The Edo State Council of Traditional Rulers has scheduled a prayer and fasting programme for January 2 to seek God’s intervention in the ongoing crisis in the state, the News Agency of Nigeria reports.
NAN reports that Governor Godwin Obaseki has been locked in a battle with his predecessor Oshiomhole, leading to the fictionalisation of the APC in the state.
A statement on Monday by the Otaru of Auchi, Alhaji Aliru, Momoh urged Muslim ummah in his kingdom to continue to pray for peace in the state.
According to the statement by his spokesman Alhaji Usman Abudah, the monarch while briefing members of Otaru-in-Council on the recent meeting of the council presided over by the Oba of Benin, Oba Ewuare II, also urged them to take part in the programme.
The Otaru called for support for the royal fathers “as prayers are never too much and nobody knows whose prayers the Almighty will accept.”
