Ahead of the October 9 local government elections in Plateau State, the Association of Ethnic Nationalities in Jos North LGA of Plateau State, made up of the Anaguta, Afizere, Berom, Hausa, Irigwe, Igbo and Yoruba have warned against any act capable of truncating the peace and harmony in Jos and the state as a whole.
Addressing a press conference at the NUJ Press Centre in Jos, the group led by its Chairman, Ada Agwom Atang and Secretary, Samaila Abubakar Garba, said, “We advise anyone who is thinking in any act that will truncate the peace and harmony in Jos and the state at large to think twice because we know them and if pushed to the wall we will name them one by one to the security agencies for appropriate actions. Most of those troublemakers Are not even from Jos North but they are using the few individuals to achieve their evil and devilish act.”
Applauding the state government for ensuring peace in the state, the group stated that they “never had it this good in Jos North especially state at large. We say thank you for your strive to ensure peace and fair play reigns supreme since you assume the leadership of the state in 2015.”
While urging all security agencies in the state to redouble effort to forestall any trouble, the Association assured that the communities are fully committed to peace in Jos North Local government area stating that they have resolved never to leave any stone unturned to achieve this.
“We stand United to this resolve and we shall ensure peace as our cardinal mission in Jos North Local government.”
