The National Chairman of the African Democratic Congress (ADC), Chief Ralph Nwosu has called on Nigerians across religious divides to fast and pray for peace in the country.
He made this call during the flag off of a one week interreligious fasting and prayer organized by the party which took place at the ADC headquarters in Abuja on Thursday,
Chief Nwosu, while speaking, said that it is important to look out for one another, especially in these trying times.
He further blamed the leaders across federal and state levels for their ineptitude and stated that the prayer is targeted at them.
He said, “An organization that was able to gather 50 million of your population is an organization that must cultivate and not get into war with them; it is leadership failure that causes that. On that note, the prayer we are offering is to touch our leaders.
“There are a lot of things to criticize about the current administration both at the national and state levels. We have APC at the national level, APC and PDP at the various state levels. They are all doing very badly but coming on a daily basis to pinpoint all of these things will not help us anymore because we have spoken severally and nothing has happened.
“Therefore we have decided to go to God and we have called our clerics. At times, people say religion divides us but that is not true; religion is the channel to God and so it should bring us together. Religion preaches love.”
Chief Nwosu said that foreign investment is lagging because the country is not conducive for business to thrive. This he said would stop if ADC is voted into power in 2023.
He therefore urged Nigerians to come out en masse come 2023 and vote for the ADC, adding that a vote for the Youth-Oriented party would forestall peace and National development.
