President Muhammadu Buhari has urged Nigerian Christians to pray ‘fervently for the country’s unity and progress”.
Buhari made the appeal in a message today to felicitate with Christians on the solemn occasion of the commencement of this year’s Lenten season.
“The President urges Christian brothers and sisters to pray fervently for the country’s unity and progress”, said the statement by Femi Adesina, the special adviser on the media.
Adesina said President Buhari believes that Nigeria’s existence as one united country is a divine arrangement and nothing should be done to put it asunder.
“President Buhari enjoins all Nigerians to intensify love, brotherliness and concern for the less privileged members of their communities in order to strengthen the bond of togetherness.
“As Christians begin the period of increased prayers, piety, sacrifice and selfless services, the President wishes them and all Nigerians well,” Adesina said.
