Unity Stressed by Rep Musa Bagos as Key to Moving Plateau State Forward Following Divisive 2023 Elections
In his inauguration reception held at Tamarald event center in Jos on June 18, 2023, Dachung Musa Bagos, the Member representing Jos South/Jos East Federal Constituency, emphasized the significance of unity for the progress of Plateau State. The recent elections had resulted in deep divisions among the people of Plateau due to varying political interests.
Bagos, who is beginning his second term as a member of the House of Representatives, called for the new mandate to be built on unity, encouraging the active involvement of citizens and stakeholders within the constituency. He assured the public that his second term would be even more fruitful, stating, “We want to assure you that you will not regret this mandate.”
In the company of his beautiful wife, Rep Bagos expressed deep gratitude to his constituency for reelecting him, Bagos urged all supporters of the Peoples Democratic Party in the state to unite and collaborate for the sake of success, which would translate into the dividends of democracy.
The legislator also addressed the unfortunate resurgence of violent attacks resulting in loss of life and property. He highlighted the lack of capacity of the previous administration, including the governor, to mobilize state policing to address such situations effectively. Bagos appealed to the Federal Government to respond promptly, apprehend the perpetrators, and restore peace and order in the state.
“We need state police, and the federal government should understand the gravity of the situation and take appropriate action. We demand the arrest of the perpetrators and justice for the communities that have endured these attacks,” Bagos asserted.
Anticipating his second term as the representative for Jos East/Jos South Federal constituency, Bagos assured his constituents of significant progress. He encouraged them to expect remarkable developments during his tenure.
Governor Caleb Mutwang of Plateau State, represented by Deputy Governor Ngo Josphine Piyo, congratulated Bagos on his reelection, commending the decision of the constituents based on his exemplary performance in the 9th assembly. The governor expressed confidence in Bagos’ ability to deliver even more as he begins his tenure in the 10th assembly, stating, “I know that you will do more, and the sky will be your limit.”
Governor Mutwang also extended condolences to the people of the state for recent unsettling events, urging them to remain resilient. He assured the public that the government was committed to doing everything within its power to restore peace to the affected areas.
The inauguration reception witnessed the presence of the newly elected Reps Member Peter Ibrahim Gyendeng, Barkin-Ladi/Riyom Federal Constituency, the Speaker, Deputy Speaker, and several members of the Plateau State House of Assembly. Dignitaries, royal fathers, party supporters, stakeholders, and well-wishers gathered in large numbers to celebrate the thanksgiving service of Hon.
