Hon. Musa Ashoms Says Bukuru Incident in Bad Faith, Assures of Government Commitment to Move the State in the direction of Positive Transformation

Plateau State Commissioner of Information and Communications, Hon. Musa Ibrahim Ashoms has said the attacks on Task Force Personnel and Traders by hoodlums in Bukuru Market is in bad faith and provocative.
He said the State government under Governor Caleb Mutfwang is determined to move Plateau State in the direction of positive transformation and nothing will stop the attainment of the noble objective.

He disclosed that Task Force executing the Executive Order 003 made to carry out its lawful duty in the Bukuru metropolitan area were attacked which led to the destruction of property.
He said It is unfortunate that elements fixated on the old ugly path of retrogression are trying to impede the march of progress saying no amount of resistance by beneficiaries of a bad system will stop the progress being made.

In his words “In line with its brief, the JMDB Joint Task Force was at the Bukuru Market in Jos South Local Government Area to ensure that businesses were in operation within the ambit of law, given that the market was designated by government to accommodate only lawful activities without provision for street vendors.

“But like an apparition of the recent Ahmadu Bello Way incident where resistance to the enforcement of this order led to the tragedy of that day, gangs of miscreants came at the task force once again.

He continued: “We condemn the destruction of property and sympathize with those pained by the losses incurred. We assure the public of government’s capacity to not only rein in this emerging tendency but to also bring perpetrators to book.

“We see this recurring bad behavior as not only sad, but provocative. That government’s authority to enforce law and order for the common good, in spite of massive publicity and engagement, can be so brazenly challenged amounts to blackmail to which government is not ready to succumb.

“As a government that embodies the legitimate aspirations of its citizens, we recall the massive publicity and engagement with stakeholders and various communities”
