Women from all works of life on Wednesday converged in Abuja for a one-day prayer and fasting session for the speedy recovery of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The women, led by President of the National Council for Women Societies (NCWS), Mrs Gloria Shoda said the prayers had become necessary to ensure the good health of the president.
“We have been praying as individuals in our closet but this time, we have decided to hold this open prayer for our president.
“We want him to recover quickly and return to work. The council has decided to make this prayer a monthly routine to ensure that things work well in this country also.
“Nigeria belongs to all of us and it is our responsibility to always pray for our leaders, most especially our president, irrespective of our political affiliations,’’ she said
Shoda said that the prayer session was also held to ask God to restore the glory of Nigeria and move the country forward.
Also speaking, Anna Nosike, the founder Gender Support for Women Emancipation and Empowerment Development told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) the prayer session was to bring down the Hand of God upon Nigeria.
