The Gbong Gwom, Da Jacob Buba and the Emir, Alhaji Suleiman Adamu made the pledge when Buba visited Adamu on Friday, at his palace in Bauchi.

Buba, who expressed regrets over the unfortunate crises in the two states, described the incidents as “devilish acts’’ which must be nipped in the bud in future.

“The people of Plateau and Bauchi States have a history of peaceful co-existence. I therefore urge them to continue to embrace the cordial relationship that has existed over the years,” he said.

Responding, the Emir also expressed regret the crises in the two states and stressed the need for leaders to continuously preach the message of peace and unity to their subjects.

“I call on the people of Plateau and Bauchi States to cooperate and fight the enemies of disunity”, the Emir admonished.

The Emir thanked the Almighty God for choosing Buba as the new Gbong Gwom and expressed confidence in his ability to work for the return of lasting peace to Plateau.

Alhaji Adamu described leadership as a big challenge and urged the Gbong Gwom to face it with boldness and sincerity while praying for God to lead him through the onerous task.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the visit was the Gbong Gwom’s first official trip outside Plateau since his coronation on May 16.
