Clerics advise Lalong not to be distracted by praise singers, critics



Clerics under the aegis of Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) have advised Gov. Simon Lalong of Plateau not to be distracted by praise singers and critics.

The group led by Rev. Stephen Dangana, Chairman, Plateau Chapter of PFN, gave the advice on Tuesday in Jos when they paid a courtesy call on the governor.

“Remain focus on what you are doing, don’t be distracted by those that may praise you in your presence.

“Only God knows what they may say behind you.

“Don’t also allow those who may criticise and even insult you, don’t follow what they are saying or doing in order not be distracted.

“Continue to look up to God in everything you do because it is God who sets up kings and it is God that dethrones kings,” Dangana said.

According to him, human beings trust their strength, wisdom and ability but stated that strength and wisdom come from God.

They congratulated Lalong for his re-election and described it as an act of God.

In his response, the governor told the clerics that it was the prayers of people like them that is sustaining the state and making the impossible possible.

He said that his philosophy was to face his enemy with love as love could neutralise enmity.

Plateau is blessed, nobody can take that away from us. As a matter of fact, we are the Jerusalem of Nigeria.

“When we pray, God will forgive us and bring back the glory of Plateau and that  is happening now with the return of peace,” he said.

He assured the clerics that he would continue to work for peace in the state.

Lalong said that there could  be no development without peace.
