Chief Damishi Sango, Plateau PDP Chairman and former sports minister, has been kidnapped by by yet to be identified persons.
The Publicity Secretary of the PDP in Plateau State, John Akans, confirmed the demand.
The incident was said to have occured while they were in transit from Jos to Abuja in preparations for the party's national convention.
Sango was abducted alongside a one-time factional state Chairman of the PDP in Pateau State, Emmanuel Mangni.
"Yes, it is true, the abductors of Hon Damishi T. Sango are demanding a ransom of N100m", he said.
"The family spoke with him and he assured them that he is safe". None of them have been released.

She then sent it to a script consultant, which she claims set the wheels in motion for her script to get stolen. The film, directed by David Fincher , was based on Gillian Flynn's novel of the same name.
Mapis, however, said that no one had contacted the family so far.
"They are still with their abductors.We are waiting to see whether the kidnappers will reduce the ransom tomorrow. I'm on my way to Abuja". It was the security operatives that told the family that their breadwinner had been kidnapped because the auto that was abandoned drew the attention of the security operatives.
He said the Plateau Command was working in synergy with the Kaduna office to rescue the victims and possibly arrest those behind the incident.
"They told us that the vehicle was with them and there was no occupant".
In a telephone interview yesterday, Muktar said "the Inspector General of Police's (IG's) Anti-Kidnapping Team and the Special Tactical Squad (STS) have swung into action to recue the victims when we received a distress call at about 6p.m on Wednesday about the incident, which occurred along Kagarko-Jere road". "We are just so anxious and confused", he said. He urged security agencies to intensify efforts to ascertain the fate of the victims and rescue them.
