He said, “Our great party, the PDP, will continue to shine. There’s no vacancy for the opposition in Taraba State because we have done well and we promise to do more as we take the state to the Promised Land. Our determination to retain power come Saturday, March 18, 2023 is a battle of no retreat, no surrender. Our theme is moving forward and as you can see, we are already surging ahead in the poll.”

Earlier in their remarks, the senators-elect said they came with the governorship candidate in their entourage to affirm their commitment to the victory of the PDP.


Manu added that with the dominance of the PDP at the national legislature, the administration of Kefas would enjoy tremendous support needed to move Taraba State forward.

Lau said he would work assiduously to deliver Kefas in the Northern zone because PDP is the only party that can guarantee development.
