Governor Jonah Jang of Plateau State yesterday declared that there will be no more crises for as long as he remains the state governor.
“We have had enough of the crises, I promise that between now and the end of my tenure in 2015, there will not be any crises again,” he said.
Jang spoke at one of the displaced persons camp in the Rikkos area of Jos, the state capital, during a visit to victims of the flooding in that area that claimed many lives and valuable properties last Sunday.
He told the people to help the peace process, saying, “People must continue to live in peace, God will help us to be in peace only if we want to be, we should have patience and live in
peace with each other, it is God that created all of us and we should live together.”
He told the predominantly Muslim community to use the fasting period to pray for the restoration of peace, explaining that he was saddened by the flood and promising that his government would do everything possible to ensure that all water ways are fixed to avoid further occurrence.
Responding on behalf of the chief Imam of Jos, a Jos community leader, Alhaji Garba Abdulkadir, said the people were happy with the governor for personally visiting them after sending some of his officials when the news of the flooding broke.
“Your coming signifies that your doors are now open for more dialogue with the Muslim community, Abdulkadir said.
