He maintained that Plateau is known for peace and tourism and thus, "We want that back".

Musa tweeted:

"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."
