Abuja - The Kogi Youth Council (KYC) on Monday declared a three-day special fasting and prayers for Gov. Idris Wada, who was involved in a car crash on Dec. 28.
This is contained in a statement issued by the Chairman of the council, Mr Emanuel Godwin, in Abuja. The statement stressed the need for all youths in the state to commence the fasting and prayers for the quick recovery of the governor. It also called on Nigerian youths to join their Kogi counterparts in prayers for the speedy recuperation of the governor, saying that "Wada was a lover of the youth.''
Besides, the council appealed to the Federal Government to intensify efforts on road rehabilitation and construction to avoid further loss of lives daily. Wada sustained leg fracture in the crash while his aide died on the spot. He is receiving medical attention at the Cedarcrest Hospital, Abuja, where a surgical operation had been performed on him by an Orthopaedic consultant, Dr Felix Ogedengbe.
Ogedengbe told newsmen in Abuja that the governor was recuperating after the surgery was carried and would be discharged from the hospital "in a few days".
