Handover a Peaceful Plateau to Next Government – PPPN to Gov. Lalong
Plateau Peace Practitioners Network has appealed to Governor Simon Bako Lalong of Plateau State to take proactive measures and nib in bud the terrorist activities in the state to enable him handover a peaceful Plateau to the incoming government.
Chairman of the network, Pwakim Jacob made the appealed today at the end of a 3day training for Trauma Healing Facilitators which was organized by a member organization of the network, known as Back on Track Charity Foundation in Jos, the Plateau State capital.
Pwakim opined that handing over the baton of leadership to the next government in the state on May 29, amidst the ongoing attacks and killing will jeopardize the 8 years peace building effort of the rescue administration of the Lalong’s government.
“We are begging him to handover the state in peace so that the next governor will not start dealing with security issues first. If at the end of the day the new government come in while the state is still boiling then it means that he never did anything all through his 8 years in proffering solution to the conflict in Plateau or to the attacks in Plateau” added the PPPN chairman.
Mr. Pwakim appreciated Back on Track Charity Foundation for their uncommon services to humanity despite not accessing grant for any project yet. He promised to always accord them all needed support where necessary to succeed as members of the network of Peace Practitioners on the Plateau.
Chief Executive Officer of the foundation, Mr. Ayuba Bulus said the objective of the training by back on track charity foundation is aimed at bringing back traumatized people in the society to Christ and also help them see that no matter the trouble, it’s not the end of their lives.
To the participants, Mr. Bulus was happy with their participation and urged them to go and put what they have learned into practice to help the society.
Mr. Bulus noted that aside trauma healings, back on track have also supported the less privileged in the society and are also providing skills acquisition to teaming youths in schools and scholarship to 2 Students in Secondary Schools while they are seeking admission for one in the tertiary Institution.
Some participants who spoke shortly after receiving their certificates at the end of the 3day training, Carolyn Izang and Samuel Selchang all appreciated God and the foundation for finding them worthy to be their ambassadors in shaping the society by bringing healings to traumatized people.
They noted that through the training, they understood that sometimes trauma if not well manage can lead to madness and trauma healing sometimes need no medicine, but talking to the right people and voicing out the lead issues.
