Hired Youths By PDP Who Were Not Paid For Welcoming Jang Turned Jos Bloody Over The Weekend–Progressive Support Group By Yakubu Busari, Jos
Coordinator of Progressive Support Group for Good Governance, PYSGOGG, Comrade Solomon Yakubu Ndam has disclosed that the attack and burning of two presidential buses and police station in Jos was perpetrated by aggrieved hired PDP supporters who welcomed Governor Jonah David Jang at the airport and were not paid.
Ndam made this known in a press statement following the report by The Sun Newspaper in a story published today and titled; “PDP accuses APC supporters of burning President Jonathan campaign vehicles reported by Taiwo Amodu.
According to the statement, the People Democratic Party presidential campaign organization has alleged that supporters of the All Progressives Congress were behind the dastardly act at Zololo Junction along Bauchi road in Jos North Local Government Area of Plateau state.
He further said; “we the Progressive youth support group for good governance want to clearly set the record straight and clear the air on the claims of the PDP that some of our youths engaged the security and burnt down vehicles including campaign flag.
We described these claims as baseless, laughable, and unattainable and a story fit only to the marines, because every reasonable Nigerian knows clearly that what APC stands for: peace, unity, fairness, justice, equity and progress.
Ndam condemned in totality the act of criminality, stressing further that APC youth have absolutely no reason whatsoever to engage them in any violence act which will jeopardize the peace and unity of Plateau state, a struggle which they have so much committed themselves to ensure peace return to the state.
Yakubu Ndam advised families to put their house together by channelling there resources and energy towards settling the cracked and fragile internal issue because Plateau citizens and Nigerians at large have ride-passed the era of cheap propaganda to earn sympathy votes of the electorates, the records and trial marks are visible to speak volumes.
We are committed toward ensuring a peaceful, free and fair election come February 2015 and will not be deterred by these distractions and propaganda.
He called on citizens of plateau state to come out and rally their support for change.
The Plateau state Police command worried by the ugly incident involving the burning of the two campaign vehicles of President Goodluck in Jos warned against such act of lawlessness as such violence behavior is unwarranted and uncalled for.
DSP Abuh Emmanuel said, the command condemned such act of vandalism and warned mischievous makers to desist henceforth ,members of the public are enjoined to be vigilant as efforts have being intensified to fish out those behind the unholy act and bring them to justice.
