The All Progressives Congress (APC) has appealed to Nigerians to use the occasion of this year’s Easter celebration to pray for the country’s leaders.
The chairman, APC Caretaker and Extra-ordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) and Governor of Yobe State, Mai Mala Buni made the call in a statement on Friday released by his director-general, press, and media, Alhaji Mamman Mohammed.
Buni said anyone who loves Nigeria must pray for the country and its leaders to be able to overcome its many challenges.
He noted that divine intervention is necessary at this point.
“As people of faith, we should dedicate ourselves to more prayers during the Easter to seek divine intervention and guide our leaders in the right way. We should see ourselves as a people with common dreams and aspirations for a greater Nigeria that is full of love, tolerance, unity and prosperity.
“We have no other country than Nigeria, we should therefore work to unify and strengthen our dear country,” the statement read in part.
He wished all Christians and Nigerians a peaceful Easter celebration.
Meanwhile, Yoruba activist, Sunday Igboho, has revealed why he did not accept the invitation of the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu.
The media aide to Igboho, Olayomi Koiki, in a statement released on Thursday noted that a letter was forwarded to his boss through a courier service and another with about 15 police officers.
He noted that the letter was not received by Igboho’s security operatives due to safety reasons as such a letter had purportedly led to the death of Nigerian journalist, Dele Giwa.
