Plateau mothers warn youths against participating in sponsored protests



Concerned mothers in Plateau State have warned the public of a planned protest against the state government and the internal military unit, Operation Safe Haven, keeping peace in the state.

The mothers have also warned their children against partaking in the alleged planned protest supposedly slated for Monday.

In a statement on Sunday, the Plateau mothers known as the Coalition of Plateau Mothers’ Forum, alleged that the planned protest was being bankrolled by “desperate politicians” seeking relevance ahead of the 2023 elections.”

They called on the youths not to fall prey to the antics of the “failed politicians”, who according to them,” were trying to revive their political machinery using the recent sad events in the state.

The statement which was signed by the forum’s National Coordinator, Barr. (Mrs) Rebeca Pam and the Programme Officer, Dr (Mrs) Grace Dakok, said the governor and the security outfit had done so much to enthrone peace in the state.

They emphasized that the peace tranquillity currently being enjoyed by residents of the state is as a result of the relentless efforts of the state govt, the OPSH and other security agencies.

The statement read, “It has come to our attention that some desperate politicians who have lost relevance not only in their constituencies but also the state are mobilizing some misguided youths to protest against the state government and security agencies especially Operation Safe Haven who have done so much to the glory of God and the shame of the devil, over an instigated isolated killings of two young men in Riyom Local Government Area of the state just to blackmail the government and security agencies.

“We call on the youths on the Plateau not to allow themselves to be used by these desperate and failed politicians.

“That era where misguided youths were being used by self-seeking politicians has passed. The state has moved on from hypocrisy and sycophancy, hence we cannot allow ourselves to be used as destructive agents in the hands of local failed politicians who have obviously lost touch with their constituents and are trying to lunch themselves back because of 2023 using the plight of the people anymore.

“Governor Simon Lalong and the security agencies have done so much in the area of peace and security in the state. This is evident in the uncommon peace we are experiencing on the Plateau today.

“Once upon a time, at least, 10 to 20 people were being killed in our communities on a weekly basis but for some time now, except for some instigated and isolated killings by criminals in a few villages, the state is very calm.

“We advise these politicians to use the money they want to use to mobilize the youths to sink boreholes, give students scholarships and organize medical outreaches for their people.

“Governor Lalong has invested in peace and security without sentiments than any other governor in the past. While not trying to rubbish the efforts of our former leaders, we must uphold the truth as mothers. Let’s give peace a chance so that we can fully return to that Plateau of our dreams.

“We want to strongly and passionately commend the officers and men of the Operation Safe Haven (OPSH), for the decisive and massive onslaught against kidnappers around the outskirts of Jos metropolis.

“We also want to commend the Plateau State police command for the arrest of some high profile kidnappers in Bokkos Local Government of the state some days ago.

“If it wasn’t the relentless efforts of this security outfit, nobody would have been able to sleep with two eyes closed today in Jos.
