House of Reps to adopt strong stance on Plateau killings next week– Speaker



Speaker, House of Reps, Rt.Hon Tajudeen Abbas, has stated that the House will adopt a strong position on the killings in Plateau State with a view to finding lasting solutions.

According to him, plans are on to meet with President Bola Tinubu and iron out issues on security to that effect.

He was however not forthcoming on what is on the table for discussion considering that such talks had happened with Nigeria’s presidents in the past without any meaningful outcome coming from them.

Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the Speaker, Musa Krishi, made this development known on Friday.

Earlier in the week, attacks were reported in Mangu where scores of people were killed.

The latest incident led the Plateau State Government to imposing a 24-hour curfew in the affected area.

“Speaker Abbas said he would meet with President Tinubu on the matter, while the House would take a strong position upon its resumption from the Christmas and New Year break on Tuesday, next week,” Krishi said.

He also added that Rt Hon Abbas as saying that on resumption of the lawmakers on January 30, 2024, the House would kick-start plans to organize a security submit to find lasting solutions to the security challenges in the North and other parts of the country.

“I am deeply saddened by the continuous killings in Plateau State. It is unfortunate and disheartening that this is happening at this time when efforts are on to tackle insecurity around the country.

“I call on the people of Plateau State to live in peace with one another as they were known for years back.

“We cannot continue like this as a people.

“Our creator, in His wisdom, brought us together for a reason, and we must continue to appreciate our differences and form a common front to tackle our collective challenges instead of killing ourselves. This path will only take us backward,” the speaker was quoted to have said according to Kirshi.

SaharaReporters earlier reported that Mr. Ibu had undergone multiple surgeries and was seeking further treatment abroad, with his family expressing gratitude for the donations received from his fans.
