Religious bodies on solidarity rally to Aso Villa
Northern Christian and Muslim clerics have led a procession to the Presidential Villa, Abuja to declare their support for the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration in its continuous support for the war against insurgency.
The groups under the aegis of the Northern Inter-Faith and Religious Organizations also urged religious institutions to intensify prayers for the successes of the troops fighting the Boko Haram sect in the North-East.
The group led by Bishop Edward Chanami also said that the worst days of insurgency was over and also called on Nigerians, irrespective of their religion to be part of the prayers session.
The Senior Special Assistant (Media and Publicity) to President Buhari, Malam Shehu who received the clerics, said what Nigeria needed was peace for its citizens to go about their businesses.
