“I did not contest for glamour, I came out because I wanted to work for PDP.

“As a businessman, I don’t go into ventures that are not profitable. I have looked and weighed Plateau and I know that PDP has a chance in 2023,” he stated.

He commended the leadership of PDP for initiating reconciliation meetings, which he described as timely.

He further said that some aspirants were aggrieved but the truth remained that only one person would emerge from such a contest.

“I am one of the persons that people think I should go to court but of course, immediately after the election, I said that I will not go to court.

“I know myself, I know my capacity and I would have won, but unfortunately, it didn’t go my way.

“It doesn’t mean it’s the end of the world. So I am one of the first persons that congratulated the person that won.

“I told myself that I needed to move forward. And as a party if we must win, reconciliation is what we must do more at this stage,” he added.

Ropshik promised that he would personally work hard his capacity to assuage some aggrived persons so that the party could move forward.
