We prayed for you – Lalong tells Dariye



The Plateau State Governor, Simon Lalong on Friday August 12, 2022 told a former governor of the State, Joshua Dariye that his family, his cabinet members and the entire State prayed for him during his incarceration in Kuje Prison.

Lalong told Dariye that the Plateau People were filled with joy when news of his release filtered on the pages of newspapers.

The governor stated this when he led a top delegation from Plateau to the residents of Dariye and former Governor of Taraba State Rev. Jolly Nyame in Abuja, to rejoice with them over their release from prison after being granted pardon by the President.

According to Lalong: “The entire State received the news of your release with joy because they have been praying for you since your travels and incarceration happened.

“Much prayer and appeal was made towards the pardon granted to you and thankfully, the President was magnanimous to accept to grant the pardon”, Lalong said.

The Governor while appreciating President Muhammadu Buhari for giving Dariye another opportunity, said this is the time for Dariye to reflect and forgive people that may have offended him as has been his practice during previous challenges.

He prayed to God to continue to give him sound health even as he offered advice to the State while making available his vast knowledge for the good of the people.

Responding, Dariye said he was full of appreciation to God for making his release possible and also using people like Lalong and President Buhari to make his release possible.

He narrated his ordeal in prison and said it was a difficult moment but God saw him through and made him survive.

Dariye debunked the rumour that he was running for Senate describing it as unfounded and untrue as he has not bought form or done anything to that effect.
