The speaker, Taraba State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Abel Peter Diah, has urged victims of anglophone crisis in the Republic of Cameroon who are taking refuge in Sardauna local government area to adhere strictly to the laws of the land.
Diah, who stated this yesterday in the border town of Gembu during the disbursement of the financial assistance to victims of Sardauna crisis said Taraba State government is not stopping the victims of Anglophone speaking areas from coming into Nigeria, but they should endeavour to obey the laws of the land.
“We are not stopping the Cameroonian speaking Anglophone area from coming into Nigeria, but all what we are saying is that they should leave according to the laws of the land.
Even in Cameroon, we have our people who are living in their country and we believed they are living based on what the laws of the country says,” he said.
He explained that the disbursement of the financial assistance to victims of crisis in the local government shows that the government is with the people.
“This distribution of financial assistance today is a sign that the governor’s quest to ensure that peace reign on the Mambilla is non-negotiable.
“As we can all see today, all the tribe on the Mambilla Plateau are here to witness this disbursement of financial assistance, and with this, we can all agree that permanent peace has returned to the Mambilla,” he explained.
He urged the people to continue to live in peace to enable the present administration bring dividends of democracy to their door step.
On his part, the paramount ruler of Mambilla Plateau, His Royal Highness, Dr Shuhu Audu Bajo II, thanked the governor for working tirelessly to ensure that peace returned to the Mambilla Plateau, adding that the creation of six chiefdoms on the Mambilla Plateau would also help to coordinate peace in the rural area.
