Plateau State, since 2001, has seen recurrent cases of violent conflicts. Within this period, over 7000 lives are estimated to have been lost.
The recurrence of the conflict has, as a result, added conflict resolution into the list of campaign issues. The current administration in Plateau State, led by Barr. Simon Bako Lalong, has, in its bid to ensure an enduring peace, come up with a blueprint to lasting peace. It is known as the Plateau State Road Map to Peace. It was unveiled by President Muhammadu Buhari during his visit to Plateau State on March 8th.
