On his part, the State chairman of PDP, Francis Orogu, commended Architect Jafaar for joining the PDP having seen the hardship Nigerians and the people of Nasarawa State have faced in the past years, saying the coming of Jafaar into the PDP will be a big blessing to the party even as the gubernaorial running mate is from the area.
