Nigerians mobilised to the Eagle Square, Abuja, to “pray for President Muhammadu Buhari and the peace of the country” have accused the organisers, the National Youth Council of Nigeria, of denying them their promised incentives.

PREMIUM TIMES interacted with some of them Friday night at Wuse 2, where they had grounded the a vehicle belonging to the chairman of the Taraba chapter of NYCN, identified as Emma George.

They believed Mr. George collected money meant for them but decided to pocket the funds.

“We were mobilised from far far places, Keffi, Mararaba,” one of them said, “and we started the prayer 9 O’clock and till now we have not eaten any thing.”

“We can’t even go home because we all brought other people. We were promised N1,500 each but Emma George from Taraba pocketed our money. So, we heard they wanted to hold meeting here (Chelsea Hotel), we then decided to come. We didn’t see him but we seized the car from his driver.”

The aggrieved “hired prayer warriors” said they would take the vehicle to Mararaba.

“Is that how to move Nigeria forward? Money meant for many people was taken by one person,” queried another person, Arume.

They said the prayer at the Eagles Square had the backing of the wife of the President, Aisha Buhari.

As matter of business, in Abuja there are individuals who help politicians organise protests, rallies and other actions with incentives to participants, mostly poor jobless citizens living in the suburbs of Nigeria’s capital city.

    so now politician can get prayers for money which answer such prayers all that get themselves involve in this mess should read Micah 6:7-8-Will Yahweh be pleased with thousands of rams, with an overabundance of oil libations? Should I offer my firstborn for my sins, the fruit of my body for my wrongdoing?”
    “You have been told, O man, what is good and what Yahweh requires of you: to do justice, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God

    Gradually, the truth is coming out. Such prayers will be hijacked by Satan because God will never entertain the prayer of cheats for insincere leaders.

    • You know so much about the devil, because you’re one with him.

        I am not one with him. Those who stone him KNOW him and are with him. You sound like one.

    “Hired prayer warriors”! Surely they prayed NOT to GOD but Satan.

    This is how a few Fulanis have enslaved the majority of the no Fulanis in the whole of northern Nigeria. They have laid a stranglehold on the south west. Their last frontier is the South East and South South. But it seems the core politicians are ready to sell the South East and South South for peanuts so that their children could continue to live in Western countries. But once in a lifetime someone like Kanu appears. I hope he would have the support to send these tribe of evil away.

    Very laughable. Satan will be laughing at them. Jokers

    Ah! Ah! Judgement will be swift! Ah Naija! Why are you so rotten? Why?

      Why then did the cabal spend $millions treating Buhari overseas when so much money was spent on praying for him at home? So we have been burning our candle both ends on this man.

  • Adewale Atewogbade

    How is it possible for Nigerians to have descended to such a low intellectual level? Why would anyone even agree to become a so-called prayer warrior? So, are these “prayer warriors” Christians, Moslems or both? What kind of prayers are they supposed to be offering? Is this not a way of programming potential voters for the next election? Fellow Nigerians we really need to get a real life.

      Who healed Buhari, the prayer warriors or his English doctor? It seems we wasted that money for nothing in England.

  • realist

    Wonder shall never end in the camp of our integrity keeper president. Imagine, ordinarily when you hear people coming together to pray for Mr President, you think it is voluntary, out of the massive support for him, not knowing all is Abacha style. As one author put it, sycophants have been trying to outdo each other in the continuation of the culture of eye service.

  • Ikòtt.

    Hired Prayer warriors. Hustle.

  • Watch man

    These are bunch of prayer contractors and hirelings who parambulate with the garb of “christianns” or “servants of God”. They are nothing more than “gospel” merchants and pastorpreneurs. I wonder who they are praying to and therefafter come to collect money for their prayer commodities. Are these the type that Jesus Christ died for? Nigeria, a country of psychotic sycophants! Very disgraceful!

      Without receiving money do you think oduafraudians would be praying for Imam Buhari?

    I never believed this could be true, I never believed that APC really rent crowds to praise, pray, and write praises in various media for Buhari and Lair Mohammed. Each time we see the same omo odua names attacking anyone who points out the wrongdoings in Buhari’s administration. Sometimes you can count up to 300 praises from a horde of youruba touts, their leader calls herself Woman Leader1.
