Pro-Jonathan groups in Plateau threaten to withdraw support

With the forthcoming general elections just two days away, supporters of the Goodluck/ Sambo campaign team in Plateau State got a major crack as over 250 support groups have threatened to withdraw their support.
The Goodluck Support Groups (GSG) alleged on Thursday that they were snubbed by the Minister of Water Resources, Sarah Ochekpe, who is coordinating the PDP presidential campaign in the state.

The group threatened that if their plight was not address, they will withdraw their support for the PDP presidential candidate, and will express their anger through the ballot box this Saturday.
Effort to reach the said Minister failed at press time.

One of the group leader who pleaded not to be named for fear of being victimized, said his group was disappointed with the action of the minister at the crucial state of the campaigns.
Meanwhile, the Nigeria Immigration Service in Plateau State said it has arrested non-Nigerians with Permanent Voter Cards.

The Comptroller of Nigeria Immigration in the state, Raymond Jaja, named the suspects as Nnekema Abu from Bukina-Faso who was picked by immigration officials in Langtang South and Rubaila Ibrahim a Cameroonian, who claimed to be married to a Nigerian but displaced during the attacks in Borno.
He disclosed this Wednesday in Jos.

He said two foreigners were arrested in Plateau state for being in possession of Permanent Votes Cards.
The Comptroller stressed “The service has received information that foreigners were conniving with unscrupulous persons in producing security documents that would qualify them in participating in the elections.

“They should know that foreigners are not eligible to participate in any electoral process in Nigeria. The attention of the service have gathered that some foreigners in Plateau possess Permanent Voters Cards and other critical national security documents.
