25,000 pastors to pray for Buhari’s ambition in Lagos


The presidential ambition of the All Progressives Congress, APC, standard bearer, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (rtd.), and his running mate, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, is about to receive spiritual fillip as 25,000 pastors and evangelists in the South-west have concluded plans to stage a special prayer session for the candidates at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos on on Tuesday.

The coordinator of the programme, Bishop Kayode Williams, told newsmen that the ministers of God will be congregating to seek divine support for Buhari and Osinbajo.

The coordinator, who explained that the spiritual exercise, tagged “Divine Restoration of Nigeria Glory”, is being organized to disabuse the minds of Nigerians about the wrong impression being created about Buhari, said, “We are four spearheading this prayer session: My humble self, Rev. Moses Iloh, Archbishop Magnus Atilade and Deacon Ayo Opadokun. We are against wrong information being fed members of the public about Buhari.

“For those of us that followed the track record of Buhari while he was in public service, we know that this man is not a religious bigot. Buhari is an upright man and not anti-Christ as some people want to portray him,” he stated.

Williams, who described the prayer session as a unique event, urged Nigerians to avoid using religion to confuse people or to divide Nigerians.

He said, “First and foremost, we should see ourselves as one. We are all Nigerians. We should not allow politics to divide us or cause bitterness among us. We should love one another. It is wrong for anybody or group to say Christians are against Buhari – to us, Buhari is a righteous Nigerian, and Christianity preaches righteousness, and we want righteous people in leadership, and this is why we are organizing this prayer for Buhari to be the next leader of this country,” he stated.

While reminding Nigerians to always remember that the country was a secular state, Williams enjoined them to be tolerant of one another’s faith, views and opinions.

He went on to announce that Buhari and Osinbajo will feature as special guests at the prayer session which will be attended by other eminent Nigerians.
