 DIRECTORATE OF PRESS & PUBLIC AFFAIRS

OFFICE OF THE EXECUTIVE GOVERNOR, PLATEAU STATE

PRESS RELEASE

 

Government has followed with keen interest the disturbing state of public commentary from individuals, ethnic and socio-cultural groups on the on-going review committee work on the creation of villages, districts, and chiefdoms. To say the least, these comments rather than further consolidate on the hard earned peace in the State are capable of inciting and triggering the kind of conflicts that have troubled the peace of Plateau for more than a decade.

 

For the avoidance of doubt, the Review Committee mandate is principally to provide the citizenry, a platform to present for Government’s consideration perceived injustices in past exercises of like nature that have distorted history and tempered with the institutional structure of existences of the various communities and ethnic groupings.

Government wishes to state categorically that it will be pre-emptive for any individual, or group of individuals to draw conclusion with inflammatory comments on an exercise that is on-going, and which is open to every group to present their case for consideration.

Furthermore, Government wishes to state that it would not sit and fold her arms when her efforts in building an enduring peace on the Plateau is been jeopardised by any person or group of persons. It therefore warns all those who will desire for their self serving interest, to fracture the peace being enjoyed and the confidence government has earned from the citizenry, with unguided and inciting comments, to desist forthwith or be made to face the wrath of the Law.

  1. This is how a govt out to have been. Kudos to d present Plateau State govt for boldly re-stating her stance. MAY GOD BRING UNENDING PEACE BACK TO THE ONE TIME HOME OF PEACE AND TOURISM. BY GOD’S GRACE, THE ENEMIES OF THE PEOPLE WILL BE PUT TO SHAME, AS PEACE HAS FINALLY RETURNED FOREVER AND EVER, AMIN.

  2. The Lalong Government is a serious government. Its seems to be tackling the Plateau problem head-on. Everyone on the Plateau should note that it was God’s design to put them together irrespective of religious or ethnic affiliations. They must therefore accept the will of God and anything otherwise would lead to HIS wrath upon them.
