Nigeria: Makurdi Residents Seek God's Intervention

Makurdi residents have resolved to pray for God's intervention concerning the security challenges facing the country instead of relying on leaders in 2013.

Our correspondent, who went round Makurdi, reports that the people were optimistic that their security comes from God and that God would save the country from all insecurity and other problems next year.

"Our security is in the hands of the Lord, we would go to him, cry to him, petition him, and appeal to him for the forgiveness of the sins of Nigeria, we know our God, He would never let us down.

"We would serve God wholeheartedly from tomorrow (January 1, 2013) so that He would intervene in our security challenges in the country. We would pray so that God will change the minds of our leaders and they would fulfil their promises", they said.

Mr. Macikpah Ata of AT-JAY collection Makurdi said God would take all the glory for all his wonderful works in 2012 while Mr. Terhide Anede said he had resolved to be more committed to God's work in 2013 due to his wonderful works in his life and that of the state in 2012. (NAN)
