Gombe monarch urge IDPs to return home, rebuild communities
Alhaji Saleh Mohammed, the paramount ruler of Kaltungo, Gombe State, has urged Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) to return and rebuild their respective communities following relative peace recorded in the country.
Mohammed made the appeal in Kaltungo on Sunday in his Sallah message while speaking with newsmen.
He said returning to their various communities would signify the end of crisis and can play an important role in preventing further displacement.
According to him, the only safe environment for displaced persons is to return back to their homes and places of origin as important task of peacebuilding.
“Returning home signifies the end of crisis and it will help the displaced persons to rebuild their communities for political, socio-cultural and economic development,” he explained.
The monarch further called on security personnel to be civil in their encounter with the civil society.
He said no matter the situation, security agencies should understand that they were meant to build peace, maintain law and order.
He commended Gov. Inuwa Yahaya for prioritising health, adding that his passion for health will go along way in addressing the challenges in the sector.
He also commended the Federal Government for providing anti-snake venom in sufficient quantity at the snake bite treatment centre in Ka9ltungo.
The first class traditional ruler also prayed for a bumper harvest.
