2023: Governor Lalong Asks Nigerians To Reject Destroyers Of Society

By Luka Retle Kumbet

Plateau State Governor, Simon Bako Lalong, has advised Nigerians to reject those who have criminal intentions and working “with the aim to destabilise society and cause pain” come 2023 General Elections.

The Governor gave the advice during the Carol of 9 lessons at the Government House Chapel Rayfield, Jos.

He also asked the people to be wary of those who try to use religion, ethnicity and politics to create crises in the State.

He, however, emphasized the need for citizens to participate actively in the political process towards electing credible leaders.

“My brothers and sisters, this Christmas is coming at a time when political campaigns are in top gear in the country ahead of the 2023 general elections.

“Let me use this opportunity to remind us that we have a duty to participate in ensuring that we elect leaders that will govern us.

“I encourage all those who registered and have not collected their PVCs to do so as the process is ongoing.

“Let us also encourage our people to embrace peaceful conduct before, during and after the elections as politics is not war and should not be a trigger for violence and hatred.

“We know that it is God who gives power to whomsoever he pleases. Eventually those who emerge victorious will still remain our brothers and sisters and have the duty to work for the good of our State and the country at large,” he said.

On his Christmas message, Lalong reminded Christians that Christmas is a season that rekindles hope despite the challenges facing the nation.

“The essence of our faith as Christians is to demonstrate God’s love to one another including those who do not share the same background with us.

“Jesus Christ showed us this example very strongly by loving and associating with those who were considered “sinners” during his mission on earth.

“As believers, it is our duty to ensure that we follow His footsteps by embracing people from every background and tolerating one another.

“So long as people are ready to abide by the laws of the land and respect the culture and traditions of Plateau State, they are welcome to live and pursue legitimate businesses in the State,” he said.
