Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, on Sunday urged Nigerians, especially political leaders, to stop blaming President Muhammadu Buhari for the country’s challenges.
Okowa spoke at the end of a seven-day convention of the Rock of Ages Christian Assembly International (RACAI) held in Benin, Edo State.
The convention had the theme: “Too Faithful to Fail.”
The governor said Nigerians should support the President instead of the undue criticism.
He urged Christians to constantly pray that the nation would surmount its numerous challenges.
The governor said Delta had several challenges shortly after he took over power, but they were surmounted with the help of prayers.
He said, “I refused to be disturbed or regret being in power at that difficult moment. Apart from plans made to tackle the problems, we embarked on prayer, especially the one we organise every May 29, since 2015.
“This is a way to say thank you God, we still believe and trust in you. The church must continue to pray for this country.
“If you do not pray and you continue to complain about the nation’s woes, you are not a Christian.
“When our nation is sick, we as a people are also sick. We should take the burden of the country as that of ourselves.”
The Pastor of RACAI, Mr. Charles Osazuwa, said it was time Nigerians took responsibility of proffering solutions to the nation’s numerous challenges.
