Thirty-eight years Alex Ladan has prescribed a comprehensive ideological turn around as antidote to the troubles on the Plateau, lamenting that the broom revolution of the current All Progressives Congress, APC, has failed.
Ladan, who is contesting the governorship election on the platform of the Alliance for New Nigeria, ANN, in Plateau State, noted the vision of the founding fathers of the state had been abandoned due to bad leadership.
He said that he has what it takes to re-position the state in such a way that every citizen will take pride in the state, not tribe and contribute immensely to its development. He stated that the office of the Governor should not be used to desecrate the common heritage of the people but to foster friendship and brotherhood, stressing that if elected into office, he will ensure the State returns to the good path which its founding fathers laid.
He lamented the insecurity in the State but maintained that as a responsible person, he would not blame people and look for who should have done what but would rise to the occasion and salvage the situation. Declaring his intention to vie for the office before his supporters in Jos, the 38 years old Ladan said,
“We are planting a seed which the world will hear about its fruits. My administration would be a revolutionary government in tandem with modernity that will set the template for a greater Plateau. My vision is for a Plateau state that is well governed with stability, peace, and security for all of its citizens and inhabitants.
Earlier, the State Chairman of the Party, Senlat Garba, said new Party is set to offer Nigerians a new taste of democratic dividends as “Nigerians are now tired of the old order, our Party is poised to take the political space by storm and give the Nigerian people a credible alternative they have been yearning.”
