Plateau governor-elect, Caleb Mutfwang, has promised to work with other leaders toward returning persons displaced by violent attacks, to their ancestral homes.
Mutfwang made the promise in Jos during the 2023 Nzem Berom celebration, the cultural day of the Berom people.
He prayed for an end to the renewed killings in Plateau, to enable citizens who have laboured over the years enjoy the dividends of democracy.
The governor-elect praised the Berom people for their resilience and commitment towards the rebuilding of Plateau, urging them not to relent as it was for the greater good of the state.
“By the grace of God, I will work together with other leaders to ensure that our people that are displaced from their villages are returned to their ancestral land.
“Berom land will flourish again; Plateau will flourish again; and Nzem Berom will attract other people, not only from Plateau, but other states in Nigeria and internationally.
“The history of Plateau cannot be complete without the history of the Berom. You cannot say you have developed Plateau without developing Berom land; you cannot secure the state without securing Berom land.
