All Progressives Congress (APC) senatorial candidate for Plateau Central, Diket Plang, has said that his desire to be a senator is indigenous to him.

All Progressives Congress (APC) senatorial candidate for Plateau Central, Diket Plang, has said that his desire to be a senator is indigenous to him.

Plang, who was a councillor and later chairman of Pankshin Local Council, House of Assembly member and Special Adviser to Governor Simon Lalong, contested the senate seat in 2015 and lost.

He told journalists in Jos, yesterday, that he was familiar with the lawmaking terrain from the grassroots.

Describing his opponents at the primary as good citizens, he said: “They bought forms for N20 million each but withdrew for me. All the 330 delegates voted for me. I see them as too magnanimous. They are kind to me. I am the youngest of them all. I will want to prove to them that their voluntary withdrawal will not be in vain.”

On his preparation to square it up with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, he said: “I think my opponent is on teaching practice. He is just coming in. He is a novice. Let him test Plang and let us see.

Wherever my seniors stopped, I should build and grow higher and I know that it is their prayer for me to grow.”
