SAYS THERE ARE CONSTITUTIONAL WAYS OF CHANNELING GRIEVANCES
By Kenzy Ngupar
The All Progressives Congress in Plateau State has expressed concern on recent happenings which has heightened tensions leading to loss of some lives and destruction of property.
In a statement by Chairman of the party,Letep Dabang and signed by the state Publicity Secretary,Chindo Dafat,the APC views reasons for the unrest as needless as there are laid down procedures for channeling grievances as contained in the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.


The APC in Plateau State described the incident as unfortunate noting that the administration at the federal level had already initiated processes where seemingly aggrieved citizens or sections of the country could channel all issues bothering them as a people including restructuring for true federalism.
The statement adds that Plateau state cannot afford to return to those dark days where citizens turned against each other for the benefit of a selfish few.It further warned merchants of violent conflicts to take note that Nigeria under the APC Government will not take such issues lightly because it has promised to protect lives and property of citizens.
The statement further appealed to elder statesmen, community, religious, and political leaders to continue preaching peaceful coexistence in plateau state and Nigeria as it is the only basis for sustainable development.
The Party has also commended the immediate steps taken by Governor Simon Lalong which included the declaration of a dusk till dawn curfew,summoning of a large security and community leaders meeting towards ensuring understanding and lasting peace in the state.
APC also commended security agencies,civil society organizations, religious institutions and other stakeholders for ensuring the situation was nipped in the bud and urged citizens to go about their lives with mutual respect for one another, putting the corporate existence of Nigeria as a priority..
