By Yakubu Dati, Commissioner for information and Communication.
As part of measures to further protect lives and properties of citizens, the Plateau State Government hereby bans public processions in all parts of the state.
Members of the public are therefore advised to adhere strictly to the ban.
This is to prevent miscreants and unpatriotic elements from hijacking any protest to further inflict pain and hardship on innocent citizens.
The ban will enable Government take stock of the security situation in the state.
Government appreciates the democratic right of citizens to protest but it also has a duty to ensure nothing negatively affect them.
Government therefore solicits the cooperation and support of citizens for a peaceful Plateau State.
