Politics Southern Kaduna: Ribadu Proffers Solution On How Peace Can Be Restored



A former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Mallam Nuhu Ribadu, has called for confidence building and sustained dialogue as the way out of the crisis in Southern Kaduna.

Ribadu, who was one of the mediators that helped to restore peace after about a decade of ethno-religious conflict in Plateau State, stated that dialogue within and among communities in conflict-ridden areas was the key to sustainable peace.

Ribadu said the problem in Southern Kaduna was not different from that of Plateau and that a renewed sense of urgency was needed in dealing with the issues at present and in the long term.


He said, “At the height of the crisis in Plateau State at that time, I decided to reach out to a couple of friends within the community. I reached out to people I thought we could initiate something.

“I got Shehu Baba from the House Fulani Community, a respected young man and told him we can’t sit down and do nothing. We started talking.

“I also reached out to my good friend, Yusuf Pam, from the Birom Christian community, a former Attorney-General of Plateau State and we started by doing a proper research to understand the problem, study it and proffer solutions.”

According to him, lessons learnt from the sad episode in Jos should guide against a repeat anywhere else.
Just wait and pray, but malam got all the equalities to be called a leader. Soon everlasting peace will restored there InshaAllah. God bless malam Nasr and guide him to a straight parth.
