President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday condemned the recent violence in Plateau State, which led to the imposition of a curfew in Jos.

In a statement sent to OkayNG.com by his spokesperson, Garba Shehu, the president stated that he was deeply worried about the seeming indifference to the sanctity of life by criminals.

The president said: “I know it is not an easy thing. It is a very difficult thing. But the resultant peace achieved by the people of Plateau state should not be squandered.

“Every citizen deserves stability and development. Peace has no alternative. It is my appeal to all the communities in the state capital, and the entire state as a whole to embrace peace.”

“Where there are differences, dialogue should be used to bring about understanding. There is also the due process of the law. Differences cannot be resolved by abuses or by bullets.”

Buhari also revealed that some politicians were promoting ethnic and religious prejudices for cheap popularity, despite the knowledge that such incitement could play into the hands of hate mongers.
