Plateau State Governor and Chairman of the Northern Governors Forum, Simon Lalong has said that the passion of the Archbishop of Abuja, Ignatius Kaigama passion for peaceful coexistence and justice is “legendary”.
Kaigama, Lalong said in a message congratulating him on his 62nd birthday, “worked tirelessly while in Jos to bring people together and encourage them to dialogue, forgive and reconcile with one another irrespective of their differences.”
“We cannot thank His Grace, Archbishop Kaigama enough for the role he played in ensuring that peace returned to Plateau State. He demonstrated the true essence of the love of God by embracing people from different religious, ethnic and social backgrounds and motivating them to love one another at all times”, Lalong said in the message signed by Dr. Makut Simon Macham, Director of Press & Public Affairs to the Governor.
Plateau State will continue to remain home to the ex Catholic Archbishop of Jos, said the Governor, “as the people have enormous respect for him because of the love, generosity and goodwill he showed them in his many years of preaching the gospel in the State.”
