Vice President Kashim Shettima has given assurance to the people of Mangu Local Government Area of Kaduna State, that President Bola Tinubu’s administration would restore peace in the area, within the shortest possible time.
Shettima made this known while speaking on Friday, when he hosted a traditional ruler from Mangu, the Mishkahan Mwaghavul, John Hirse, who led a team on a courtesy call to his office at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The Vice President noted that every part of Nigeria would be made to feel the impact of the government under Tinubu’s administration.
According to him, the crisis in Plateau had nothing to do with religion, saying that mutual understanding is what is needed to stay together.
He said: ” It’s just for us to understand ourselves and coexist peacefully with one another.
”Plateau is a blessed land with both Muslims and Christians. What binds us together supersedes what divides us.
”This administration will deploy all resources towards addressing all the political contradictions in the bid to restore peace and harmony in the state.
“We are going to address, by the grace of God, all the internal contradictions, the political connotations and even the ethnic undertones which are part of the conflict and ensure we find a lasting solution.”
