Buhari Commends Lalong For Restoring Peace In Jos

President Muhammadu Buhari has commended the Governor of Plateau State, Simon Bako Lalong, for his efforts in restoring peace and security in the state.

The president, who said the governor's efforts have made the state safer for residents, urged the people of the state to support the government's commitment in making the state safer.

Buhari made this known during the virtual commissioning of projects executed by the governor in various parts of the state. 

“Governor Lalong has worked hard to restore peace and security to Plateau State.

"His efforts have yielded positive results as Plateau is no longer perceived as a place to feel unsafe. Well done, Governor Lalong!

“I advise the citizens of this state to continue to work with the Government and security agencies in uniting against crises merchants who seek to exploit the diversity of the State for their selfish reasons," the president said.

The statement is contained in a statement on Friday by Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser to the president on Media and Publicity. 

According to Adesina, the president also condemned in strong terms the “cases of isolated attacks on innocent citizens in the rural areas such as the one that occurred this Tuesday where villagers including women and children were killed in Kubat, Mangu LGA.”

The president further assured that the perpetrators would be brought to book.

He also commended Lalong for completing projects he inherited from the previous administrations while calling on the incoming government to follow emulate the governor.  

“I challenge the incoming administration in Plateau State to build on what he has done and sustain the culture of continuity, especially, in the face of dwindling resources and large infrastructure deficit," Buhari said.

"The projects inaugurated by President Buhari are; Flyover, Interchange and Dualisation of 1.7Km British – American Junction Road to Lamingo Roundabout; Radio – Diagnostic and imaging Centre at Plateau Specialist hospital; Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) Command and Staff College at Lamingo, as well as the Inauguration of its Course 001/2023 which he believes will complement efforts at sustaining peace and security," Adesina stated.
