A renowned Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) and former Dean of Law, University of Jos, Professor Dakas Clement James Dakas, has stated that the overwhelming number of technocrats and grassroots politicians registering or re-validating their membership with the All Progressives Congress(APC) would consolidate on the present administration’s agenda for holistic transformation and sustainable democracy in the country.
Speaking after re-validating membership of the party at his ward in Katul of Mangu Local Government Area of Plateau State, Prof Dakas also appreciated the massive turnout of credible men, women and youth, noting that this development would further fortify the party’s chances of making a huge impact during the forthcoming general elections in the country.
The former University Don, who had previously served as the Attorney-General of Plateau State, disclosed that it was a new dawn in the history of the APC to re-validate the membership of the party and also register new members as the turnout of new members from opposition political parties has been encouraging since the commencement of the exercise across the nation.
On his rumoured gubernatorial ambition in Plateau State, Prof Dakas explained that as an experienced lawyer and Senior Advocate of Nigeria, (SAN), it was not yet time for him to make such proclamation as restrictions on political campaigns have not been lifted.
According to him, “we are for now, within the framework of the law, consulting widely across the entire political spectrum; we have found favour before God and we are finding favour in the sight of our people. At the right time, we will let the good people of Plateau State know where we stand.”
Prof Dakas urged the citizens of the country to take ample opportunity of the registration exercise to re-validate their membership of the party so as to join hands with others on the platform to move the nation forward.
Speaking earlier, the Chairman of the Stakeholders Forum, Sehenshak Dafohol and Councillor representing Jipal Ward, Hon. Barrister Emmanuel Daniel, both described as successful the ongoing registration and re-validation exercise and thanked Prof Dakas for his service and encouragement to the people of the area.
