The Plateau State capital, Jos, is witnessing palpable tension due to the non-inclusion of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on the ballot papers for the rerun elections for the Plateau North senatorial seat and Bassa/Jos North federal constituency slated for Saturday.

The Intra Party Advisory Council (IPAC) in the state has frowned at the decision by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to exclude one of the top political parties in the contest, saying the decision is unreasonable and unacceptable.

Mohammed Kudu Haruna, the INEC National Commissioner in charge of Plateau, Kaduna, Nasarawa, and the Federal Capital Territory, was at the central bank to receive sensitive and non-sensitive materials for distribution to the local government areas.

The rerun elections were slated across six local government areas of Barkin-Ladi, Bassa, Jos North, Jos South, Riyom, and Jos East, respectively.
