Nasarawa Govt Assures Border Communities Of Benue State Of Adequate Security
Nasarawa State Government has assured residents of the communities at the Nasarawa State border with Benue State of adequate security following the implementation of the anti-grazing law by Benue state government.
Governor, Umaru Tanko Al-Makura urged people within that axis to go about with their normal daily businesses.
The position was contained in a statement signed by the Chief Press Secretary (CPS) to the governor, Musa Elayo and made available to Journalists.
The statement further added that Al-Makura is fully aware of the tension at the border communities over the anti-grazing law, stressing that Government is determined to ensure adequate security measures to forestall any eventualities.
The Governor, however, appealed to the people at the affected areas not to do anything that would jeopardize the existing peaceful co-existence between the two States.
The statement further said Governor Al-Makura reiterated his commitment to ensuring the development of the state hence the need to stay in peace in spite of tribal and religious inclination.
The Governor called on the stakeholders of the affected areas to continue to dialogue and sensitize their people on the sign of peace.
Calling on the youths and the Fulani herdsmen on the need to embrace peace and avoid rumour mongering that is detrimental to the aggregate cacophony in the state.
The Governor warned any person or groups who try to incite the people to cause disunity at the border communities would not be tolerated.
Adding that violators of such directive would face the consequences of their temerity.
