A special prayer session organised by a group, North Central PDP Coalition For Atiku Abubakar 2019, was held with over 1000 Christian clerics at Faith Way Chapel International, Millionaires’ Quarters, Jos, Plateau state on Friday, December 21.
Leadership reports that while speaking at the prayer session, Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State, who is the coordinator for Atiku Abubakar campaign in North Central, represented by his principal special adviser on Special Duty and Administration, Dr Joseph Antyo, said the prayer will held to install Atiku as the president in 2019.
He said: “In the efforts to install Atiku Abubakar as Nigeria’s next president in 2019, we need God in the project because with God all things are possible.
“The choice of Atiku is an effort to rebuild this nation, anchored on his vast experience as a successful private investor and a God-fearing leader.
“We want all Nigerians, especially Christians to join us in these prayers by dedicating their time through their various churches to organise prayers for Atiku."
The General Overseer of Faith Way Chapel International, Rev (Dr) Sam T Alaha, who led the Special prayer session said: “It is wise for the Coalition to surrender their political program to God and it is good that the Coalition believes that all powers belong to God and whoever seeks power must come to God for blessings.
“Let me use this opportunity to call on Christians not to shy away from politics, because if Christians run away from politics, the unrighteous people will become the leaders of the righteous people.

“We will not shy away as a church from praying for whoever comes to us for prayers, and now that the coalition has come before God to seek His blessings, I will not hesitate to pray for them because whoever seeks shall receive, and whoever asks God to lead them in their campaign, God will certainly take the lead because you have asked from Him.”
