The Minister who, gave thhe assurance while briefing news men after an emergency meeting of the FCT Security Committee in his  official residence, said: “the purpose of the meeting was to review the situation in the South East and its implication for the residents of the FCT as a Centre of Unity. “We are properly briefed, and the whole idea is to ensure that FCT remains as peaceful as it has always been.
“We also used the occasion to receive update on the situation of law and order in all the Area Councils and satellite towns. “From all the reports we received FCT is peaceful.
“It is very clear that from what we read from the social media and some other electronic media, there are some people out there who clearly want to create trouble in this country. Obviously government would not allow this to happen and certainly, in the FCT, we would not allow that to happen.
“That is why I am calling on all residents to ignore any negative report they read on the social media platforms that tend towards disunity, disaffection and targeted clearly towards trying to create trouble.
“In the FCT, all the ethnic groups, religions and creeds are fully represented and live harmoniously. The laws of the land are very clear and anyone trying to foment trouble would be dealt with according to law. To this effect all the security agencies have been placed on heightened alert.”
Malam Muhammad Bello appealed to residents, especially those from the South East to live peacefully and carry on with their lawful businesses without any fear.
“The Administration will not shirk it responsibility for the protection of lives and property in the FCT.”
He called on all the traditional rulers and council chairmen ensure that their areas are well secured down to the grassroots.[myad]
