Cheru­bim & Seraphim Church to Buhari: Nige­ria needs you, don’t over­stretch your­self

Weekly Trust - - News - Is­mail Mu­dashir

The Cheru­bim and Seraphim Uni­fi­ca­tion Church of Nige­ria yes­ter­day urged Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari not to over­stretch him­self, say­ing Nige­ria needs him to com­plete the good work he has started.

The church made the call dur­ing a cour­tesy call to the pres­i­dent at the Pres­i­den­tial Villa, Abuja. Leader of the del­e­ga­tion, His Most Em­i­nence, Prophet Solomon Adeg­boyega Alao said the pres­i­dent has per­formed well in the fight against cor­rup­tion, and in­sur­gency.

“To ap­pre­ci­ate the works and feats per­formed thus far and to as­sure His Ex­cel­lency of our con­tin­ued prayer and sup­port, es­pe­cially on his anti-cor­rup­tion stance. We an­tic­i­pate that cor­rup­tion which is killing Nige­ria may fight back, but His Ex­cel­lency will pre­vail be­cause the ma­jor­ity of Nige­ri­ans are with you,” he said.

The church asked the Pres­i­dent to use his good of­fice to en­sure the re­lease of Leah Sharibu, be­ing held cap­tive by Boko Haram for re­fus­ing to re­nounce her faith.

Re­spond­ing, the pres­i­dent com­mended the group for up­hold­ing the ad­min­is­tra­tion and the gov­ern­ment in pray­ers, par­tic­u­larly as the gen­eral elec­tions ap­proach.
