Senate President Ahmad Lawan has said prayers are needed to overcome the challenges Nigeria and its people are currently facing.
Lawan made this known on Wednesday when he received a delegation of the Christian Legislators’ Fellowship of the National Assembly.
In a statement by his Special Adviser (Media) Ola Awoniyi, the Senate President said security agencies need constant prayer to perform well.
He said: “Given the situation we are in today, the various challenges that Nigeria and its people face, we even need to pray more.
“Today, we face serious security challenges. Where we have security agencies, which are mandated to ensure that we are secured and protected, if nothing, we should pray for them that they are able to perform well.
“It is not only in empowering them with weapons; the power of God is beyond weapons.
“I’m sure that all people of faith will continue to pray for our security agencies to protect us.”
Lawan added that leaders have to do whatever they can to be truthful, transparent and accountable to their people.
