Many Jos residents, mostly youths, who are supporters of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), on Wednesday, trooped to the Rwang Pam stadium, the venue of the All Progressives Congress (APC)’s campaign flag-off to engage in a cleansing exercise.
Their action came barely 24 hours after the APC presidential candidate flagged off his presidential campaign in the Plateau capital.

Several of the support groups of the PDP who were among the youths, said their action was to show their commitment to voting out the APC in Plateau, in the next political dispensation.
Kamru Sani, the Director General, Atiku Motivational Movement, who made this known, said the action was meant to sweep out what the APC brought to the state.
Sani stated that Plateau is a stronghold of the PDP, adding that the party is set to return to its winning ways.
“We are here to sweep out all they brought here, as PDP is for Plateau and Nigeria.
“The party is set to be on winning ways again, as it has shown that it is the true party for the state.
“The party will bring relief to the sufferings that citizens of the state and Nigeria have had to endure in the last seven years,” he said.
Also speaking, Mohammed Hassan, national coordinator, PDP youth Amendment Movement, said the movement would protect the future of the youths in Nigeria.
Hassan said Nigerians are witnesses to the type of leadership experienced in the last seven years, calling on them to vote for PDP in 2023. (NAN)
