Group rejects renaming of road in Jos after Buhari

A Christian group under the aegis of Arewa Christians and Indigenous Pastors Association (ACIPA) has condemned the re-naming of Mararaban Jama’a – Bukuru road after President Muhammadu Buhari by Lalong.

Buhari, who is currently in Jos on a two-day working visit, commissioned some projects executed by the Governor of the state, Simon Bako Lalong, launched Plateau Peace Roadmap, and held a town hall meeting with stakeholders in the state.

Lalong had on Thursday re-named the newly constructed road after the President, who commissioned it.

The group in a press statement signed by Reverend Luke Shehu, rejected the re-naming, describing it as “obvious blunder of Governor Lalong in a desperate effort to please the Grand patron of Fulani, flag bearer of Danfodio Jihad and the recently coronated Bayajidda. Not only did Lalong mischievously claim credit for Jang’s PDP projects, Lalong has just re-named the Mararaban Jama’a to Bukuru express way after Muhammadu Buhari.

“Lalong does not know the relevance of Mararaban Jama’a road as a gateway to Jos.”

“The entire Plateau people must arise and protect our collective heritage and value before the hangman’s noose is pulled under our very eyes”, he stressed.

Aside from the Mararaban Jama’a road, the President also commissioned Secretariat Junction Flyover and Miango Road before proceeding to the Gbong Gwom palace where he met with the state traditional council.


It was, however, gathered that most of the projects were commenced by the past Governor of the state, Jonah David Jang, but completed by Lalong.
