Taraba is among the least developed state in Nigeria in terms of infrastructure today and you will agree with me that the breach of peace among citizens contributed 60 per cent to that. As a former president, I believe that peace is generally the responsibility of the citizens to attract development while development and unity among people are the responsibility of the government. There cannot be development if peace is not giving it a place to stay, I urge you, citizens of Taraba, to embrace peace and prioritize it for the speedy development of the state.
