Mr Dogo Shammah, Nasarawa State Commissioner for Information, Culture and Tourism, has called for continued support and prayer for Governor Abdullahi Sule in his quest to deliver the much-needed dividends of democracy to the people of the state.

Shammah made the call on Friday while speaking at a meeting with traditional rulers in Wamba Local Government Area of the state.

He urged the people of the state to continue to live in peace and tolerate one another, irrespective of their ethnic or religious affiliation to ensure development.
