All Progressives Congress, APC, in Plateau State has suspended its mega rally for the southern Senatorial Zone by-election earlier scheduled for Wednesday (today)

Chairman of the party, Letep Dabang, in a statement made available to newsmen, said the suspension of the mega rally became necessary as a result of the current mood of the entire nation on the recent massacre of innocent Nigerians on their rice farm in Maiduguri, Borno State by the Boko Haram sect.

According to the statement, the APC as a responsible party joins the nation in mourning the departed souls and others that have been killed as a result of senseless acts of a few who do not mean well for the country.

While sympathizing with the Governor, Prof Babagana Zullum, and the people of Borneo State, the APC also condole the Executive Governor of Plateau State and Chairman Northern Governors forum, Hon Simon Bako Lalong urging him to continue with his synergy with other Governors towards ensuring peace across the region.

Letep Dabang said while it is only the mega rally that has been suspended, other activities such as the door-to-door campaigns will continue to ensure victory for the party on Saturday.
