Youths in Plateau have come out in support of Plateau State Government’s ranching policy. Numbering several hundreds, the youths walked through major streets in Jos, holding banners in support of Government and its position.
They sang songs of adulation to the government and called for urgent implementation of ranching. It is not immediately clear, what groups are behind the organisation of the protests, but several of the youth are people who feel dis-enfranchised by the current debate and how it has developed.
It would appear the protest is in reaction to previous protest held by other youth groups last week – particularly as organised by G17, BECO and women groups.
