The National Inter-faith Thanksgiving Project for the Survival of President Muhammadu Buhari and Stability of Nigeria is mobilising 5000 Nigerians for thanksgiving in appreciation of God’s restoration of the president’s health.
According to News Agency Nigeria (NAN), the Chairman Project Planning Committee, Mr. Okeme Emmanuel told newsmen in Abuja on Wednesday that the thanksgiving was to appreciate God for Nigeria’s stability, qualification for 2018 World Cup and for exiting recession.
The National thanksgiving session would be held at the Eagles Square in Abuja on December 12.
“No fewer than 5000 Nigerians, both young and old, men and women, Christians and Muslims, traditional rulers, government functionaries shall be moblised from across the 36 states and FCT”.
“More so, the international community, diplomatic corps, local and international media will participate in this historic event”.
“For a critical year like 2017, in which God has shown Nigeria so much mercies and kindness, as a corporate global citizen, it becomes most imperative for us to rise in one voice and thank God.
“In spite of our religious, cultural and ethnic differences, it has become urgent for us to thank God for sparing the life of our president, saving the country from systemic collapse, qualifying for World Cup without defeat and for pulling our economy out of recession’’, he added.
The national thanksgiving would be hosted by the National Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN), Initiative for the Promotion of Peace and Unity in Nigeria (PPUN) and the Peace Corps of Nigeria.
Furthermore, as the nation approached the 2019 presidential election, Emmanuel highlighted that it would be a wise approach to use the platform to seek God’s guidance and directions.
