Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, on Sunday, led some clerics to pray for God to grant Nigeria victory over sponsors and perpetrators of violence in the country.
The prayers were offered during the dedication of two Churches in Abuja.
VP Osinbajo used the occasion to pray for an end to the spate of violent attacks in parts of the country.
According to Osinbajo, as Federal Government continues to work hard at finding solutions to the challenges confronting the nation, clergymen and congregants should also pray fervently for the nation to overcome these challenges.
The vice president first visited the Archbishop Metropolitan and Primate of all Nigeria Anglican Communion, Most Revd. Henry Ndukuba.
Ndaukuba, assisted by Bishop of Kubwa Diocese, Bishop Duke Akamisoko, led the prayers for the security, peace and prosperity of Nigeria.
Archbishop Ndukuba prayed for God to give the President and the Vice President and other officials of the present administration wisdom to lead the country.
Also Bishop Akamisoko of Kubwa diocese prayed for unity of the nation.
The Bishop prayed for God to grant wisdom, good health, sound mind to Osinbajo and Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, to be able to administer the country successfully.
Prayers were also led by Pastor Idowu Iluyomade, Assistant General Overseer and Regional Pastor, RCCG Lagos.
While thanking God for His blessings, he prayed for leaders of the country, including the President and his vice, saying sponsors of trouble in parts of the country will soon be arrested.
He noted that “God would intervene and arrest those causing trouble in the country.”
The cleric offered prayers for unity of the country, peace and protection of leaders.
Dignitaries at the dedication of the new church building include Sen. Philip Aduda; Minister of Women Affairs, Dame Pauline Tallen; the SGF, and a former Information Minister, Prof. Jerry Gana, among others.
