The Edo State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has called for one-day prayer and fast, for peace in the state and Nigeria.
In statement, the State Publicity Secretary, Pastor Joseph Osagiede, said the prayer and fast will take place on Friday 21, 2020 from dawn till 12.00 noon.
The statement reads, “This is to inform all members of the All Progressives Congress in Edo State, well wishers of our great party and friends of Godwin Nogheghase Obaseki and Comrade Phillip Shaibu, that a one day prayer and fast, has been fixed for this Friday, 21st of February, 2020.
“During the period of fasting, which commences from dawn till 12.00 noon and beyond, members are to pray for peace in our country Nigeria and in Edo State in particular.”
According to Osagiede, “We are also to pray that all those who are trying to make Edo State ungovernable for our Governor, Godwin Obaseki, should have a change of heart, as there can be no meaningful development in a state where there is anarchy.”
“Furthermore, we should thank the lord God for giving us a corrupt free, articulate and mass – oriented Governor whose developmental strides are visible to all and sundry, even the trouble makers.”
“Let us therefore commit him and his deputy to the hands of the Most High God for protection and divine wisdom to fulfil the mandate freely given to them by Edo people”, it added.
