Pray for Nigeria, Buhari tells Christians

President Muhammadu Buhari
President Muhammadu Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari felicitates with Christians in Nigeria on the solemn occasion of the commencement of this year’s Lenten season.

“As they join their counterparts worldwide to emulate the worthy example of Jesus Christ who fasted 40 days at the beginning of His earthly ministry, the President urges Christian brothers and sisters to pray fervently for the country’s unity and progress,” presidential spokesperson, Femi Adesina, quoted Mr. Buhari as saying.

“He believes that Nigeria’s existence as one united country is a divine arrangement and nothing should be done to put it asunder.

“President Buhari enjoins all Nigerians to intensify love, brotherliness and concern for the less privileged members of their communities in order to strengthen the bond of togetherness.

“As Christians begin the period of increased prayers, piety, sacrifice and selfless services, the President wishes them and all Nigerians well.”

    Ahh! Abacha asked the same…..and the rest, as they say is history.

    • Sheikh Messi

      And history keeps repeating itself…

      • Danladi Mammani

        Let us pray one more time – you’re all invited to any of our mosques.

  • Eze_nsogbu

    Lip service from a blood sucking foolani Baal Demon. You want Christians to pray for the same Nigeria you’re destroying with your murderous foolani herdsmen foot soldiers…..Shameless foolani terrorist from Daura. Pig!

  • John Okolie

    You mean pray for Nigeria while you mess her up at every turn

  • Jon

    Restructure Nigeria to make it work. For example, you made yourself minister of oil that is in my backyard instead of making yourself minister of agriculture or coordinator of cattle colonies in Kano or Daura.

    GOD CHOSE YOU AND YOU ARE LEADING THE REAL AND PATRIOTIC NIGERIANS WITH THE BEST OF YOUR ABILITY.NOTHING HAPPENS WITHOUT THE APPROVAL OF GOD AND HE SAID HE WILL BLESS WHOM HE CHOOSES AND HE HAS CHOSEN YOU PRESIDENT MUHAMMAD BUHARI AND NO MAN BORN OF A WOMAN CAN REVERSE THAT. RIDE ON THE LION IN THE TRIBE OF NIGERIA.. SAI BUHARI RILL 2023

      God did not choose him. He gave us the free will to make a decision and we decided to choose a clueless man.
      Lets stop being sentimental which I think is the root cause of out mental laziness. We easily attribute everything to God allowing us not to think deep anymore. This change needs to begin from you and I
      A point of correction God will not do evil.

      • Anasieze Donatus

        THAT IS YOUR OPINION AND NOT THE OPINION OF 15 MILLION NIGERIANS

        • Whalerolex

          Please tell me the state of 98% of those 15 million Nigerians who cannot even produce toothpick.
          Please wake up and to involving God in this self made mess we found ourselves

          • Anasieze Donatus

            ANOTHER OF YOUR OPINION BECAUSE THE LAST TIME I CHECKED ALL STATES IN NIGERIA PRODUCE ONE THING OR THE OTHER.I CANONLY ADVISE YOU TO PURGE YOURSELF OF THIS GROVELLING HATRED

          • Whalerolex

            So you are 1 of those Nigerians still living on the fantasy. Why not tell me what they produce? Or do you think I am referring to Okorochas statue?

            Why am I even replying a Donatus? Lol

          • Anasieze Donatus

            90% of what you consume are produce in those state you believe you are better than

          • Whalerolex

            Where is my comment talked about someone better than others? Its people like you that attack Trump for calling Nigeria a shithole.
            Basically, it’s lost battle if 70% of Nigerians think like you.

          • Anasieze Donatus

            Please tell me the state of 98% of those 15 million Nigerians who cannot even produce toothpick.

          • Whalerolex

            No access to constant electricity, good roads and reliable medical services. You see that I am clear in my response. Please remember to follow suit

          • Anasieze Donatus

            I have no business with Trump or what he utters.i careless because i am a Nigeria and he is entitled to his opinion .The only people that lost the battle are people like you who wants overnight change and people who have refused to see that gradual change is taking place. i voted for change and not magic

          • Whalerolex

            Please share with me just 2 ongoing gradual changes? You need to read the story of Dubai and if possible visit Dubai to understand the meaning of change.

          • Anasieze Donatus

            Hahahahahahaha, You sound funny. Was Dubai built under 4 years? I have visited Dubai more than 17 times and that city and it surrounding was and has been under transformation since 1978 and that is the change you want Buhari to effect within 3 years. What did PMB Government meet that he would have built on. Major federal Roads are been constructed which is part of his infrastructural build up,the rail is under construction and the airways which vanished from the sky will soon start operation. It is either you believe that this is a gradual process or you wait for a magician. All outstanding workers salaries,contractors debts was paid by this government despite oil selling for as low as US$30 .Massive investments was thrown into agriculture and today made in Nigeria rice abound everywhere but we prefer made in Thailand , China and U.S.A.One of the criteria to build foreign investors confidence is your external ,it took OBJ 8 years to build the external Reserve to 42 Billion Dollars despite oil selling at 100 US$,It took GEJ 6 years to squander same but within 3 years PMB has built the foreign reserve to 42 Billion Dollars with oil selling below 50 US$ and you claim there is no change

          • Whalerolex

            Go and read about one Alhaji lateef Jakande. He was the governor of Lagos state for just 4 years so dont tell me any story.
            Clueless Buhari promised change buy what we see in Nigeria is more hardship. One thing has been similar to last government, e.g mere propaganda (figures as regards growth in the econocy), outrageous funds spent on Aso Rock, presidency aides, enormous corruption, no good roads, electricity and medical services. All you have said above are for people who have not learnt their lessons form these dumb politicians. Yes Dubai was not built in 4 years but remember i said you should read about it and you see how they plan and manage progress. Mind you they are still improving by the day.

