Former Minister of Sports and Youth Development, Hon Damishi Sango, has emerged the Plateau State Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) following the state congress election which held on Tuesday at the Treasures Inn, Jos the state capital.

Sango polled 758 votes to defeat former member of the House of Representatives (Jos South/Jos East constituency) Hon Bitrus Kaze, who got 222 votes.

Announcing the winner, the Chairman of Congress committee, Hon. Mustapha Habib Zanna, particularly acknowledged the maturity of the contestants in which they conducted themselves peacefully.

Zanna, who described the congress as a family meeting to review the party’s performances in the last general election, lamented that for the first time in 16 years PDP has become an opposition party.

He however said he was encouraged that when he went round, he observed that the party was still very much on ground.
