Peter Obi urges christians to pray for Nigeria

The former governor of Anambra State and the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Mr. Peter Obi, has asked Christians to keep praying for the growth and development of the country.

Obi, who spoke when he paid a Christmas visit to an oil mogul, Dr. Michael Onuoha, at his Casa De Gracia country home at Umunakara community, Nwangele Local Government Area of Imo State, on Wednesday, urged Christians not to lose hope in the Nigerian project.

Describing the billionaire oil magnate as his family friend, Obi explained that his visit was to felicitate with the Onuoha family in the Yuletide season.

“This is a private visit. I am here to see my friend, High Chief (Dr.) Michael Onuoha ( Eriri Ego Ndi Igbo) and his family but I am surprised many people came out to receive me. I will visit again.

“As Christians, we will not lose hope. This season is very significant and we must keep praying for our country, Nigeria. This season signifies love. We must show love to people and to our dear country, Nigeria. To my dear brother, Chief (Sir) Michael Onuoha, your beautiful family and kinsmen, thank you for hosting me. I will visit again.”

Responding, the oil magnate thanked Obi for finding time to visit, saying that the ex governor’s humility had continued to distinguish him among other Nigerian leaders.

“Your excellency, we are happy to have you in our midst in this season. Though your visit was unannounced, but people came out and excited to receive you. That is to tell you that you are a leader of men. We will continue to trust in Nigeria and pray for the unity, advancement and stability of our country. Thank you for coming,” Onuoha said.
