The Elders Advisory Forum of the All Progressive Congress, APC has advocated for the inclusion of Plateau state in the list of North East Reconstruction Funds.
The Plateau State Chairman of the forum, Chief, Captain M. Din (rtd) who made this call in reaction to the recent invasion on some communities in the state leaving scores dead, maintained that the reconstruction funds would help the people and communities ravaged
by the incessant crises .
Din commended Gov. Lalong’s commitment towards the restoration of peace to the State within the past three years and cautions citizens against utterances capable of aggravating the situation in the state.
He said the forum is deeply disturbed by the recent attacks on innocent civilians in Barkin Ladi, Riyom, Mangu, Bokkos and other parts of Plateau state by the militia herdsmen.
“We wish to commend the plateau state government for the immediate steps taken to bring the situation under control. We also commend the security agencies for the decisive measures take to stem the tide of carnage witnessed during the attacks”.
The forum also extended its gratitude to community and religious leaders, the vice president, Yemi Osinbajo for the roles played in ensuring that peace returns to the state.
” We call on relevant agencies to review the security architecture in the state such that those who justified the recent attacks on innocent citizens are picked up and made to face the full wrath of the law”.
