Nigerian clerics have called for national prayers for President Muhammadu Buhari and the incoming ministers for God to assist the new administration and to make the country great.

Pastor Yohana Buru of Intercersory Fellowship, Sabon Tasha, Kaduna, disclosed this when a team of Christian and Muslim clerics paid him a visit at his residence at Sabon Tasha, Kaduna, on Sunday.

He said there was the need for collective national prayer to support President Buhari’s administration and the fight against corruption and security challenges.

Pastor Buru said Nigerian clerics were planning a national prayer, consisting 40 pastors and 40 imams for the new government to succeed.

In his remark, Malam Abdulrahman Bichi, a Muslim cleric in Kaduna, appealed to all faith-based organisations across the country to pray for the country and the government.

He urged Nigerians to unite and fight corruption by all means and shun all forms of ethno-political and religious crisis that could cause any setback for the country.

He stressed the need for all Nigerians, regardless of faith affiliation, to pray for peace, love and unity among all citizens.
