People from all walks of Life thronged the Michael Okpara Square venue of an all night prayers organized by Uma Ukpai Evangelistic Association in conjunction with the Christian Association of Nigeria,CAN, on February 8.
Apparently to give credence to the aphorism, which says,”It ends well,for those who start with prayers”, the organisers sought fervent supplications for God’s intervention in the volatile build-up to the general elections.
Chairman,Local Organising Committee,LOC,All Night Prayers for Nigeria,Mr. Beloved-Dan Anike revealed that Nigeria being a great nation, has decided to call upon the Almighty God to hear the prayers of his wards especially now the general elections are around the corner.
However,the crowd at the event was electrified when the Peoples Democratic Party,PDP,governorship candidate,Mr.Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi and his running mate,Mrs. Cecilia Ezeillo alighted on the stage.
The momentum of the prayers gathered steam following the presence of Ugwuanyi as the people collectively and individually prayed for their different intentions. From the conspicuous mien on faces of worshippers at the event, they are hoping that the pronounced presence of political actors in Enugu State at the prayer event will translate to Godly governance during the next administration.
