The March 11 governorship and state House of Assembly polls, Youths in Plateau state have been urged to come out en masse and vote for the Peoples Democratic party governorship candidate in the state.
According to a concerned forum known as the green cap movement, the future of plateau state and its youthful populace could only be secured through a vote for Barrister Caleb Mutfwang of the PDP.
While calling for a peaceful election this Saturday, the group urges INEC not to succumb to pressure by deviating from the ideal but ensure a free, fair, credible and transparent exercise.
Heading over to the national level, the National Chairman of the PDP, Mr. Iyorchia Ayu, will today lead some governors elected on the platform of the party on a protest march to the Independent National Electoral Commission headquarters, Abuja, over the outcome of the February 25 presidential election.
The development has, however, sparked apprehension in the Federal Capital Territory as residents feared the march may result in violence following the anger over the conduct and outcome of the polls.
Governors Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State, Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom, Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto, Godwin Obaseki of Edo, Bala Mohammed of Bauchi, Darius Ishaku of Taraba and Ademola Adeleke of Osun State are expected to participate in the march scheduled to take off from the PDP headquarters, Legacy House, Maitama, Abuja.
The electoral commission had last Wednesday declared the APC standard bearer, Bola Tinubu, the winner of the election after scoring a total of 8, 794, 726 votes, representing 25 per cent of the total votes cast in 30 states.
