In our opinion forum this week, we copied an open letter on facebook written by Gideon Rotgak Musa to Governor Simon Bako Lalong of Plateau State on the alleged plan by the Governor to award indigeneship to the Hausa/Fulani Community residing in Jos North LGA, a claim some quarters are taking serious.

COPIED FROM FACEBOOK
AN OPEN LETTER TO GOVERNOR BAKO LALONG OF PLATEAU STATE.
Sire, this is to call your attention on the issue of giving, Fulani/Hausa indigenship in Jos North LGA. If u really love Plateau, you will never think of such issue because it will only bring war to Plateau people. Hausa/Fulanis are never indigenes of this State; they are only settlers NOT indigenes.
Let me tell you the truth, if u give any settler indegenship, you must also give all the settlers including, Igbos and Yorubas.
I have a question to ask; can Ngas, Berom, Goemai, Tarok or any tribe in Plateau become indigenes in any Hausa/Fulani State???.
Can they give you the Governor indegenship in Sokoto, Zamfara or Kano?
Please Sire, you should be careful with what you do or who you nominate in the state
Thank u sire.
I remain loyal sire
Gideon Rotgak Musa
What is your take on this?
