We won’t rest until you get justice, VP Shettima assures Plateau Community



President Bola Tinubu’s administration will not rest on its oars until victims of the gruesome attacks on communities in Barkin Ladi and Bokkos local government areas of Plateau State get justice and the residents are safe.

Vice President Kashim Shettima gave the assurance when he visited crisis-ravaged communities in Plateau State to condole with the people and state government over the recent killings in Barkin Ladi and Bokkos local government areas of the state.

Vowing vehemently that the Killings on the Plateau and other parts of the country must stop, the VP said, “Now Please accept our heartfelt condolences. Please accept our deepest apologies. Because we won’t rest until you access justice and until you are safe.”

Shettima informed the people about how heart-broken his principal, President Tinubu, had been since he received news of the gory incident, saying the president “is deeply shaken by this tragedy and shares in this unspeakable sorrow that has shattered the joy of Christmas across the country.

Identifying with the grieving families who lost loved ones in the attack, the Vice President acknowledged the fact that it is an indescribable nightmare to bury families, describing it as a rare experience that is much more unbearable than the pain of losing one or two loved ones.

VP Shettima assured the people that the Tinubu administration is out to protect them and ensure justice, even though it may appear as if the government has failed them in their time of serious need.

Noting that justice is the path to collective safety, unity, and healing of the nation, he said, “We came to power promising to uphold the sanctity of every citizen’s life, and now is the time to reassure you that this inter-community violence, which has hijacked the humanity and serenity of this beautiful State over the past decades, will never persist under our watch. We will harness all our resources to bring those responsible to justice; we will not rest until we are able to prevent the recurrence of these heinous acts.

He however appealed to the people of Plateau State to resist what he described as “the temptation to succumb to sectional divisions or the poisonous rhetoric of hatred towards” their fellow citizens while assuring that the government is set out to ensure justice and security for them.
