Jonah Jang Declares His Senate Seat Vacant From 2019 by quickberry(m): 8:49am On Aug 10
JOS — Senator Jonah Jang has opted out of a second term and has declared his Plateau North Senatorial Seat open for a successor.


The immediate political future of the one term senator remains, however, unclear. Senator Jang had lately mooted the idea of running for the 2019 presidential contest on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP but that aspiration has yet to get traction and it remains uncertain if he would pursue the ambition.

At a meeting with PDP stakeholders from the Plateau North Senatorial zone held at WAYE Foundation, Doi, Jos South local government area, Jang disclosed that the Senate seat would be vacant in 2019 and left for people of Plateau North to decide who should represent them in the Red chamber.

Though nocturnal meetings are being held by aspirants for the seat but only the member representing Barkin Ladi/Riyom Constituency in the House of Representatives, Hon. Istifanus Gyang has officially made his intention known to the PDP and his supporters.

Vanguard gathered that others nursing ambition for the seat from the All Progressives Congress, APC include the member representing Jos South/Jos East federal constituency in the House of Representatives, Edward Pwajok, the current Secretary to the Plateau State Government, Rufus Bature, former Chief of Staff during Jang’s administration, Francis Bot and former Speaker of the Plateau State House of Assembly Hon. Isa Song.

The PDP, Northern Zone Leader, Mr. Chris Hassan, said: “The Senator called the meeting to meet with all of us from the zone. He made known his intention not to re-contest the Senatorial seat and asked us as a Party to work together and ensure unity.

“We are giving a level playing ground to all the aspirants; there will be nothing like the issue of zoning. Zoning is not going to be discussed; we are leaving everything open for all interested people to contest.

What the Senator asked was that we should quickly convene a meeting of all PDP stakeholders in the northern zone and deliberate on the seat but as a Party, we are leaving the seat open to whosoever is qualified to go and contest.

“He did not categorically declare his intention to contest the presidential seat but in a fortnight from now, he will do the formal declaration for the Presidential seat.”

Anybody can wake up any day and aspire for presidency na.

Your writeup is about presidency, but the caption is about declaring his Senate seat vacant come 2019. Declaring his Senate seat vacant doesn't mean he is/must aspire for presidency.


By the way, why publicize the news if his decision is uncertain??

Jang Presidential declaration will shape the narrative and preference of Northern Christians in PDP as well as some southern Muslims.

Old age has come and he's decided to heed the call instead of falling asleep in the Senate with no bill to show.
Buhari should be resting as well if not that the younger ones were looting the treasury meant to build infrastructure for our present and future generations. grin

Make Una wait......how come we haven't heard about Fulani herdsmens lately, not that I miss the way they kill people but I must admit that ever since some people have decamp, we haven't heard anything like herdsmens attack.....is that the herdsmens are watching the political transfer to other clubs at the moment that make them hold the killings?

Seems everything is a script written by one or group of producers.

Good grin, buhari north west, kwankwaso north west, atiku north east, lamido north west, tambuwa north west, Jang north central. 2019 would let us know if the north are truly the majority in an election as speculated through false census and underage voting. One thing is certain in nigerian political history, southern aspirant has won the presidency 5 times( azikwe, MKO,obasanjo*2, jonathan). And the northerners through underage voting and zoning 4 times. Now that we have north against north, underage voting and multiple voting would be fought against especially places like kano

Herdsmen are apprehensive. The future seems uncertain for their patrons and matrons.

The North will not have an upper hand against the south in the Geo-politics of Nigeria today without the help of Middle belt people...from coups to reprisal coups, middle belt people shaped the future of the Hausa/Fulani grip on power in Nigeria yet they are treated worse than even IGBOs by mallams.

Initially herdsman attack was not giving them required result.
They went political by removal of key obstructors in their way like benue govr,senate president.
Things are sketchy now,so there is silence.
As soon as the rumble settles, they will decide what to do
