The event took place at the Dialogue, Reconciliation and Peace (DREP) Centre in Kwang Jos, the state capital.
PDP, which is the leading opposition party in the state, did not participate in the exercise and no reason for the party’s absence was given.
It, however, held a rally yesterday at the Polo field to canvass support for its candidates in the by-elections, where all the party’s bigwigs in the state including its national chairman, Dr. Iyorchia Ayu, attended.
