“The country’s situation; the security challenges, the economy, and the ongoing strike by organised labour.

“We all know that a lot of reforms are being formulated to take the nation to the path of greatness, so we need to pray for the president and his lieutenants for God’s guidance and intervention in the ongoing nationwide strike embarked upon by the organized labour as well as the turn around of the nation’s economy.”
