Former Minister of Defence, retired Lt General Theophilus Yakubu Danjuma Saturday called for peace and justice in Taraba State to ensure the much needed development in the state.

Speaking while being conferred the traditional title of ‘Gam Gbaro Donga’ (War Field Marshall) by the Gara Donga, Dr Stephen Danjuma Banyonga at his palace in Donga council of Taraba State, Danjuma commended the Gara Donga for the honour as well as his efforts in maintaining peace and unity among the Chamba people in Taraba, Adamawa, Togo, Ghana and Cameroon.
“When there is peace, our people can dance and rejoice; without peace, there will be no development. I pray that people in our land continue to enjoy peace; we need justice from our rulers; we need justice from our politicians. Without justice, there can be no peace”, he said.
The Gara Donga, Dr Stephen, said the conferment of the title was in recognition of his contributions to the development of the area as well as his philanthropic gestures for the less privileged.
