Former deputy governor of Plateau State, Dame Pauline Tallen, has called on Nigerians to join the President and his Vice in praying and remain hopeful.
“We should be a nation that has faith in our leaders, and let us be positive; the good signs are already shown. Let us trust God that we’ll get to the promised land,” she said.
The ex-deputy governor was speaking to reporters in interview shortly after the graduation of the Senior Executive Course 39 in NIPSS Kuru, near Jos, on Saturday.
“We know that for the past 6 months, our president has health challenges, but because God’s hand is upon him and God still wants to use him in this country, he has fully recovered; he is back to discharge his duties.”
According to her, “that is enough sign that God is always in this country, and we are very hopeful that good things are on the way coming.”
People of Plateau state, she said, “should not be upset about the president not being here personally; we know that his heart and mind is with us and he his particularly happy because peace has returned.”
Dame Tallen noted that, “If peace had not returned, then he would have been more worried. I am sure that the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo’s coming is equally as good as the President’s coming, because he has already proved to us that he is equal to the task in discharging the duty that is expected of him,” she said.
