I Will Accept Consensus If It Favours Me, PDP Guber Aspirant Says 

 

The Taraba State governorship aspirant on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, Victor Bala- Kona, on Wednesday said he will only accept a consensus arrangement if it favours him.

 

Kona, who is the immediate past chairman of the party in the state, stated this while officially declaring his intention to contest the governorship seat in the state.

 

The aspirant, who said he was not aware of any anointed candidate, noted that he was the most qualified person among the governorship aspirants in the state.

 

While fielding questions from journalists, Kona said, “Consensus is discretional. It’s not compulsory. For me, I will only accept the consensus, if it favours me.

 

“I am the most qualified person among the aspirants, so, if there is going to be any consensus, I can only accept it if I am the consensus candidate,” he said.

 

On his plans for the state, Kona said if given the opportunity, his administration will focus on key development areas such as education, agriculture, health, provision of infrastructure, and ensuring the security of lives and property of the people.
