About Berom

The Berom (sometimes also spelt as Birom) people are the indigenous ethnic group of the Jos Plateau in Nigeria. Within Plateau State, they are concentrated mostly in the local government areas of, Jos South, Jos North, Barkin Ladi, and Riyom. They speak the Berom language, which has no link or etymology from the Hausa language as claimed by some Hausa's of Northern Nigeria. The Berom people have a rich cultural heritage, which is unique and portray God_s sovereign attributes. They celebrate the Nzem Berom festival annually in March or April. It is one of the major aborigine group in Nigeria (Plateau State) that "totally" looks to or trust God (Dagwi)for its existence, sustenance and history. The current governor of Plateau State, Jonah David Jang, is a Berom.
