A group of suspected irate Youths of APC has vandalized Alhaji Sule Lamido’s Presidential Campaign Support office around Kwalwa House in Jos South Local Government Area of Plateau state last Wednesday evening where they destroyed valuable items for electioneering campaign.
The Plateau state chapter of Sule Lamido support group for 2019 Presidential ambition made this call on Thursday while addressing a world press conference on the recent attacks on opposition parties in the state, allegedly being perpetrated by APC.
They challenged the All Progressive Congress, APC to focus and concentrate on good governance and stop harassing and intimidating opposition parties across the country, even as it has been reminded to note that good democracy only thrives with the existence of opposition parties.
According to him,” the plateau state secretary, media group Sadat Garga and the state Public Relations Officer, PRO, Abaukar Mohammad Badu, decried the level at which the opposition parties in the state were being threatened”.
“APC has taken part of the destruction of properties of other political parties, and we will not sit and watch these people truncate democracy.
“When PDP was in power for sixteen years, we were not attacking opposition parties rather, we focused on physical and human development, but to our greatest surprise, in the last few weeks, we have been witnessing a new tradition of pulling down of billboards belonging to PDP, by APC.
“Explaining that on, Wednesday, we close here after 5 pm, and we wake up this morning to realize that the Flex of banners used in this office as symbol for supporters of Sule Lamido 2019 ambition were vandalized and removed and we have reported to the landlord, the police and we got hint of those of who did that and we will soon expose them”.
“When PDP was in power, we did not go after any body’s billboard, but today the ruling party, APC has embarked on a tradition of pulling down of billboards belonging to other political parties.
This is uncivil, uncivilized, undemocratic and barbaric and we must trace this to the root and ensure that those involved are brought to book, he noted “.
He described such action as a bad signal of the entrenchment of democracy and challenged APC to focus attention on good governance, and allow opposition parties to do their bidding.
