    Governor Simon Lalong of Plateau State has further relaxed the curfew imposed earlier on Jos North Local Government Area of the state.

    Lalong who announced this in a statement on Tuesday night also said the ban earlier placed on the operations of tricycles has been lifted.

    “Similarly, Governor Lalong also approved that beginning from Tuesday 8th September 2021, the ban placed on operations of tricycles will be lifted from 6am to 6pm daily. This means that no tricycle will be allowed to operate between the hours of 6pm to 6am.

    “However, the ban on motorcycles within the Jos/Bukuru Metropolis remains intact as enforcement will continue to ensure that violators are arrested and punished according to the law”.

    According to the statement, government was working on innovations, legislation and enforcement modules for enhancing the security, effectiveness and availability of public transportation in the state, which it said will be unveiled in due course and is expected to address the major concerns of the citizens particularly as it relates to the safety of passengers.

    Governor Lalong while appreciating the cooperation and understanding of the citizens during the period of the attacks and subsequent curfews, urged them to continue to support government in restoring normalcy to enable the state resume its normal trajectory of hospitality, opportunity and productivity.

    Lalong also thanked all stakeholders within and outside the state for their concerns and goodwill towards addressing the recent ugly developments, assuring that his administration will continue to pursue the path of peaceful coexistence while dealing with criminals and crises merchants who are bent on tarnishing the enviable image of the state.
