The PDP Governors’ Forum has extended its sympathies to the Plateau State government and people following the Christmas Eve attacks and recent security breaches in the Bokkos, Mangu, and Barkin-Ladi Local Government Areas. As a show of unity, the governors donated N100 million to assist the survivors.
Senator Bala Mohammed, the Forum’s Chairman and Governor of Bauchi State, led the delegation to the New Government House in Little Rayfield, Jos.
He expressed the Forum’s sorrow to Governor Caleb Manasseh Mutfwang and the survivors, while urging for the formation of State Police to handle the current security concerns.
“We, representing the PDP Governors Forum, extend our heartfelt condolences to you and the people of Plateau. The crisis is unfortunate, and we urge you to remain focused amidst these challenges,” Sen. Mohammed remarked.
Recognising Plateau’s position as a home for everyone, he emphasised the importance of state-specific security measures. Sen. Mohammed urged the federal government and security agencies to step up their efforts to address the nation’s security challenges.
Governor Mutfwang responded by thanking the supporters and committing to building unity across faith and ethnicity on the Plateau. He emphasised the significance of establishing community trust in order to effectively combat criminal activity.
“As governor, I believe in the unity of our people. If we rebuild trust and treat criminality uniformly, we can overcome these challenges,” Governor Mutfwang stated. He affirmed the PDP’s significance in Plateau and across Nigeria, pledging to continue delivering democratic dividends to the people.
Governors that attended the visit include Sen. Dr. Ademola Adeleke of Osun State, Rt. Hon. Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri of Adamawa State, Seyi Makinde of Oyo State, Godwin Obasake of Edo State, Mr. Peter Mba of Enugu State, and Hon. C.T.O Maduabum, Director General of the PDP Forum.
