President Buhari demands sustainable peace in Plateau State

President Muhammadu Buhari has urged communities and the Plateau State Interreligious Council to sustain a commitment to the peace agreement between Irigwe and Fulani tribes and prevent it from falling apart.

The President, who was reacting to the fresh killings in Bassa Local Government Area, expressed sadness about the incident, noting that it is not in tandem with the principles of the peace agreements reached in the area.

The President commended Governor Simon Lalong for the state government’s handling of the incident so far.
