Kaduna State Governor, Nasiru El-Rufai, has said that only divine intervention and fervent prayers can deliver Nigeria from its present socio-economic challenges.
El-Rufai made the remark when he received the leadership of the state chapter of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) and the Jamatu Nasril Islam (JNI), who paid him a courtesy visit in Kaduna.
He said the insecurity, dwindling economy, lack of jobs and general despair among the populace would require extraordinary efforts and God’s intervention to surmount.
In their separate remarks, the Kaduna State CAN chairman, Bishop George Dodo and the state JNI Secretary General, Malam Ibrahim Kufaina, said the visit was to congratulate the governor on his victory in the last governorship election and also pray for his success.
They advised the administration to focus on security, job creation and resuscitation of industries, in order to “make life meaningful to the people.”
The clerics also urged the government to ensure freedom of worship and protection of worship centres.
