Gov. Caleb Muftwang of Plateau has urged Christians to pray for sustainable peace in the state.

The governor made the call during the thanksgiving service of the traditional ruler (Mishkaham) of Mwaghavul, Da John Hirse, on his 80 years anniversary.

The thanksgiving was held on Sunday during the church service of the Church of Christ in Nation (COCIN) Headquarters, Jos.

He said that prayers were crucial for the leadership of the state to conceive initiatives that would ensure long lasting solutions to insecurity in the state.

He decried the attacks in some communities in Mangu local government area and other parts of the state and thanked God for the relative peace.

He implored the congregants to imbibe tolerance and respect for different culture and religion of people resident in the state for harmonious coexistence.

Muftwang also admonished congregants against negative ethnic profiling of residents in the state, saying criminals should be exposed and their acts condemned irrespective of their backgrounds.

“May God expose the criminals amongst us because he who comes in equity must come with clean hands. So, when you come to God for prayers, your prayer must also be on a good plan for the righteous man,” he said.
