Before the Appeal Court’s ruling on the Nasarawa State governorship election, supporters of the Peoples Democratic Party, both Muslim and Christian, initiated a seven-day collective prayer for their candidate, Dr. David Ombugadu.
Following the Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal’s decision to nullify Governor Abdullahi Sule’s victory and declare Ombugadu the winner, these supporters began the prayer session to seek divine protection for the appeal court judges and ensure fairness in the judgment.
Suleiman Abdullahi, a leader of the prayer group, conveyed optimism about justice prevailing in the state during an interview in Lafia, the state capital.
He said, “Allah is the creator of the universe. He neither discriminates nor fail in his promises. So, the moves to change the wishes of the people against the overwhelming mandate given to those they want will not stand.
“We genuinely gave our mandate to the PDP candidate, Dr David Ombugadu, to ensure a positive change in Nasarawa State. We will continue to pray to Allah because we know that he will listen to our supplications and do his will in Nasarawa State.”
Rev. Emmanuel Bako, another member involved, emphasized their commitment to persistently seeking divine intervention through prayers until justice prevails in the state.
He said, “God Almighty is always ahead of every principality. The will of God shall prevail and shame those people insisting on taking the mandate given to David Ombugadu in Nasarawa State.
“The axe of God is waiting for anyone challenging his power and will in this case. It is said in the Book of Isaiah 58:11 that ‘The Lord will guide his people, satisfy their desire and make their bones strong. They shall be like a watered garden, like spring water, whose work does not fail.’”
Other participants discussing the prayer session affirmed their decision to engage in prayers from their individual homes as a preventive measure against potential violence instigated by political factions within the state.
