NIGERIA: Kaduna to Release White Paper on 2011 Election Violence

The Kaduna  State Government is to release a white paper  on the April 2011 post-election violence  in the state.
The state Deputy Governor, Ambassador Nuhu  Bajoga, disclosed this yesterday at the 19th  synod of the Kaduna Diocese  of the Anglican Communion in Kaduna.
 
Bajoga said the state government was working in earnest on the recommendations of the Peace and Reconciliation Committee set up by the previous administration as a result of the 2011 crisis.
 
According to him, “very soon government will release a white paper but before a white paper is issued, the state executive council has to approve and pass a decision after which government can begin to implement the suggestions of the committee.
 
“There are many suggestions in the report of the committee but very soon government will take a decision that will ensure peace and reconciliation in the state.”
 
The deputy governor urged citizens of the state to remain calm and live peacefully with one another, assuring  that the state government will do everything within its powers to  ensure the security of lives and property of the  citizenry.
