Jos: Panel submits interim report to Jonathan

By Daniel Idonor

ABUJA—THE Presidential Advisory Panel on the recent crises in Jos, the Plateau State, led by a former governor in the state, Chief Solomon Lar, yesterday submitted an interim report to Acting President, Goodluck Jonathan

Fielding questions from newsmen after the presentation which held behind closed doors, Lar said “we have come to see him (Jonathan) and report to him the progress so far made about the crisis in Jos. As you know some time in Jos, to be precise January this year, a very disturbing incident occurred”.

Fighting broke out, as a result the Acting President appointed a presidential advisory committee to look into the matter and find practical solution to the problem and later report to government and this is what we have come to do to report so far the progress made.

On progress so far made, he said, “the progress so far made is submitted to him and we would not give it in bits but the president would let the nation know that latter, after we would have concluded and completed everything”.

Asked if there was a need for an interim report when the committee’s lifespan is just two weeks, he said “well you all know that it is the interim because we haven’t finish. And you know during the investigation, another incident broke out that also was disturbing and embarrassing. So we had to see to it”.
