Government Elections in the State to get elected representatives at the third tier of government.

The Greater Together Network Council commended the passage of the Not To Young To Run Bill into Law, a Bill sponsored by a PDP Member, Rep. Tony Nwulu.

It also raised alarm on the number of uncollected Permanent Voters’ Cards and admonished stakeholders to drive campaign to sensitize the public on the need to get their processed PVCs.

After deliberations bordering on strengthening the Greater Together Network, the Peoples Democratic Party and the state of the nation, the following resolutions were arrived at:

On this not we condemn the illegal detention and violation of the fundamental rights of Distinguish Senator Jonah David Jang.
