President Muhammadu Buhari has made a clarion call to Nigerians especially religious leaders to pray fervently for the nation to be at peace and secured.

The president in a statement issued yesterday by his Media Adviser, Femi Adesina, called on all Nigerians, especially religious leaders, to intensify prayers for the peace and security of the nation.

As the Prelate-elect, Aba assumes office on December 1, 2022, the president wished him a successful stewardship, while urging him to build on the laudable legacies of the out-going Prelate.
