He made the disclosure at the Palm Sunday Mass at St. Gabriel’s Catholic Mission, Tyav, in Makurdi.
The Governor said he received calls from several concerned people of the state who appealed to him to forgive them. He added that he was also acting in obedience to biblical injunctions which admonish believers to leave revenge to God as stated in Romans 12: 19 and 20.
“Never seek revenge, my friends, but let God’s anger do it. If your enemies are hungry, feed them; if they are thirsty, give them a drink; for by doing this, you will make them burn with shame.”
“I will allow God to defend me because He made me Governor through the good people of Benue State and He knows that I’m here to serve the state selflessly, I hereby declare that I have forgiven all those who have told unprintable lies against me and will withdraw all legal charges against them”, he stated.
The Governor said his administration will not be distracted by attacks from the same people who had failed the state and have now resorted to sponsoring protests against his administration.
