The Plateau State Chairman of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Hon. Damishi Sango says the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) is nearly dead in the state.

Speaking during the Presidential campaign visit of Gombe State Governor, Ibrahim Dankwambo on Monday in Jos the Plateau State capital, Sango said the poor performance of the ruling party has paralyzed activities at its Secretariat.

"The APC Secretariat is like a cemetery. Nothing is happening there," Sango said.

He assured that Plateau will set the pace in returning the PDP to power, while stressing the need for Nigerians to "bundle" President Muhammadu Buhari out of office during the 2019 elections.

Earlier in his remarks, the serving Nigerian Governor and Presidential hopeful, Dankwambo said Nigerians have lost confidence in the present administration in the country, hence the need for change of leadership.

He attributed Nigeria's economic downturn, rising insecurity and unemployment among others to lack of leadership.

Dankwambo insisted that for Nigeria to progress, the right persons must be appointed to head relevant offices without prejudice.

"We will appoint credible hands and not our nephews, in-laws and cousins into office," he said.

The aspirant maintained that the PDP parades the best hands for the seat of the President, saying "All the aspirants are better than what we have today," he said.

"The other parties didn't know they will get to leadership.

"They are used to opposition, they are used to propaganda that's why when they got to power, all they have been doing is propaganda," he said.

He pledged to revamp the Nigerian socioeconomic landscape giving priority to education.
