A retired Lt. General in the Nigerian Army, Jeremiah Timbut Useni, has said he will restructure Plateau State, end insecurity, if elected governor of Plateau in the coming general election in 2019.
Useni was speaking in Abuja after he submitted his expression of interest and nomination form, at the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), National Secretariat, Wadata House, Abuja on Wednesday.
The battle for the number one seat in Plateau has begun with candidates submitting their nomination forms, preparing for the contest ahead.
Useni, who is also a former Minister of the Federal Capital Territory Abuja, is promising to provide free education, boost Agriculture and attract foreign investors in the State.
Some of his supporters described the General as a man whom the cap fits.
For now, about 16 aspirants of the PDP have collected nomination forms for the party’s governorship seat.
They however, called on the party leadership to ensure credible governorship primaries.
If nominated, Jeremiah Useni may be facing Governor Simon Lalong who is for now the only aspirant seeking re-election under the All Progressives Congress (APC).
