The Plateau State Governor, Simon Lalong has asked citizens  to translate the love shown him at his 55th birthday into the consolidation of peace in the state and beyond.

In a statement issued by state Commissioner of Information and Communication, Yakubu Dati, the Governor challenged citizens to be their brother's keeper and submit themselves to the ideals of nation building.

The Governor who called for support for President Muhammadu Buhari assured that the president will "navigate the country out of its present difficulties".

Lalong in the statement said he is humbled by the goodwill messages received through different channels, pledging to improve on quality service delivery within available resources.

The statement says Lalong deliberately kept his birthday low-key in line with his "humble disposition'.
