* An initiative Maiha local government authority should support generally and generously - UN-POLAC
By The Periscope Reporter
Maiha local government, northern senatorial district of Adamawa state, northeast Nigeria, has formed a Federated Peace Group FPG aimed strengthening peace building, stability, and social cohesion as one of the key components of the Multi-Sectoral Crisis Recovery Project MCRP.
This peace initiative, the Periscope editorial articulated, should not be a dream of any better time than now when the northern senatorial district of the state has been liberated from the complicity to conspiracy and occupancy of Boko Haram insurgents.
When the LG chairman, Hon. Idi Ali Amin, a Peace Ambassador, with a view to combating banditry and kidnapping with impunity, initiated and hosted an international peace and security summit that has yielded positive results with the arrest of inter-border bandits and kidnapper kingpins.
When the Appeal Court, sitting in Yola, finally and totally halted any form of impersonation, fantastic executive dictatorship and fascist nay coercive imposition if an unfashionable impostor to disorder the historic order with hypocrisy, complicity to conspiracy for anarchy against the monarchy for a new rather unfascinating order-turned cock and bull story in Jalingo-Maiha, so disheartening, distasteful and disinteresting to relate.
When the citizens are in communion, having committed to devotion in total submission to the will of the Creator to restore peace, love and unity and chased the hypocrites and anarchists away from the district and indeed the local government.
A time when the district headship of Jalingo-Maiha district, where the headquarters of Maiha local government is situated is legitimately decided by judiciary means, in tune with the Mubi Emirate Council selection, the choice of the legitimate, peace loving, peace living people of the district, making also the God’s choice.
The Federated Peace Group comprised of the following peace groups:
Jalingo Maiha Peace Association
Vokuna Pakka Peace Association
Mbilla Peace Association
Sorau Peace Association
Belel Peace Association
Mbuta Peace Association
Channel One Peace Association
GSS Maiha Peace Club.
To be able to run the activities of the group effectively and and efficiently, the FPG members have, based on consensus, selected their executive members.The list is as follows:
1 Prince Abdussalaam Abubakar – President
2 Alh. Mijinyawa Shuaibu – Vice President
3 Ahmad Maunde – Secretary
4 Zubairu Umaru – Assistant Secretary
5 Hauwa Yunusa – Treasurer
