MAKURDI – The State Government on told displaced Kwande  people currently camping in Makurdi to return to their communities and tend to their farms.

Mr Peter Torjune, Permanent Secretary, of Rural Development and Cooperatives made the call in Makurdi.

Torjune spoke when the Chairman of PDP in Kwande Local Government Area, Mr Terkula Azua-Ikyur, led other party officials on a visit to the camps.

He said if they don’t go now “in the present cropping season, there would be acute food shortage in the next harvesting period.’’

Torjune advised them to respect the peace initiative of Gov. Gabriel Suswam.

He also charged them to contemplate launching a reprisal attack on the communities in Taraba, following speculations that Fulani herdsmen were harboured there.

Torjune, therefore, enjoined people to be very supportive of Suswam’s administration in order to continue to deliver democratic dividends. (NAN)
