Nasarawa guber tribunal judgement: Over 1,000 women converge to pray for justice
Ahead of the Nasarawa State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal judgement in the state, over 1,000 women from various religious assemblies across the 13 Local Government Areas of the state, yesterday held a prayer rally for peace and God-fearing judgement in the state.
The women said they were gathered to cry to God in prayer for divine intervention for justice to be done so that peace can reign in the state. They also prayed for justice for the governorship candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, Dr. David Ombugadu whom they alleged, was voted massively in the March 18 election in the state
The women dressed in black attires rendered emotional songs in Hausa, carrying placards with several inscriptions during the rally, have held series of prayers asking God to intervene and deliver the state from hostages and injustices.
Speaking shortly after the prayer session in Lafia, the leaders of Nasarawa Women Coalition for Justice, Hanatu John, explained that the reasons for the rally was to seek the face God in the case involving Dr. Ombugadu of PDP and Governor Sule of APC.
Hanatu who expressed confidence that God will not fail the aged women in their prayers under the scorching sun, will give wisdom and courage to the judges presiding over the Nasarawa governorship tribunal to deliver judgement with the fear of God.
“All residents of the state including members of the All Progressives Congress are aware that the PDP candidate, Dr. David Ombugadu won the March 18, 2023 election, not the incumbent governor, Abdullahi Sule, as announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission.
“These women you see here are over 1,000 in number cutting across various faith. They voluntarily came out from all parts of the state to pray for the person residents of the state gave their mandate to because they are tired of the APC led government. They no longer want to be deceived, that is why they are all gathered here today in solidarity with the PDP.
It would be recalled that Dr. Ombugadu had dragged Governor Abdullahi Sule to court after the declaration of Abdullahi Sule as the winner of the March 18, 2023 governorship election in the state.
