Amb. Fidelis Tapgun, a one time governor of Plateau State and a well known People Democratic Party, PDP chieftain, has made shocking revelations regarding the outcome of the governorship polls.
Speaking to newsmen in his jos country home on Tuesday, April 21 2015, he revealed how he worked for the All Progressive Congress (APC) in the just concluded elections, even though he did not openly defect to the party. While speaking, he accused the erstwhile ruling party of working against itself.
In his words: “I contributed to the success of APC in the state because my party failed. My party failed to zone the governorship to the South and that’s the greatest error made by the party. APC fortunately zoned the governorship to the South, and quite naturally, it won.
“Contributing to APC victory was not because we were gratified, it was not hidden at all; it was not anything we did behind the scene. We openly said we were going to work against the PDP in Plateau State and we did to the end.
“We are PDP; we are not going out and we did it to the end. So the success of APC is on the platform of PDP and it was not anything we are ashamed of. It is good to show people that whenever you don’t perform, you will be kicked out.”
We are determined that the party will not die. We are reformed PDP and Jang’s party or Raymond Dabo (PDP chairman in Plateau) party. There are no two factions, there is only one and we are going to reform it.”
