Jos - Senate President, Sen. David Mark, on Monday described the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as “dynamic and youth-oriented.”

Mark, while addressing the PDP presidential rally in Jos, said that the party had encouraged youth leadership as exemplified in the nomination of young people as its candidates for the February polls.

The senate president particularly pointed at its governorship candidates in Plateau, Niger and Benue, and explained that new leaders were emerging in the middle belt.

According to him, the zone has always voted the PDP and would continue to do so.

Minister of Water Resource Sarah Ochekpe, in her speech, promised that women shall deliver bloc votes.

“We are moving from community to community, house to house, ward to ward, and preaching the message of transformation.”

“We are also mobilisiing youths and all other groups to support Sen Gyang Pwajok, the Plateau governorship candidate, and Jonathan.”

“We shall not engage in violence because violence begets violence and he who sows violence shall reap violence,” she said.
