Some Plateau State residents in Jos residents, who are supporters of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), have caused quite a stir in the city.
The residents, mainly youths, yesterday, trooped to the Rwang Pam stadium, venue of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign flag-off to engage in cleansing exercise.
The APC had flagged off its presidential campaign in the state capital on Tuesday.
Several PDP support groups, which 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, director general, Atiku Motivational Movement, said the action was meant to sweep out what the APC brought to the state.
He stated that Plateau State is a stronghold of the PDP, and was 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.
Mohammed Hassan, national coordinator, PDP youth Amendment Movement, said the movement would protect the future of the youths in the country.
He said Nigerians were witnesses to the type of leadership experienced in the last seven years, and called on the electorate to vote PDP in 2023.
