Former Plateau State Governor and serving Nigerian Senator, Jonah Jang wants the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential flagbearer, Abubakar Atiku to make the security, welfare, and prosperity of the Middle Belt a priority in his proposed government.

Jang in a statement after losing the Presidential Primaries to the ex Vice President said the Middle Belt people have sacrificed "so much" the country "but have gotten death and destruction of their properties and farmlands in return."

"Your excellency, when you get to power and you would get there by the grace of God, let their security, welfare, and prosperity be of utmost concern to you" he said.

Jang congratulated Mr. Atiku for his "deserved" victory, saying he has accepted "in totality" the outcome of the Primary Elections.

He equally saluted the Uche Secondus led National Working Committee of the party and the Convention Planning Committee chaired by His Excellency Ifeanyi Okowa as well as the Governor of Delta State, for a hitch free process which he said was free and fair "by all standards of scrutiny".

"It will go down in history as one of the very best Conventions in our history as a political party," Jang said.
