According to The Cable, the President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari has said presiding over the affairs of the nation is not a joke and so Nigerians should pray for the country.
Speaking on Tuesday while breaking his fast with some members of his cabinet at the presidential villa, Buhari said prayers can assist the country to overcome its economic and security challenges, The Cable reports.
“Leading the people is not a joke. It means accepting responsibilities for good or wrong. We need a lot of prayers. This month of prayers and service to God, let’s keep on these prayers all the time, believing that God in His infinite mercy will listen to our prayers, give us peace, security and better the economy once more so that we can quickly rebuild and even do more for the country.
“With the nation’s economy going down… We haven’t developed the agriculture, we’re still trying to talk on those who’ll come and develop the solid mineral for us,” he was quoted to have said.
