Church organises special prayer for Buhari, Osinbajo

31 May 2015, 16:28

Ikole - Members of the Christ Apostolic Miracle Church, Ikole in Ekiti State, on Sunday, organised a special prayer session for the new administration to succeed in its efforts at transforming the country.

The three-hour prayer for President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, was anchored by Pastor Olusola Adewumi.

Adewumi enjoined Nigerians to pray for both leaders and the entire nation "because prayer is the only weapon to achieving success".

"This has become imperative because prayer remains the only spiritual weapon that can enhance the needed change Nigerians are clamouring for.

"The tasks before the new government are enormous and require the support of all Nigerians through prayers and obedience to the nation’s law.

"Let us abide by the constitution, be our brother’s keepers, be hard working at our places of work and pay our taxes when due."

Adewunmi said the nation had been plagued by problems, but prayer was the only solution to solve the problems.

He added that "it is the responsibility of all who love the nation to pray for the new government to succeed."

The cleric called on government to do its best for the nation, saying history would judge whatever they do.

The congregation also called upon God to give the duo divine wisdom and understanding to direct the affairs of the nation.
