A peace advocacy group under the aegis of Conference of Plateau State Peace Builders’ Network has applauded the Plateau State governor, Barr. Simon Lalong and the Commander of Operation Safe Haven and other security agencies for restoring peace in the Plateau.
The group in a statement signed by the National Coordinator, Dr. Dung Bot, and National Secretary, Barr. Mrs. Lucy Wuyep particularly hailed Operation Safe Haven for exhibiting professionalism.
It added that the disposition of men of the military to last week’s unprovoked attack on its men deployed to calm frayed nerves during last week’s protest embarked upon by local government workers in Plateau State was indeed commendable.
While thanking the troop of Operation Safe Haven
(OPSH), for not responding to the unprovoked shooting of personnel during workers’ protest, the peace advocacy group urged state government, security agencies, and stakeholders to sustain the peace efforts.
The group also urged the government, the special military outfit as well as other security agencies involved in the state’s peace efforts to sustain the tempo with a view to enthroning permanent peace in the state.
Regretting that the men who were constitutionally deployed to quell the tension arising from the state council workers protesting of nonimplementation of minimum wage at the local level were rather shot at, the group expressed happiness that soldiers did not respond with force.
“Ordinarily, there would have been serious casualty figure because of the unruly behavior of some of the local government workers who were protesting over non-implementation of the minimum wage, leading to the shooting of a soldier in the rank of Lance Corporal,” the statement said.
The group further explained that: “This statement is aimed at commending the efforts of the Plateau State Government, particularly Operation Safe Haven (OPSH) on the peace we are enjoying on the Plateaus.”
“We wish to generally commend the Plateau State Government for putting in place the right framework that is responsible for the current peace we are enjoying on the Plateau.
“We applaud Operation Safe Haven for living up to the citizens’ expectations in combating terrorism, banditry, cattle rustling, farmers/ herdsmen conflict, kidnapping, cultism and other social vices up to this moment”.
According to the Conference of Plateau State Peace Builders’ Network, “The uncommon peace and tranquility we are experiencing today in Bassa, Barkin Ladi Riyom and other local government areas of Plateau State which used to be the hub of the crisis has made the state safe today to all genuine businesses and activities.”
“We must thank the governor of Plateau State, the Commander of Operation Safe Haven, and his men and other security agencies for the current peace we are enjoying today. We urge them to sustain it this year.
“We wish to especially thank all the officers and men of Operation Safe Haven for the aggressive patrol during the yuletide season which made it crime-free. This is the first of its kind after a long while”.
