Nigeria needs continuous prayers – Oshiomhole

Edo State Governor, Adams OshiomholeBENIN — GOVERNOR Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State said, yesterday, that Nigeria needed constant prayers from both Christians and Muslims for God to intervene in its problems.

Oshiomhole, who stated this during a luncheon organised for the leadership of  the state chapter of Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, said:  “For the past five years, I realize from time to time, that we have cause to ask CAN/PFN to organise interdenominational services, to pray for the state, government and even Nigeria because we have so many problems.

“For the past five years, the church has been interceding for me, my family and the state; hence the luncheon, to thank God for what He has been using you, and will continue to use you, to do for the peace and unity of the state.”
