The ban on public procession by whatever guise and name is still in force. This was contained in a press statement issued by Hon. Dan Manjang, Plateau State Commissioner for information and Communication.
THE PRESS STATEMENT
It has come to the notice of the Plateau State Government that there are rumours of a planned protest beginning tomorrow Tuesday 7th September, 2021.
While Government acknowledges and respects the right of citizens to peaceful protest, it however reminds the general public that the ban on public procession by whatever guise and name is still in force particularly at this time that the State is still nursing its wounds from the recent attacks that affected some parts of the State.
Government therefore warns the organisers of the purported protest to drop the idea in the interest of peace and security.
Security agents have been placed on red alert to rise up to the challenge by arresting anyone who violates this directive.
The Government also enjoins all law abiding citizens to go about their normal duties without any fear of molestation or intimidation.
Parents are also advised to rein in their wards and continue to support the Government in working for the restoration of total normalcy to the State.
ALWAYS THINK PLATEAU AND ACT PLATEAU.
