He emphasized that no one will seek an elective post with the aim to fail in service delivery but leaders are overwhelmed by various challenges and pressures of office that need prayers to overcome the odds.

The Governor, therefore, stressed the need for prayers by Nigerians irrespective of imaginary differences to assist leaders in overcoming various obstacles and economic challenges threatening the unity, peace and development of the country.
