Envoy Rallies Support For Buhari In Mambilla Plateau


BY AMEH IDUJAGI, JALINGO – The Nigerian Ambassador to Trinidad and Tobago, Alhaji Hassan Ardo has said that the multi billion naira Mambilla Hydro Power Project would provide jobs for at least 75 thousand people.

Addressing a rally of supporters of the All Progressives Congress (APC), in Gembu, headquarters of Sardauna Local Government, Ardo said the dam project would improve the livelihood of millions of Nigerians particularly those from the immediate environment of the plant.

He said that all the current and past conflicts in the area over land would be brought to rest because several job opportunities would be available to the youths, adding that the people of Sardauna LGA and Taraba at large cannot afford to refuse to re-elect President Muhammadu Buhari for the singular decision to actualise the project that has been on the drawing board for more than 40 years.

Ardo advised the people of state to vote for the APC all through so that they can enjoy full and uninterrupted dividends of democracy.

The envoy, who took time to separately visit each of the five major tribes of the area comprising of Mambilla, Fulani, Kaka, Panso and Kambu, called for continued peaceful coexistence among them in order to benefit from the Federal Government projects, programs and services.

Ardo, who described the recent Mambilla crisis as very unfortunate, cautioned against the politics of religion, tribe or section, saying that it was dangerous to achieving lasting development.

According to him; “Some failed politicians who have ran out of ideas would be trooping in with bags of money to preach religion and ethnicity. Please, collect the money but vote for APC to carry out its people oriented programs. Do not listen to people, who will come to you to campaign based on religion or ethnicity.”

Thousands of APC supporters came out to welcome the Ambassador, who led prominent stakeholders from the area to garner support for all APC candidates in the forthcoming 2019 general elections.
