Mr Peter Shepsuk, Public Relation Officer (PRO) of the PDP told newsmen in an interview in Jos that the party  unilaterally sacked the elected chairmen and councilors of the 17 local was committed to persuading the APC-led government to respect tenets of democracy.
“As a party, we have tried to persuade Governor Lalong to see reasons to respect democratic norms and the court injunction but to no avail. We have decided to put our faith in God and the courts to help resolve the impasse between us and Lalong over the sacking of the duly elected council chairmen,” he said.
Shepsuk expressed the hope that President Mahammadu Buhari would intervene and save the face of the APC led administration, which he said had promised change to the Nigerian populace.
