President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday arrived in Plateau State on a two-day official visit.
The President, who was received at the Yakubu Gowon Airport by the Governor Simon Lalong and other officials, later attended a town hall meeting where he continued his call for peace in the country.
During the meeting, the President launched the Plateau State Roadmap to Peace and vowed to end the violence that has claimed hundreds of lives in several states in the country.
“Let me express the Federal Government’s commitment to support and assist the Peace Building Agency in its effort to arrest the vicious cycle of violence and lay the foundation for sustainable peace in our country,” he said.
The President, however, believes that the government alone cannot guarantee peace and that traditional rulers are critical to the sustenance of peace and order in the country.
He, therefore, urged them to spread the message of peace to their subjects.
