Politicians are Behind the Crisis in Plateau State – Governor Lalong

The governor of Plateau State, Simon Lalong, has accused politicians of fuelling crisis in his state.

He made this known during the Nigerian Economic Summit in Abuja where participants had gathered to discuss the security of the nation among other issues.

Lalong noted that the state of Plateau in the past was known for peace and tourism but things changed when some politicians began creating problems within the state.

In his remarks, the governor said governors of the 19 northern states are in full support of the creation of state police to tackle the numerous security challenges facing their domain.

“Plateau is codenamed the home of peace and tourism. Then all of a sudden, what happened? I will say also that part of it is the role of political actors,” he said.

“You see people bringing issues like ethnicity, religion-dominated issues, and so we were now beginning to see ourselves as enemies.

“If I am a Christian, I don’t want a Moslem to come near me or I belong to this tribe, I don’t want that tribe to come in.”
