Plateau PDP raises alarm over plan to disrupt tomorrow’s presidential campaign in Jos

The Plateau State PDP Campaign Council has raised the alarm that certain
hoodlums are planning to disrupt its presidential campaign rally scheduled for
Saturday January 12, 2019.
The PDP Presidential Candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar is leading national
officers of the party to Jos to officially launch the campaign for Nigeria’s
presidency in the 2019 general election.
The State Campaign Council, presided over by party Chairman Hon DT Sango,
says it has received credible information that sponsored groups are preparing to
harrass, intimidate and attack PDP officials, members and stakeholders
attending the rally.
The party therefore appeals to security agencies to act accordingly to allow for
a peaceful presidential outing.
It cautions that it will not tolerate hoodlums trying to replicate what happened
on Tuesday January 8, 2019, in Mangu after the flag off when the peaceful
passage of party members was violently interrupted in Mangu town between the
old market and the Divisional Police Office.
PDP assures the people of Plateau that it will continue to pursue the path of
peace and decency, and to focus on issue-based campaigning for the
development of Plateau.
The party will not allow political provocations to derail its commitment to the
people of Plateau who are increasingly getting frustrated by a ruling party that
is daily resorting to thuggery to prove its incompetence and shallowness while
allowing the good people to face endless suffering.
Gubernatorial Candidate of the party Senator JT Useni pledged to give every
support to have a very successful presidential campaign.
He called on the people of Plateau to unite and vote in PDP in the coming
election to have a secure, united and prosperous state.
Among Council members who attended today’s meeting are the gubernatorial
candidate, Senator JT Useni and his running mate Dr James Dalok, former
Senate Deputy President Senator Ibrahim Mantu, former Minister of Water
Resources, Hon Sarah Ochekpe; former Governor of Plateau State, Sir Fidelis
Tapgun and former gubernatorial candidates of the party who contested at the
primaries with Senator JT Useni. Others were senatorial aspirants, and
Chairmen of State Campaign Committees.
