Chairman of Mangu local government of Plateau State Barr Caleb Mutfwang has said that the 17 elected council chairmen as dissolved by Governor Simon Lalong do not have any evil intention against him.
Mutfwang said, even with the illegal dissolution of the local government structures in the state, all the council chairmen have been praying for the Governor to succeed and will never plan evil against him as being spread by some All Progressives Congress, APC supporters in the state.
The council boss stated this yesterday during a Church thanksgiving service organised in his honour held at COCIN LCC Ampang West, Mangu LGC of the state.
He said the word of God has instructed Christians to pray for leaders in authority, and as such, they will as council chairmen continue to pray for Governor Simon Lalong to succeed in his four year tenure as the governor of the state for the development and betterment of the state.
“The word of God has instructed us in his Holy book to pray for those in authority and we will continue to pray for Governor Lalong to succeed as the leader of the state.”
While speaking on the reason for his thanksgiving, the council chairman said he had every reason to give thanks to God for his faithfulness upon his life and that of his family, adding that when one gives God thanks He rises on his behalf.
The preacher and Reverend in charge of the Regional Church Council, Ampang West, Rev. Ishaku Dikut while taking his Bible reading from the book of 1st Thessalonians chapter 5 verse 14-18, charged Christians to give thanks to God in all circumstances that they found themselves.
The clergy challenged all political leaders not to pay back wrong for wrong but to always try to be kind to one another and to everyone else.
“As Christian leaders I want to charge you not to pay evil with evil but in all circumstances, give thanks to God for His faithfulness.”
It would be recalled that the Plateau State Governor, Barr Simon Lalong had on the 6th of July 2015 terminated the tenure of the elected council chairmen.
