Presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) HE Alhaji Atiku Abubakar (GCON) Wazirin Adamawa was in Jos, the Plateau State capital on Sunday Evening to visit the victims of the auto crash which claimed lives and left scores injured. Alhaji Atiku Abubakar was in company of the Party’s National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, former Vice President, Namadi Sambo, former Senate President, Bukola Saraki, Senator Dino Melaye and other Party stalwarts when he visited the accident victims at the University of Jos Teaching Hospital, JUTH.

Before proceeding to the hospital, he earlier paid a visit to a former Governor of the State, Senator Jonah Jang at his house where he extended his condolences to the PDP family and Plateau State as a whole.

He donated the initial sum of N30m to be used for the treatment of the patients who are in different hospitals.

Atiku said, “The National Chairman has delivered the message on behalf of all of us, I don’t have to repeat what he said, I only want to also commiserate with the entire PDP family in Plateau State for the loss of lives of the young men and possibly women who are the future. It is a very painful one that young lives could be cut short in their prime. It is a sad moment…”

“I want to assure you that we will stand by you and make sure that those who are in the hospitals get the best possible medical attention and to ensure the we identify with the families of the deceased. I am here to announce the initial support of N30m…”

Ayu had earlier stated, “… We will make sure that they don’t die in vain but continue to work hard and rebuild this country. It is a very painful loss, we console with all our members, all the people of Plateau especially the families and we pray that God console you and give you the strength to continue in the journey you begun. The best we can do is to win the election and see how we can look after the families because some of them left dependents behind…”

Responding, Senator Jang appreciated the gesture and said, “We were preparing to go and see the victims when we were told that the Presidential candidate and the National Chairman have diverted their route to come to commiserate with us. This shows love…”.

“It is a very sad moment, this sacrifice won’t be in vain by the grace of God. Plateau will deliver to PDP from top to bottom. Plateau is PDP and PDP is Plateau…”

The entourage later moved to JUTH where they interacted with the families of the victims who are on admission and offer condolences to the injured.
