Jeremiah Useni of The Peoples Democratic Party’s gubernatorial candidate in Plateau State decides to choose Benedict Shignugul as his running mate.
This was announced by Yakubu Chocho the PDP Organising Secretary. Chocho explained that after a lot of deliberation amongst the party members, Shignugul was picked from a list of nine nominees.
The flag bearer was given the liberty to decide whoever he wanted, but chose to involve the party in deciding who to run with.
Mr Shignugul received assent because he was the same Mwagwavwul stock as the incumbent Deputy Governor, Sonni Tyoden. While Jeremiah Useni is the former chairman of Mangu Local Government.
He served as Special Adviser to former Governor Joshua Dariye on Health Matters and was later appointed as Chairman, Governing Council, of the Plateau State Health Management Board.
