Muhammed Abubakar, Reporting

NIGERIA’S under-siege, ravished Plateau State has declared Tuesday November 15 a holiday as President Muhammadu Buhari pays visit to kick off the All Progressives Congress (APC) campaign.

This was disclosed in a terse statement issued by Dan Manjang, Commissioner for Information and Communication of the state.

“This is to inform the public that the President and Commander-In-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR will arrive Plateau State on Tuesday, 15th November, 2022.

“The President is expected to flag-off the All Progressives Party campaign at the Rwang Pam Township Stadium, Jos at 10:00 a.m. same day,” he noted.

According to him, “in view of the traffic congestion that is envisaged and resultant disruption to movement and other activities, His Excellency, the Executive Governor of Plateau Rt. Hon. (Dr) Simon Bako Lalong, KSG, CON has approved that Tuesday 15th November, 2022 be declared as work-free.

“By this declaration therefore, the public is hereby enjoined to come out en masse to give the President a rousing welcome.”

Meanwhile, Stonix News scooped on Monday that the state’s Ministry of Works had hurriedly embarked on a patching exercise on the deplorable road in the state capital where the president will pass.

Communities in the state have been under constant destruction by armed militia men pretending to be herdsmen with no mercy for the vulnerable and farmlands in the past years.
