“I pray that the peace, God has granted the state will continue to be sustained, foreign Direct Investment can only come into the state when there is peace and security, I thank God today that the era of war, kidnapping and robbery is over in the state as it had massive effects on investments in the state,” Dr. Uduaghan added, stressing that “for the peace to continue we must continue to pray and supplicate on behalf of the state.”

In an Exhortation, the chaplain of the chapel, Rev.
