Governor Simon Bako Lalong of Plateau State has congratulated Professor Nora Dadu’ut, candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for making history as the first female Senator elect in Plateau State.
Prof. Nora Dadu’ut who emerged winner of the Plateau South Senatorial District bye-election defeated her closest rival, George Daika of the PDP for the nod to fill the vacuum created by the death of the former occupant of the seat late Senator Ignatius Longjan.
Governor Lalong said the victory of Prof. Nora Dadu’ut was not surprising as the APC is well rooted in the whole state particularly the Southern Senatorial District.
He congratulated Prof. Nora whom he believes will give quality representation to the people of the Southern Senatorial District and also represent the interest of the state at the red chamber.
He commended INEC and security agencies for working assiduously towards a successful election.
He said the electorate also deserve special commendation for conducting themselves peacefully and ensuring that the execise was devoid of violence and malpractice.
Lalong also called on other political parties and candidates who lost the election to rally round the winner in the best interest of the zone and Plateau State as a whole.
