The All Progressives Congress (APC) campaign train led by President Muhammadu Buhari in Yola, the Adamawa state capital, got a rude shock on Monday when youths soundly rejected the party and its presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, by openly burning brooms, the symbol of the APC.

President Buhari had on Monday visited the state to kick-off the APC campaign train in the home state of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

However, shortly thereafter, youths trooped to the street with buckets of water, washing off what they considered as stains of the APC leaders and also set brooms (APC symbols) on fire.

“Tinubu was scheduled to arrive at the Yola International Airport by 10 am on Monday to flag off his presidential campaign in the state.”

Therefore, shortly after President Buhari’s departure, youths took to the streets, especially at the strategic “Jippu Jam” roundabout, chanting “Nigeria, sai daddy (Atiku)” washing off the “stains” of APC and setting brooms to fire.
