Reg. Simon Lalong of Plateau reiterated his government’s commitment on Thursday to end insecurity and promote peace in the state.
Lalong said this when he presented the keys to vehicles to security agencies, the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) and Yes. ‘amatu Nasrul Islam (JNI), among others by Mr. Yusuf Gagdi, member who represents the federal constituency of Pankshin, Kanke and Kanam Thursday in Pankshin.
He said the safety of life and property remains a top priority of his government.
“We are working to improve the capacities of the police and other security agencies to protect our people.
“We don’t want to see unknown armed men again in Plateau. We can only see their bodies or they should be in jail, “said the governor.
He said his government did a lot to bring people the dividends of democracy.
He said that he initiated and completed a number of projects that had a direct impact on the lives of the people in the state.
“Let me take this opportunity to share this with the political class in Plateau and Nigeria Remember that we have a great responsibility to make democracy worthwhile for the common people by being selfless and focusing on improving their lives.
“When we don’t put people first , we run the risk of alienating them and making politics uninteresting. As a government, my government has continued to fulfill its mandate over the past six years by implementing the vision of our party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.
“We have done a lot with regard to the completion of old projects and abandoned projects as well as the execution of new projects in different sectors. Many of them will be operational today and in the coming days, others will continue.
“I have always emphasized that I only need peace to be able to carry out development projects for the people. Without peace we cannot make progress, which explains why we focused on building and maintaining peace in Plateau.
