Insecurity in Plateau declined  drastically under Lalong

Plateau Regeneration Group  on Friday said that Insecurity in Plateau  declined drastically under Governor Simon  Lalong led administration .

The group also noted that Plateau state had before now  suffered many setbacks in the hands of its leaders and specialised cabals who knitted the gory stories thus leading to an era of incessant crisis in the state.
This nagging situation, the  group said changed in the past 3 years

 Governor Simon Lalong has done more in tackling insecurity in plateau than any ex Governor of the state .

The group in a statement signed by Pam Datiri the Public Relations officer of the group made this statement hinged its reason on the peace and security of Plateau under Governor Lalong.

  The statement reads that it has observed that the opposition parties  derives pleasure in playing politics with insecurity
We have observed that one of the major campaign point  of the opposition party is the issue of insecurity and as a group we know that the Simon Lalong led  APC administration has done more in tackling insecurity that any  government in the  state .

The APC led Government in Plateau has done well in providing dividends of democracy in Plateau especially when it comes to tackling insecurity .
Lalong led administration on resumption of office  set up a 14-man committee, seven each from the warring Berom and Fulani communities, to reconcile their differences towards lasting peace, according to Governor
The state Governor also established the Plateau peace building agency which is working tirelessly to ensure lasting peace in plateau

The statement further reads that from our investigation  Governor Simon Lalong  Administration has and would never  contemplated abandoning the course of the Plateau project as being insinuated by some people for cheap political relevance.


Governor Lalong,s  administration  has done everything possible within its reach to deliver to the people a State that is devoid of crisis, free for all to practice one’s religion of choice and to go about their normal businesses without molestations.

on assumption of office in May 2015, the Lalong led administration  made it a priority that Peace, Security and Good Governance must take the centre stage for any meaningful and sustainable development. This led to the establishment of the Peace and Reconciliation Committee that deliberated and made far reaching recommendations for government to implement. Amongst these recommendations are what we have today as the Plateau Peace Building Agency, the first of its kind in the country and doing a good job of advocacy, pro-activeness in conflict management, etc.

Another far-reaching recommendation, which government embraced was tackling the issue of IDPs and as it is about 204 households from Kakuruk, Kuzen and Kura Falls in Barkin Ladi returned home .

 To ensure lasting peace in Plateau , the Lalong led administration attracted the establishment of the 205 Combat and Rescue units in Kerang and Mobile Police Squadron in Shendam. The Lalong led government  also procured and distributed over 50 security vehicles, equipped with modern communication gadgets.

Also the Lalong adminstration also approved the recruitment and training of neighbourhood personnel attached to Operation Rainbow for community policing and intelligence gathering.

There is also recent approval to establish Mobile Police Barracks in Gashish District of Barkin Ladi. In fact, as a demonstration of support towards government’s efforts, the community through the Nigeria Electricity Supply Company (NESCO) has given a temporary site for mobile police barrack, pending development of its permanent site.

As a group we commend Lalong led administration for his efforts in tackling insecurity and call on the people of the state to support him and ensure he wins the forthcoming 2019 Governorship election in the state.
