Saraki wants more prayer for Nigeria
The Senate President, Bukola Saraki has pleaded with Nigerians to pray fervently for restoration of the nation’s dignity.
Saraki, yesterday, at the programme he organised for Christian widows and women representatives across churches in Ilorin, believed Nigeria’s potentials would be divinely restored due to the saints’ prayers.
He said: “We should not give up hope on our great nation. We should continue to pray for the return of our nation’s glory. I believe it is the prayer of pious Nigerians that is still keeping the nation together as an indivisible country. Better times will come when we don’t stop praying. Nigeria has great potentials and very soon, those potentials will begin to manifest.”
Saraki, represented by Deputy Chief of Staff of the Senate President, Gbenga Makanjuola, thanked them for honouring his invitation, promising to meet the requests of women agitating for more political slots in the next dispensation.
Bags of rice and groundnut oil were donated to about 2,000 participants.
Speaking at the event, Special Assistant on Christian Affairs to Kwara State Governor Alhaji Abdulfatah Ahmed, Rev Cornelius Fawenu, said Saraki’s gesture was in line with scriptural command to love and generously give to the needy.
