Yero said he had since obtained nomination form from the National Secretariat of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Abuja.

He urged the people to disregard any insinuation that he would be stopped from contesting in the election, saying such speculations were aimed at misleading the public.

Yero also urged the people to support the PDP in the next election, saying it remained the only party with the ability and willingness to deliver on the dividends of democracy.

On the on-going projects inherited from late Gov. Patrick Yakowa, Yero re-assured the people of the state that none of them would be left uncompleted.

He said it was the responsibility of all and sundry to ensure that there was no security breach in the state.

He cautioned youths against reprisals and urged them to imbibe the spirit of forgiveness to stem the menace.

The traditional rulers he visited included the Chief of Moro’a, Mallam Tagwai Sambo; the Chief of Kagoro, Mr Ufuwai Bonet; the Emir of Jama’a, Alh. Muhammadu Muhammadu, and the Kpop Ham, Danladi Maude.
