In view of the leadership crisis engulfing the All Progressives Congress, APC, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Yakubu Dogara, has sought divine intervention for the success of President Muhammadu Buhari and leaders at all levels of government.
Dogara stated this in a press statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Public Affairs, Turaki Hassan, during a church service at the Living Faith Church, Durumi, Abuja.
The Speaker said the challenges confronting the present crop of leaders in the country were not ordinary, adding that it required extra-ordinary prayers to overcome.
“I want to plead that the problems we face in the country now are not conventional and so conventional wisdom cannot solve them. We need divine wisdom.
“Without prayers, there is no way we can succeed. So I urge that prayers and supplication be offered for all the leaders beginning from the President to the least person in authority,” Dogara stated.
He said prayers were needed for leaders so that they could overcome all manners of obstacles.
In his sermon, Pastor John Adelekun who read from Matthew 6:33, called on the congregation to serve God and tap into His blessings.
Pastor Adelekun said those who serve God don´t beg to be lifted, stressing that they would be doing themselves favour when they serve God.
