The Speaker, Nasarawa State House of Assembly (NSHA), Hon. Ibrahim Abdullahi Balarabe, has called on Nigerians to pray fervently for divine intervention to overcome the security and other challenges bedeviling the nation.
Balarabe, who made the call in Umaisha, Toto Local Government Area of the state, said prayer is paramount in overcoming the challenges facing the country.
He therefore, tasked Nigerians to pray for President Muhammadu Buhari and other leaders to succeed in the tasks ahead of them.
“I want to use this medium to call on Nigerians to pray fervently for the nation, particularly at this period of security challenges we are going through.
“Let us pray to the Almighty God to intervene in this trying period of security challenges,” he said.
Balarabe appreciated the government and security agents for curtailing security challenges in his constituency and the country at large.
“My Local Government, Toto, has been in the news for the past few years over security challenges. I thank God, with the intervention of both the federal and state governments, the situation is now stable,” he added.
Balarabe also called on Nigerians to disregard calls for revolution in the interest of peace and development.
“Those calling for revolution do not wish the country well as President Buhari had performed credibly well, especially in the area of insecurity, corruption, among others,” he said.
