Mr Simon Lalong, the immediate past governor of Plateau, has called on Nigerians to pray for the state to overcome its current security challenges.
Lalong made the call at a dinner organised in his honour by the 1990 set of the Faculty of Law, Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), Zaria.
Chairman of the set, Sylvanus Tahir, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), and his set put together the event, which was held on Sunday night in Abuja.
The ex-governor, who decried the wanton killings and destruction of properties in the state, said there was a need for Nigerians to collectively pray for the return of total peace in the state.
” I call on Nigerians to pray for Plateau and its people so that we can overcome the current security challenges
”I left the office as governor of Plateau only a few weeks back but the current happenings in the state are worrisome.
“I have always been on my knees praying that when I leave office, Plateau should be better than where I left it.
“I will continue to pray and this is why I am calling on all Nigerians to support Plateau people with prayers,” Lalong urged.
