He said ensuring that no part of the country is left out of the administration’s pursuit of development is the only way to foster peace, unity and development.
Shettima gave that assurance on Friday when he hosted a traditional ruler of Mangu in Plateau State, the Mishkahan Mwaghavul, John Hirse, who led a team on a courtesy visit to his office at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The Vice President assured the delegation that peace would be restored in Mangu in the shortest possible time, noting that President Tinubu is aware of the situation and therefore the inevitable return of peace to all troubled areas of the country.
He stated: “The crisis in Plateau State has nothing to do with religion. It is only right that we understand ourselves and live peacefully with each other. Plateau State is a land blessed with Muslims and Christians. What unites us replaces what divides us.

“This administration will deploy all resources to address all political contradictions in the bid to restore peace and harmony in the state.
“We will, by the grace of God, address all the internal contradictions, political overtones, and even ethnic nuances that are part of the conflict and ensure that we find a lasting solution.
“Ours is a great nation chained by the so-called social contradictions that we have in the system and it is essential that for the peace and development of our nation, we restore the trust of the people and the government.”
Earlier in his remarks, Hirse said he and members of his delegation were in Aso Villa to show their appreciation and thank the vice president for attending his coronation.
