Super Eagles Captain Ahmed Musa Speaks On Plateau Crisis, Sues For Peace

2 min read

Following renewed violence in parts of Plateau State, Super Eagles captain, Ahmed Musa, has called on all and sundry to maintain peace, lamenting that the circle of violence and attendant killings were getting out of hand.

Musa, who took to his X handle (formerly Twitter) to plead for peace in the beleaguered Plateau State with several hashtags, partly hails from the State. He is currently part of the senior national soccer team competing for honours at the ongoing 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament in Ivory Coast.

The Super Eagles striker also tasked political leaders to focus on what really matters by keeping people safe and bringing back the peace once enjoyed on the Plateau.

Ahmed Musa wrote: ” A Heartfelt Plea for Peace in Plateau

“Dear Plateau Family and Nigerians as a whole,

“Our state is hurting, and we need to come together. The fights, the killings– it’s too much. We are all one big family, no matter our religion. Most families in Plateau have both Christians and Muslims. We should be celebrating our differences, not fighting because of them.

“Let’s ask our leaders to focus on what really matters: keeping us safe and bringing back the peace we once had. Plateau used to be known as the Home of Peace and Tourism. We want that back.

“So, let’s stand side by side, no matter our religion. Hold hands, pray, and ask for peace. We can do this if we all work together.”
