Plateau communities receive relief material

19 May 2014, 11:35

Jos - The Senator representing Plateau North Constituency at the National Assembly Gyang Nyam Pwajok, has distributed relief materials worth millions of Naira to communities displaced by recent rainstorm and communal clashes  in Jos South and Bassa Local Government Areas of the State.

Abe Aku, Senior Legislative Assistant to the Senator, presented the relief material to representatives of Jerek, Dangyel, Rukuba and Irigwe.

He expressed utter dismay over the communal clashes that rendered many people homeless and appealed to leaders of the communities to explore all means of resolving their differences amicably.

“The bloody clashes would have been averted if the people of Rukuba and Irigwe had adopted traditional means of resolving the dispute instead of resorting to violence,” said Aku.

The items donated included bags of assorted rice, maize, garri, sugar, fertilizer, blankets, soaps and assorted food items.
