As a son of the soil, i want us to live in peace, SGF tells Adamawa communities


The Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, has called on the Bwatiye and Fulani communities in Adamawa to sheathe their swords and work towards a sustainable peace.

Mustapha made the call while on a condolence visit to the Hama Bachama, Hama Batta and the Fulani communities in Numan, Demsa and Yola, respectively.

The SGF, while speaking at the palace of Hama Bachama and Hama Batta, condoled the monarchs over the losses in their communities as a result of a communal clash.

He also enjoined the traditional rulers to strengthen the fabrics of peace in their communities and in the state at large.

“We have been living in peace with one another for a very long time in an era that was deemed ‘primitive’, I don’t see why we should resort to fighting in an era that is called a time of civilisation.

“No one in this state has lived harmoniously with the Fulani people like the Bachama person, so let’s find a way to promote peace among our people and go back to the way we used to be.

“The Federal Government is working to ensure a lasting peace in the country and as a son of this community, I want us to ensure that everyone in leadership position works towards peaceful co-existence.”
