Senate president Ahmad Lawan has said that Nigeria needs prayers to overcome its challenges, adding that the security agents should also be remembered in prayers as they ensure that Nigerians are protected.
Lawan stated this on Wednesday, October 16, while receiving in audience a delegation of the Christian Legislators’ Fellowship of the National Assembly, Vanguard reports.
Legit.ng gathers that the delegation was led by the deputy Senate president, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege.
Lawan said: “Given the situation, we are in today, the various challenges that Nigeria and its people face, we even need to pray more.
“Today, we face serious security challenges. Where we have security agencies which are mandated to ensure that we are secured and protected, if nothing, we should pray for them that they are able to perform well.
“It is not only in empowering them with weapons; the power of God is beyond weapons. I’m sure that all people of faith will continue to pray for our security agencies to protect us."
Senator Omo-Agege said nobody can achieve anything without the blessings and mercies of the Almighty God.
Lawan added: “I believe that this country needs prayers, and that this country needs unity amongst all faith. We all worship one God, and he is the only way through which we can have our country led properly."

Lawan gave the assurance on Friday, October 11, at the unveiling of the Legislative Agenda of the House of Representatives.
