Anglican Bishop seeks prayers for Tinubu

The Bishop of Ijumu Anglican Diocese Church of Nigeria, Right Reverend Paul Ojo, has called for prayers for President Bola Ahmed Tinubu so that he can fulfill his campaign promises for the nation.

The cleric who made the call while speaking at the 1st session of the 5th Synod of the Diocese, held at Holy Trinity Anglican Church, Ikoyi-Ijumu, with the theme, ‘The Knowledge of the Holy’, urged President Bola Tinubu not to be distracted by those who attack him indirectly and address security challenges bedevlling the country.

Bishop Ojo said, “The New President should be focused, he is not looking for money or fame. I think he just wants to serve. There will be bantering and backstabbing but he should be focused”

While urging Nigerians to pray for Tinubu to select competent professionals in his cabinet in order to rebuild the country, the cleric said, “If he does not have anything in mind will not vie for the Position of President. Where we are currently now in this country, we have to pray for President Bola Tinubu. Whether you like it or not, that’s our new President and we pray that God will help him.”

The Bishop expressed optimism that the President will replicate his feat as Lagos Governor, adding that the religious leaders should call on the their congregation to seek the knowledge of God as it is the only tool for success.

The Synod is a platform for spiritual rejuvenation, a review of the State of the nation as well as the growth of the Church.
