”Present Nigeria to God for healing and restoration” — Peter Obi tells Christians

Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in the 2023 elections, is encouraging Christians to pray for divine intervention in Nigeria during the final stretch of the Lenten season.

Obi urged Christians to present Nigeria to God for healing and restoration during the holy week.

In a message shared on his X handle on Sunday, Obi said the period presents another moment of reflection on the challenges that Nigeria is facing.

He wrote, “Even as we make our human efforts, as a people, to move our nation forward, we must leverage the solemnity of this season to pray for divine intervention in our nation.

“The hearts of many are heavy with pain, grieving the loss of their dear ones due to the high level of insecurity in the nation.

“Families are hungry, not knowing where their next meal will come from because they can no longer afford the basic necessity of food.

“Many of our fellow Nigerians have died in their struggle to find food to eat. The unity and love in diversity, for which our dear nation was known, have been sacrificed on the altar of tribal and religious division.

“Let us, therefore, present our nation to God for healing and restoration, in this Holy Week, so that as we labour, as humans, for the New Nigeria, it will become even more possible.”

Holy week is the period between Palm Sunday and Easter, which is from Sunday, 24 March 2024 to Saturday, 30 March 2024.
