The State of Plateau as a platform seeks to promote democracy on the local level by bringing the fore issues concerning the State, and facilitating citizens debate on public issues, through participation in government decision making.

PRESS STATEMENT




18.10.2021


NO MAULUD PROCESSION IS ALLOWED ON THE PLATEAU

  

Operation SAFE HAVEN have noted the arrangement by some Muslim Youths on the Plateau to hold a procession to commemorate the birth of Prophet Muhammad SAW (PbuH) on Tuesday 19 October 2021. 


Information received also indicated that the procession is organized without the knowledge of Jamaatul Nasir Islam, security agencies and the Plateau state government.


While felicitating with the entire Muslim ummah on the birth of Prophet Muhammad SAW (PbuH) and recognising the right to such processions under different circumstances, it is however  expedient to state that the fragile peace on the Plateau does not present a conducive  atmosphere for any form of procession at the moment.


Further to this, Operation SAFE HAVEN therefore wishes to draw the attention of the youths and  members of the public on the ban of any kind of protest and procession by the state government which is still in force. 


Consequently, Operation SAFE HAVEN encourages the Muslim faithfuls to observe the Maulud without any form of procession. 


Meanwhile, the Commander, Operation SAFE HAVEN Major General Ibrahim Ali has directed troops to ensure that no group organizes any form of procession during the period of the Maulud. 


Operation SAFE HAVEN is working assiduously with the Plateau state government, critical stake holders such as traditional rulers, religious leaders and law abiding citizens to ensure peaceful co-existence. To live together, we must live in peace with one another.


HAPPY EID EL MAULUD TO ALL MUSLIM FAITHFULS
