One group, Make Jos Great Again Forum (MJGAF) condemned all acts of violence and called for peaceful coexistence in Plateau State.

In a statement by the Chairman of the Board, Chief Samu’ila Makama and other Board members on Tuesday, the MJGA explained that as a group of like minds, we, the members of the Make Jos Great Again forum (MJGA), we are called JOSIANS. , with an understanding of the greatness of living together in peace and harmony for a considerable number of years, before and in the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s to the present day.

The group lamented that “unfortunately Jos, which was once a great city of peace characterized by peaceful coexistence, is to a large extent no longer the case. The city of Jos, envied by all, has known since 2001 several ethnic and religious crises and conflicts that have displaced some of its inhabitants, eroded the feeling of brotherhood, created mistrust and animosity among the population and brought back the former great city ​​of glory at its knees.

“Over the past six (6) years, Plateau State has enjoyed relative peace, thanks to the efforts of the current state government until recently, when there was a resurgence of violence resulting in loss of life and property, he noted.

According to the group, “On August 14, 2021, an unfortunate incident occurred along Rukuba Road in Jos, the state capital, where several lives were lost. The attack on suburban buses passing through the gate’s capital was reportedly in retaliation for the earlier chaos that had occurred in Miango and other parts of the Bassa local government area.
