It was a shutdown in Jos, Plateau State as the Presidential flag-bearer of the All Progressives Congress, APC, President Muhammadu Buhari arrived on Saturday, 19th January,2019 in continuation of his campaign tour.

President Buhari and other National Party Executives where received by an overwhelming crowed at the Jos Township Stadium, venue of the rally.

The Crowd outnumbered security expectations, leading to destruction of the sound equipment. Despite all efforts to calm the crowd down, President Buhari could not address the crowd and had to leave the venue of the rally without delivering a speech.  

The President has campaigned in some states of the federation but the overwhelming reception on his visit to Plateau was beyond what has been seen in previous states.
Buhari was led away through the rear exit.
Governor Simon Lalong and the the director general of the Buhari/Osinabajo Campaign Organisation, Rotimi Amechi, were not also able to deliver any speech at the venue due to the crowd trouble.

The president was only able to wave to party supporters as he hurried out.
