The governor of Plateau State, Simon Bako Lalong, has called for the continued support of the armed forces in their efforts to make the nation safe for all, urging Nigerians not to condemn them over challenges that arise in the cause of their duty.
The governor stated this on Friday, at the wreath laying ceremony to mark the 2021 Armed Forces Rememberance Day, held at the Joseph Gomwalk Secretariat, in Jos, the Plateau State capital.
While also praising members of the armed forces for their sacrifices in protecting the territorial integrity of the country and for intervening in domestic security, he said the sacrifices of the fallen heroes must not be left to go in vain.
“Let us continue to support our armed forces who are still in active service through every means as they deserve our love. We should avoid condemning them over challenges that could arise in the cause of their duties. They are slefless and have done alot to restore security in many areas particularly in Plateau State. We are grateful for their contributions and continue to pray for their souls to rest in peace”.
According to a statement by the Director of Press & Public Affairs to the governor, Makut Simon Macham, Lalong who is the Chairman of the Northern Governor’s Forum assured of Plateau State Government’s continued to support to the members of the Nigerian legion and their families through empowerment and related programs.
He also appreciated all security agencies and their families for their continued support to collaborate with the State Government in consolidating the peace and security of Plateau State.
