Plateau State Governor Simon Lalong yesterday, on behalf of the people of the state, asked for forgiveness from all those who lost loved ones in the almost two decades of crises that engulfed the state.

Lalong also declared February 7 as a day of forgiveness to be observed as an annual public holiday in the state as a day for sober reflection and prayers.

“We also ask for the forgiveness of all who have lost their relatives, to all ethnic nationalities and communities of Plateau who were affected, we are also not oblivious of the fact that some foreigners who came to our state with good intentions may have been affected one way or the other and we say we are sorry and ask for your forgiveness. To security agencies that lost their personnel during this period, we are sorry and ask for your forgiveness,” Lalong said.

Lalong directed Operation Safe Haven to station its men around the garden, an initiation of the Interfaith Mediation Centre in collaboration with the Plateau State Peace Building Agency, saying it would serve as a safe place where all forms of anger and misunderstanding will be resolved.
