A pro-democracy group, Peace and Good Governance Advocates, has tasked the judiciary not to allow the evolving peace in Plateau to be consumed through the actions of a few errant officers and their political collaborators.
The group in a statement issued by its national coordinator, Mani Immam, cautioned that conflicting judgments on election petition tribunals could lead to an uprising.
PEGGA tasked the National Judicial Council to put special focus on the Plateau and save the state and the country from tension on account of contradictory and conflicting judgments.
“We want to draw the attention of all concerned as to the growing tension on the plateau on account of what is now being drummed to the citizenry that the so-called owners of Plateau State are determined to take control of the state.
“While we are non-partisan, we are, however, afraid that this judicial gambit is increasingly raising tension on the Plateau and call on the judicial authorities to be mindful of the ongoing developments lest they be also held culpable in the implosion that may arise.”
