•A Head Of Plateau LG Polls

Ahead of October 9, 2021, local government council election in Plateau State, critical stakeholders from diverse tribes in Jos North local government area of the State said they have uncovered plans by trouble makers to truncate the peace not just in Jos North LGA local government area but the State at large.

They advised those bent on fomenting trouble to desist as they will be named and arrested in the event that the process is truncated and the fragile peace breached.

The stakeholders under the auspice of the Association of ethnic nationalities and communities; Anaguta, Afizere, Berom, Hausa, Irigwe, Igbo, Yoruba, Central and Southern zones in Jos North  LGA, called on law-abiding citizens to be calm and stay focused on the election day approaches.

Addressing newsmen in Jos on Monday, the leader, Agwom Atang,  urged all who will vote on that day to conduct themselves in a peaceful manner as the local government area is in dire need of peace.

His words. “We find it necessary to address the press as we approach a landmark period for the consolidation of democracy and peaceful coexistence in Jos North… As the election is around the corner, it is our sincere call to all citizens in Jos North and especially the youths to come all out and conduct themselves peacefully as we cast our votes… Jos North needs peace more than any other place for our continued development.

“We seize this opportunity to call on all citizens to remain calm and well-focused as we await the historic 9th October 2021 the day to usher in a new era in the political history and development of Jos North local government area.

” We advise anyone who is thinking of doing 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 push us to the wall, we will name them one by one to the security agencies for appropriate action”.

According to them, Most of those trouble makers are not even from Jos but they are using the few individuals to achieve their evil and devilish act.

” Our communities are fully committed to peace in Jos North and we resolve never to leave any stone unturned to achieve this…”

They called on security agencies in the State to “redouble efforts at ensuring any trouble is nipped in the bud, as not all are happy with the peace and  harmony enjoyed in Jos North.”
