The Executive Secretary, Plateau state Christian Pilgrims Board, Rev. Fr. George Gorap, has warned pilgrims undergoing the 2023 Christian pilgrimage to Jordan and Israel to shun any plans to abscond while performing the pilgrimage.

Gorap issued the warning on Sunday while those from Plateau, Ekiti, Osun and Kwara states were undergoing the pilgrimage exercise in Jordan and Israel for the 2022 batch.

Sources quoted Gorap as urging them to be law-abiding to enable their states maintain their good name in and outside Nigeria.

He said: “It is believed that people come here knowing exactly why they are here but on the other hand some people want to abscond and it is quite unfortunate.

“The best place to be is at home, people make the mistake of thinking far from the essence and the importance of coming here as a nation.

“It is our hope that after this exercise, these Nigerians will return home and grow the country together.

“Therefore, I urge you to shun the urge to abscond because if you are caught, you will face the full wrath of the law,” he advised.

Gorap added that the endeavour helps Christians to grow, unite Christians from all denominations and brings unity as a whole.
