Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Plateau State has presented certificates of returns to 24 newly elected members of the state House of Assembly.
The newly elected lawmakers include 13 members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and 11 members of All the Progressives Congress (APC).

Speaking on the occasion, INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner in the state, Godwin Kwanga, appealed to the winners to be magnanimous in victory by extending their hands of fellowship to the losers.
The INEC commissioner also urged them to provide good governance by tackling developmental challenges confronting the people to justify their confidence in them.

Responding on behalf of the members, Majority Leader of the state House of Assembly and member representing Riyom, Daniel Dem, promised that the members would do whatever they can to move Plateau forward in the new dispensation.
