Pray For God To Secure Nigeria – Minister Of Defence, Badaru

The Minister of Defence, Abubakar Badaru, has called on Nigerians not to stop praying for the country’s security to succeed and defeat insecurity.

Badaru, who called for prayer for the present administration at his office in Abuja when he received a delegation from his State, Jigawa led by the governor, Malam Umar Namadi, argued that “one could only but ask for prayers to succeed” considering the complex nature of security challenges and other aspects of national development.

The minister, however, said they were determined to put an end to insecurity in the country but added that the task before them is enormous.

Furthermore, Badaru urged Nigerians to support them in all ramifications including their prayers in order to entrench peace and stability in the country.

On his part, the Jigawa State governor, Namadi, who led traditional rulers, religious leaders, the business community and public office holders from the state, said that the visit was to congratulate the minister and assure him of their support at all times.

He stated, “It is not only to say congratulations, but also to pray for you. We know how you succeed as the governor of our state, we also pray for you to achieve same or even more in this new task as the Minister of Defence.”

Namadi reminded the minister that Nigerians have high expectations that he would priotise and deal with insecurity in the country, adding “once you can do this, it covers every aspect of the nation”.

“We are lucky that we are peaceful in Jigawa, but that does not mean that we don’t need your assistance, we also need your assistance as you help other states,” he added.

Recall that some parts of the country have been a danger zone and home to insurgents since early 2013.
