•Says Dakum not a Labour Party member By Golok Nanmwa, Jos  Governorship candidate of the Labour Party in Plateau State, Ambassador Yohanna Margif, has said that he is still the authentic flag bearer of the party in the state, urging the people to disregard anyone parading himself as the new candidate of the party. Addressing newsmen in Jos on Sunday, Margif said no doubt, some individuals had approached me requesting that I relinquish the hard earned ticket to them but being the serious minded Politician that I am, I felt it will be unwise to toy with the party mandate and the peoples trust hence my stern refusal to grant their wishes. In his words "Surprisingly while I was strategically going on with my campaigns , My attention was  drawn to a purported and illegal primary election by some disgruntled political elements who disguised themselves as members of Labour Party in Plateau State in which one Dr Patrick Dakum emerges as my replacement."
