Jos crisis will determine Nigeria’s future –Capt Joji

Captain Joji who is also the CEO of Sky power Airline, said unless the Federal Government is fast enough to stop the Plateau State Government from unlawfully seizing lands belonging to people described by the state government as settlers and restore lasting peace in the state, other state governments may be forced to adopt the Plateau State style thereby making it near impossible for any Nigerian to live and own a landed property outside his or her state of origin, a situation he said will further complicate issues in the country.

“My father went to Jos in 1918. They were pulling Beroms from a hole with rope, calling them to come out of their caves and work. They are now saying we are not indigenes. Their grandparents were not even born then. They never lived in the city or the town. They were living in the caves. What they are doing is not only political but religious.  They are using religion to stabilize their politics.

“Now they have introduced a new law that before you rebuild your land destroyed during the crisis you must get their permission. They decide who rebuilds his land and when they say you are Hausa/Fulani so you cannot rebuild your land that is all. So, we are appealing to the Federal Government not to allow this thing to happen. Once it is your land that the building was destroyed, you should be allowed to rebuild it whenever you have the means. No approval should be required from anybody. They have realized that the Hausa/Fulani votes can out vote them in the state and that is why they are looking for a way to send them out. They are scaring them to leave so that when it comes to election they will have it easy.

“I am appealing to my people, the Hausa/Fulani not to ever run away. If you bring the question of indigeneship, you could cause crisis in Nigeria. States like Kano, Sokoto, Borno, Bauchi could be forced to do the same and the whole Nigeria is finished.”
