Danji SS Visits Rafin Kada, Tsokundi; Wants End to Tiv/Jukun Crisis

Member Representing Wukari/ibi Federal Constituency at the House of Representative Hon Danjuma shiddi last weekend embarked on a peace tour to communities affected by the recent Tiv/Jukun communal clashes within his constituency, calling on residents to embrace peaceful co- existence.


Hon. shiddi  who's famously known as Danji S.S visited both  Rafin kada and Tsokundi communities of Wukari Local Government Area of Taraba state, known hot beds for the crisis lamenting the wanton destruction of properties in the area.


Hon. Danji SS while sympathizing  with the victims  for the unfortunate Jukun/ Tiv clashes that claimed lives and properties worth millions of Naira on both sides restated his commitment to ensuring that the crisis is put to an end.


At the palaces of Garsheya Danasabe Tsasen the Garpivalla Of Rafinkada and Manu. Musa Ba'aku Kundi Wasenbu of Tsokundi chiefdom, Danji SS lamented that the continuous crisis has crippled economic activities of the area and has prevented farmers from harnessing the raining season for planting.


 He emphasis on the indispensability of peace for any meaningful development be it social or economic, calling on stakeholders to be at the forefront of ensuring that peace reigns and for them to protect government properties within their domain. 

     Residents of the communities who trooped out in their large numbers commended Danji SS for visiting them in a period they felt abandoned by elected political officer holders from the zone.   

Express their gratitude and joy for the show of love from the Member for identifying with them at their trying period, a resident said

"this is the kind of leadership we want in Southern Taraba, our elected leaders should come and see the effect of this baseless crisis on the area, not sitting in Abuja and Jalingo without doing nothing to help resolve the crisis."
