Some youth on Friday organised a prayer programme for the quick recovery of President Muhammadu Buhari and the unity of Nigeria.
The prayers which commenced on Thursday evening, ended on Friday afternoon at the Eagle Square, Abuja.
Chairman, Board of Trustees, National Youth Council of Nigeria, Chief Makole Azugbene thanked the participants for praying for the country.
He said, “Today, Nigeria our fatherland is faced with a situation where our maximum efforts are yelding minimum results. The youth have been abused, misused and left despondent.
“Yet, rather than resort to violence, they have chosen the path of peace. The youth is the hope of this country and as such deserve special attention. Our leaders must not live their today and tomorrow that rightly belonged to the youth.”
Chairman, Forum of State Chairmen, National Youth Council of Nigeria, Amb. Sara-Igbe Sukubo said religious harmony is practicable in a multi-religious country like Nigeria.
“By this prayer programme, we redefined the uniqueness of our diverse ethnicity as a fulcrum for national unity and strength,” Sukubo stated.
