The Governor wishes to assure our citizens that Security Personnel will continue to patrol flash points within the greater Jos-Bukuru Metropolis, and they will ensure that all security measures as are necessary to guarantee peace, security and compliance with the new curfew order are done so as to avert any likely bridge of law and order.

He further plead with all peace loving citizens to ensure that they cooperate with all Security Personnel and report all acts by persons that are likely to constitute a bridge to the hard earned peace of the State
