Plateau State Governor Simon Lalong has pledged to end the killings through ethnic clashes and land disputes across the state by ensuring interpersonal engagement and fairness in the distribution of amenities to the residents.
The Commissioner for Information, Mr. Yakubu Dati, broke the news in Lagos.
The commissioner said Lalong was devoted to ending the “cycle of bloodletting in Plateau” and make the state a reference point for peace in the Middle Belt.
Dati, who addressed reporters at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA) in Ikela, Lagos, said the governor’s strategic deployment of amenities across the state had given every ethnic group a sense of belonging.
The commissioner spoke on tomorrow’s historical visit of President Muhammadu Buhari to Plateau State.
He noted that it would enable the state to unveil the accomplishments of the Lalong administration in developing and strengthening the relationship between the residents and the Federal Government.
Dati said: “As the President arrives on a working visit, he will inspect and inaugurate some roads, including the Mararaba Jama’a Expressway, Low-cost Miango-Rafiki road network and the fly-over at the secretariat junction. President Buhari will also inspect the Unguwar Rogo–Alikazaure Bridge under construction.
“The Agricultural sector, which is one of the new normal in the policy thrust of the government, will witness a significant push as President Buhari launches 400 tractors purchased for distribution. The tractors’ ownership and Public Private Partnership (PPP) scheme between the Plateau State government and the state’s All Farmers Multipurpose Cooperative Society.”
