“As we all know, for the past twelve (12) years PDP has missed the chances to fill in at the Federal Constituency of Jalingo, Yorro & Zing until the recent concluded 2023 General Elections.

“As such, we need a bridge builder that can deliver the party in the upcoming fresh election. Some one who is component, relevant, prudent and pious with good leadership quality in the eyes of the electorates of Jalingo, Yorro & Zing Federal Constituency and Hon. Ibrahim Iman has these all”.
