President Muhammadu Buhari last month broke down in tears after witnessing the swam of crowds that came out to welcome him during the APC Presidential rally in Jos the Plateau State capital.

According to the State Governor, Mr. Simon Lalong, the President who could not speak at the rally due to the uncontrollable nature of the crowd confessed to being overjoyed by the experience.

Lalong told party faithful at the Plateau Southern APC rally yesterday in Shendam that Mr. Buhari plans on returning the favour done him through the show of love during the rally, after the polls.

Buhari had after the rally released a statement through his Special Adviser on Media, Femi Adesina admitting to have seen nothing like the Plateau crowd before.

Meanwhile, Gov. Simon Lalong is confident that returning Buhari and the entire APC in the 2019 elections would mean increased job opportunities, human welfare and capital development.


Lalong at the APC Southern zone rally in Shendam said most of the projects and policies that were seemingly impossible in Nigeria have been executed by the APC government.

Speaking earlier, the Plateau APC Chairman, Mr. Latep Dabang said top among the APC government's achievements in Plateau State were dozens of jobs created for youths, aside monthly stipends given a selection of households "for doing nothing".

The employed youths he said include those either layer off or placed on temporary status by previous governments, or never considered at all.

"You will lose a lot if you don't elect APC again...you will go to hell," the Party Chairman told youths.
