The Nasarawa State chapter of the National Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN), on Thursday commended Gov. Simon Lalong for curtailing persistent clashes between herdsmen and farmers in Plateau.
Alhaji Mohammad Idris, chairman of the body, in a statement in Keffi, said that the security measures adopted by the governor toward resolving the clashes had minimised killings in the state.
Idris also applauded Lalong for promoting religious tolerance and commended the governor for “running an all-inclusive government that gave all segments of the state a sense of belonging”.
He also commended the governor for establishing the Plateau Peace Building Agency and the Plateau Peace Roadmap, saying that the two feats were landmark initiatives aimed at restoring peace.
Idris also hailed Lalong for clearing the backlog of unpaid salaries he inherited, saying that the measure had minimised tension in the state.
