Hausa Community Advocates New Capital For Plateau

Post  Admin on Mon Dec 21, 2009 7:27 am

For the return of lasting peace in Plateau State, the Hausa community under the aegis of Jasawa Community Development Association (JCDA), has recommended that a new capital be named for the indigenes.

The group stated this at the public hearing on the November 28, 2008 civil disturbances in parts of Jos under the General Emmanuel Abisoye Federal Government’s Investigation Panel, saying its members lost properties estimated at N11.6 billion during the crisis.

While the group believes that the governor and his kith and kin should be held responsible, the University of Jos on its part, stated that the numerous crises in Jos have affected the town’s international reputation, as the last crisis forced the Chinese authority to withdraw its nationals from the institution.

According to JCDA, “Pankshin local government of the state is more central and should be considered as the new capital of the state because the Berom tribe has an agenda against them, simply because it is afraid they want to take over the city of Jos which is the capital.”

Speaking through Yakub Sale Isa Aljasawi, its director of Research and Planning, JCDA said at the last count, the crisis left a total of 309 widows, 144 orphans, with colossal loss of lives and properties, adding that the state and Jos North local government should pay compensation to the affected persons.

He disclosed that Governor Jonah Jang used the police, soldiers and Air Force men to cause havoc to Hausas, because he hated them from time immemorial, insisting “all I know the people that killed us are the security men who are supposed to protect us.

“The Beroms, which the governor is one, has been envious of the progress of Hausas and other Nigerians, that was why they discriminate against them by sponsoring all sorts of inhuman treatment against them and their families.”

He disclosed how Plateau Hospital and the Jos University Teaching Hospital, denied Hausas and Muslims treatment during the crisis, which he added was unethical on the part of health personnel, but the government is yet to investigate and act accordingly by bringing them to book.

On their submission, the University of Jos said that both the students and staff now feel unsafe with the attacks on them and the properties of the institutions by their neighbours who are mostly Muslims from near-by Angwan Rogo.

The students, he added, cannot be accommodated within the campuses of the university because of inadequate facilities, but the crisis usually catches up with them on their way to or from the school after lectures and advised that something urgently should be done to curtail the situation.

Speaking through the Deputy Vice Chancellor, Administration, Professor Dauda Musa, the institution suggested that the Bauchi Motor Park, bordering the university be relocated to give the institution the serenity a global institution of its type deserves for conducive learning.

The panel sat without its Chairman, General E. Abisoye, who is reported to be ill. In his place was Ambassador Geoffrey Preware and seven other members.
