Senator JT Usaini donate palliative to Irigwe community
Former PDP governorship candidate of plateau state senator Jeremiah Useni (Rtd), has sent a high powered delegation to the Irigwe kingdom.
The visit was to condole with the people of the community over the recent attacks which left scores of people dead. In his message, JT Useini called on the security personnel to rise to their responsibilities.
The delegation delivered 15 bags of rice and One Hundred Thousand Naira cash to the Irigwe Traditional Council as the state went on yet another lockdown on Sunday Midnight after a four day indoor break.
“When I heard about the attack, I was very sad. I was also amazed that even when there was complete Lockdown of the entire state because of the Coronavirus, killings could still go on without any challenge.
“I call on the security forces to rise to their responsibility and protect the people from harm. But, we must also be very alert, keep the peace and continue to pray to God as a community.”
Member of the Plateau State House of Assembly, representing Rukuba/Irigwe Constituency Hon Musa Agah Avia, said “Senator Useni’s gesture has really strengthened the Irigwe community.”
The Brra Nggwe Rigwe, His Royal Highness, Rev Ronku Aka, in company of the District Head of Miango and three Village Heads, received the delegation in his palace at Miango, and thanked Gen. Useni for his caring heart. The Brra Irigwe lament that hunger is ravaging the people more than Coronavirus.
“Your action has refreshed us. We request you, Sir, to speak for this community using your network wherever you go. We are pained by these weekly attacks which have become worse than coronavirus. We want peace in this land.”
The delegation sent by Sen Useni was led by the former Director General of the JT Useni Campaign Organisation, Prof. Dimis Mai-Lafia, the PDP Deputy Governorship Candidate in the 2019 election, Dr James Dalok, the PDP Chairman of Bassa LGA Maurice Manga, and many Elders of Bassa LGA.
