President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday disclosed that God arranged Nigeria to be one, indivisible country.
In a goodwill message to Christians as they mark the ‘Ash Wednesday’ which marks the beginning of 40 days of fasting, he called on adherents of the Christian faith to pray for the unity of the country.
The President, in a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, enjoined Nigerians to intensify love, brotherliness and concern for the less privileged members of their communities in order to strengthen the bond of togetherness.
“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.
According to the statement, Buhari wished Christians and all Nigerians well as the period of increased prayers, piety, sacrifice and selfless services begins.
