Plateau State governor-elect Caleb Mutfwang says the unfortunate killings in his state could be resolved by further creating a bond and unity amongst residents.
He described the recent security breach that claimed dozens of lives in some parts of the state as “unfortunate.”
Muftwang vowed to strengthen the bond when he assumes office and bring an end to the frequent killings in Plateau.
The Governor-elect spoke on Thursday while receiving the Taroh people led by the President of Ngwang Ishi O’Tarok, Nanpon Danjuma Sheni, on a courtesy visit at Government House Lodge in Jos, the state capital.
“I want to use this opportunity to call on everyone who is resident within the borders of Plateau and our neighbours to know that Plateau people are peace-loving people and we are highly accommodative.
“We need to come together to be able to secure and build our land by making sure that the blessings that God has put in the land are harnessed for the advantage and benefit of all,” he said.
Mutwang thanked the Tarok nation for the immense support accorded him during the election and urged them to remain a formidable force in the rebuilding of a new Plateau.
He also assured them of the commitment of his administration to build a sound and enduring infrastructural base that will benefit every community in the state.
Earlier in his remarks, Sheni said their visit was primarily to congratulate the Governor-elect and his deputy, Josephine Piyo, on their recent victory in the general elections.
He pledged the loyalty and support of the Taroh people to the incoming administration.
“Your excellency, you are taking over government in our state at a most challenging period, with heightened insecurity almost everywhere.
"We all know that without adequate security, there cannot be any meaningful development.
“After all, the protection and preservation of lives and properties remain the cardinal and primary objective of any government.
