Nigeria: Cross River Workers Hold Prayer Sessions for Imoke

Calabar — Workers in the employ of the Cross River State government have started holding special prayer sessions for their ailing governor, Senator Liyel Imoke.

Early December, the governor got the nod of the state House of Assembly to hand over to his deputy to enable him travel abroad for medical treatment.

Daily Trust gathered that the state's head of service, Mrs Mary-Theresa Ikwen, directed the workers to pray for the speedy recovery of the governor.

Also at the state Ministry of Education in Calabar, the Permanent Secretary, Mrs. Ann Odey, called on the staff to pray fervently for the governor's recovery.
