With barely five days to the local government polls in Plateau State, the Youth Wing of the Christian Association of Nigeria YOWICAN, the Women Wing of the Christian Association of Nigeria WOWICAN in the state and Plateau Northern Senatorial Zone of Ethnic Youth Nationalities have called on the Governor Simon Lalong led administration to resist the temptation of being insensitive to the plight of the citizenry by refraining from any attempt of conducting the elections in Jos North and Bassa LGAs pending when there is much more stable peace and calm.

The group said also it will amount to insensitivity by government as citizens in the state, particularly those in Bassa and Jos North LGA are still mourning the dead and are yet to recovered from the “pains and agony of their losses with very little done by the government in assuring and ensuring their security and safety is guaranteed”.

They equally advised government to use the resources meant for a the elections to rehabilitate and return displaced people back to their ancestral home, rather than conducting polls.

The Chairman of YOWICAN, Deacon Markus Kanda Audu, Chairman, WOWICAN Amb. Rhoda G. Jahota and Chairman, Ethnic Youth Nationalities (Northern Zone) Comrade Song Muru, made the call at a press conference in Jos the State Capital on Monday.

The Groups said, “We are perplexed with the unfolding events in the state and the polity over several issues that we will be addressing with every sense of responsibility and seriousness.

“The history of elections in Plateau State, particularly Jos North LGA has been very volatile characterised by crisis and unrests transforming into violent conflicts and disruption of civil activities.

“Sadly, this gets to be recovered painfully after alot has been wasted and destroyed. This usually necessity the appointment of LGA Management Committee Chairmen over the years”, he explained.

The Groups called on elders, Church leaders and all well-meaning citizens to call on government to retrace its steps in the light of the aforementioned issues.”
