Organizers of the Plateau Gubernatorial debate fixed for January 29, 2019 say participants at the challenge will be drawn through online polls.

Only the top four candidates approved by the online voters will take part in the challenge, the Plateau Gubernatorial Debate group said, Monday.

According to a communication to the candidates signed by Dr. Daniel Meshak and Mr. Nanlep Kumle, Chairman and Secretary of the group respectively, "it will be impossible to have all 22 Governorship candidates on one stage for a 2-hour live debate," hence the pre-qualification polls.

The polls for all gubernatorial candidates in the state according to them therefore holds from 6am local time on 12th and 11:59pm on 23rd December, 2018.

The polls will take place on the group's Facebook page: www.facebook.com/plateaudebate.