            You cannot be blaming past govt or 16 years of PDP rule for your failure. Tell me, how come Aso Rock clinic still isnt a standard hospital after 3 years in office?

          • Anasieze Donatus

            I KNOW I CAN PICTURE THE PERSON I AM WASTING MY TIME WITH, YOU ARE COMPARING A STATE WITH A COUNTRY AND I AM SURE SHAGARI WAS THE PRESIDENT THEM ,WHAT CAN YOU ATTRIBUTE TO SHAGARI IN TERMS OF INFRASTRUCTURES.JAKANDE YOU MENTIONED WAS ALL ABLE TO BUILD MUCH ROOM SCHOOL AND 3 HOUSING ESTATES AND THAT IS YOUR YARDSTICK FOR DEVELOPMENT AND AMBODE IS YOUR YARDSTICK FOR FAILURE.DID I HEAR YOU SAY OUTRAGEOUS FUNDS SPENT OF PRESIDENTIAL AIDES PLEASE PUBLISH THE COST AND LET ME PUBLISH THE COST UNDER YOUR PDP AND LETS COMPARE AND CONTRACTS.OF YOU ARE SENT TO PRISON FOR 16 YEARS , THAT YEARS SPENY IS A WASTE IN YOUR LIFE. MY FRIEND STOP WASTING MY TIME ,GOVERNMENT IS CONTINUUM AND IF FOR 16 YEARS PDP HAD BUILT SOMETHING, THE NEXT GOVERNMENT WILL CONTINUE ON THAT ,THERE IS NOPDPROAD OR APC ROAD ,ALL DEVELOPMENT IS FOR THE BETTERMENT OF NIGERIAN PEOPLE. PMB REMAIN THE BEST AND HEAR THIS FROM YOUR HERO’S(:Buhari is like a spirit. We hired the best hands to investigate him from A to Z, but couldn’t link him to even a broom.
            GEJ),(I understand that Buhari gave out 22 Modular Refinery licenses. But
            this is the only one that is being actualised. When I was there, we gave
            out 18 licenses, zero was actualised…..” Olusegun Obasanjo)
            Finally,Within a year, 2016 – 2017, JAMB remitted N7.8Billion to the federation
            account, eclipsing the paltry total of N51Million remitted between 2010 –
            2015. THAT IS CHANGE

          • Whalerolex

            Mind you I support neither PDP nor APC and not here to sentimentally compare. I mentioned Jakande because he achieved under 4 years. All you are telling me are some figures your heard from Shehu Garba, Lai Mohammed, Femi Adeshina, Kemi Adeosun (confirmed liars with A*).

            How come your did not explain why we still do not have at least 1 standard hospital even for the presidency despite his recent wasteful medical tourism?

            I have no issues if you support cluess buhari as is your right.

          • Anasieze Donatus

            WAS ASO ROCK HOSPITAL BUILT IN 2015 ,ASO ROCK HOSPITAL WAS THERE AND OBJ WIFE DEAD IN SPAIN THE HOSPITAL WAS THERE AND YARDUA DIED IN SAUDI ARABIA, THE HOSPITAL WAS THERE AND GEJ WIFE WAS IN GERMANY HOSPITAL FOR 3 MONTHS AND SUDDENLY YOU WOKE FROM SLUMBER AND REMEMBERED ASO ROCK HOSPITAL AS IF THERE WAS NO BUDGETARY PROVISION FOR IT AND YOU EXPECT PMB START TAKE CHARGE OF PERSONALLY EQUIPPING THE HOSPITAL ,YOU ARE TOO JUNIOR TO UNDERSTAND ECONOMIC INDIES TO MEASURE DEVELOPMENT BECAUSE IF YOU DO, YOU WONT MENTION GOVERNMENT MEDIA AIDES BUT RATHER YOU WILL ALWAYS CHECK WITH NBS.YOU DO NOT NEED TO TELL ME YOUR POLITICAL AFFILIATION BECAUSE ACTION SPEAKS LOUDER THAN WORDS. PLEASE FIND ANOTHER TOPIC ,YOU ARE TO JUNIOR TO UNDERSTAND THE INDICES. BYE

          • Whalerolex

            So sorry mr senior.
            Its really not worth getting into conversation with someone like you really.
            I dont care if the Aso Rock clinic was built by Awolowo or how many people have enjoyed treatment abroad. Clueless Buhari promised to end medical tourism but within 2 years, he actually broke a record as regards medical tourism enjoyed by public office holders. If he is a serious man, I’ll expect him to ensure that at least a standard one is put in place but its obvious that some people have nothing upstairs.
            I have said it and will repeat, I will like to see positive changes as it affects the masses and not “on paper figures”.
            Your conscience will actually tell you the truth based on your situation

            I wish you all the best. If Nigerians like let them vote in another clueless citizen. Its not my problem is it?

  • AryLoyds

    Buhari has gone senile ! With all the muslim marabouts in Nigeria , why does Buhari want christians to help him turn Nigeria around ? Are fulani herdsmen christians ?
