The Nigerian Tribune has reported that almost all governors in the northern part of the country are presently in Saudi Arabia to seek divine intervention to the persistent security challenges facing the region.
According to a source who spoke with the Nigerian Tribune on condition of anonymity, governors who could not travel equally sent their deputies for the same mission. The source said while some of the governors travelled last week, others left the country on Wednesday, on the premise that they would observe Eid-el-Kabir in the holy land.
The source said the governors were of the belief that only divine intervention could solve the problem, since the security forces could not tame activities of the gunmen in the states: “Our governors resolved to seek for prayers during the sallah in Saudi Arabia, believing that whatever they begged Allah for during the festival would receive God’s blessing and answers.”
Apparently, the governors are disturbed that attacks by gunmen on innocent citizens in the states continued despite security presence.
May God answer their prayers. Amen!
