Nigeria: Politician Calls for Prayers for Good Governance in Nigeria

Special Adviser on ICT to Gov. Ibrahim Wamakko of Sokoto State, Malam Nasiru Zarumai, on Monday called on Nigerians to pray for their leaders to ensure good governance.

Zarumai told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Sokoto that a prayer was crucial at this material time for God's intervention in the affairs of the country.

He said that Nigerians were blessed with leaders who were focus but needed God's guidance to ensure good governance.

He added that the dreams of Nigerians to overcome their difficulties would only be a reality if Nigerians assisted the leaders with fervent prayers.

"For the smooth implementation of the ongoing reforms Nigerian must seek divine intervention," he said.

Zarumai also called on Nigerians to pray for the sustenance of the nation's young democracy.

"Democracy has come to stay in Nigeria, all that is expected of us is to pray fervently for our creator to ensure its sustainability for the overall political development of our country," he said.

He further called on the Federal Government to equip the nation's security outfits with modern facilities to ensure the safety of Nigerians.

"Nigerians must be seen to live in peace with one another through effective security network," he said.
