President Goodluck Jonathan in Abuja on Sunday urged Nigerians not to relent but to continue to pray for the peace, stability and unity of Nigeria.
Jonathan made the call at the enthronement of the Most Rev. Oche Job, as the Methodist Archbishop of Abuja Diocese.
Job succeeded Most Rev. Chimaroke Iweha, who retired in November 2013.
Represented by Prof. Chinedu Nebo, the Minister of Power, Jonathan noted that the situation in the country would have gone worse were it not for payers.
“We should continue to serve God in our nation. We need to continue to cry out (pray) to him; if we have not been doing that it will be much worse.
“Even though things don’t seem to be the best, it will have been worse if we are not crying out and telling people not to do the wrong thing,’’ he said.
