Governor Jonah Jang of Plateau State yesterday faulted those who lay the blame for the persistent crisis in Jos or any part of the state at his door steps saying the crises pre-dated his administration and cited the declaration of a state of emergency in the state in 2005 by former President Olusegun Obasanjo as evidence of his claim.Jang, who stated this yesterday at the Governors Lodge Jishe during his midterm media interaction, said critics blaming him for the crises that the state has experienced even in the years that he has been governor were being unfair to him as he has no hands in any of them.

The governor said he has been unfairly blamed for a crises he neither caused nor exercised control over as he has no power to command a fly how much more, the security agencies which owe their allegiance to federal authorities in Abuja.

In his words, “That is why we are calling for the creation of state police, there are responsibilities that federal police cannot handle except state police, because they know the terrain and speak the same language with the people.”

Jang, who noted that no crisis could be won through the barrel of the gun, remarked that his administration would continue to dialogue with relevant stakeholders to consolidate on the peace which he said the state currently enjoys.

On the call for the withdrawal of the special Task Force STF on Jos crisis codenamed ‘Operation Safe Haven’, the governor said, “If the STF pull out from Jos today, the police will then come in. When Mr President is satisfied with the situation, he will do what is right.”
