The Emir also described Bassa people as custodian of peaceful coexistence amongst their neighbours, but stressing that for lack of knowledge and wisdom that fact is being disputed.

“We should rise up and seek knowledge and wisdom because I believe that is the only way you (Bassa) can overcome the challenges you are facing in Toto LG and beyond. I will also add by saying that there is no gain in conflicts, he who dies, died forever”.

In his response HRH Dr. David W. Tukura thanked the Emir for his warm reception and also appealed for his support to ensure that his people returned to their homeland.

The group also paid a similar visit to Distinguished Senator Abdullahi Adamu, the former Governor of Nasarawa State, at his country home as a sign of respect, peace and unity.
