Wife of the Lagos State Governor, Mrs Abimbola Fashola, has said Nigeria requires divine intervention for peace and unity to return to the country. She therefore called on women in the state to pray for peace, unity, progress and the enthronement of God-fearing leaders in Nigeria.

Speaking at the 2013 National Women’s Prayer Summit, NWPS, organised by Awesome Treasure Foundation, ATF, a non-government organisation, in Lagos, Fashola noted that it was very important that Nigerians prayed for God’s intervention in the management of the country’s affairs.

“We are putting Nigeria into the hands of the Lord because He is the only one that can deliver us.

“This is the only country we can call our own. We are asking that God should heal our land. We want God fearing politicians; those that are going to lead the nation aright.”

The governor’s wife also urged Nigerians, regardless of status, to always see themselves as leaders responsible and accountable in whatever they did to their families.

“Just as we are growing individually so is the state. We need to keep praying, keep talking, saying positive things about our country and we need to work hard not just as elected or appointed leaders.”
