It is saddening watching plateau state sliding back to the unfortunate dark days of wanton destruction of lives and property. The past one month has been a nightmare for all lovers of peace on the Plateau.
We have lost our shared humanity and our sense of responsibility taken over by emotions that are doing no one good.
Plateau State Government have invested heavily on peace building in the State. It is saddening to note despite all this, agents of doom and crisis merchants are pulling us back. Let us not be discouraged in our efforts to change the negative narratives. How we live with one another in a peaceful manner is choice that we must make. It is important to note that peace building is a process and not an event. It must be nurtured, sustained and reinvigorated periodically depending on exigencies or ominous signs. Equally important is taking the EWER(early warning and early response) mechanism more seriously. Above all this, the citizenry requires a holistic approach to peace building. Once there is no sincerely of purpose, the whole garment will be soiled negatively. It is our collective efforts that will determine the outcome of our peaceful coexistence. Peace and security issues are everybody’s business. Let’s all play our parts for a sustainable peace on the Plateau and the country in general.
Fhipd Africa is calling on all stakeholders to wake up to our responsibilities and do what is right at all times.
May God Almighty heal the land and restore our lost humanity.
