Nigeria: Gaidam Urges Christians to Pray for Peace

Governor of Yobe State, Alhaji Ibrahim Gaidam, has called on Christians across the country to use the occasion of the Christmas celebration to pray for peace and security of life and property.

He noted that this year's Christmas, like last year's, came at a time that the country is going through challenging times, especially in the area of security of life and property.

He said Christians should not relent in prayers and devotion to the Almighty God for divine intervention and deliverance.

Gaidam urged all the people of the state, Christians and Muslims, to continue to live and work together in peace and unity in order to attain sustainable social development.
