Top Plateau citizens agree to work with Jang

Stakeholders in Plateau State have resolved to work with the state government to find solution to the recurring crisis in the state. This was part of the resolution of a meeting of top citizens of the state convened by Governor Jonah Jang following the sectarian crisis that rocked the state.

Sources close to the meeting told Saturday Vanguard that all present resolved to bury their political and other differences and join hands with the governor to put an end to the violence which all agreed was doing the state no good.

The meeting commended Governor Jang for the steps taken to tackle the crisis with various speakers suggesting ways of resolving the problem once and for all.

According to sources, one of the suggestions was for the constitution of a special committee made up of eminent persons respected by all sides to the crisis to identify the root cause of the crisis and reconcile the various groups.

The stakeholders were said to have condemned the crisis in totality and identified the seeming external influence in it, stressing the need for every stakeholder to resolve that “enough is enough”.

An issue said to have been common to many of the speakers at the meeting was the importance of revisiting reports on past crises which were not implemented and which they blamed for the recurring crises.

Similar calls for the implementation of the reports have come from various quarters since the recent violence erupted.
