According to them, without peace in the country, democracy will be nothing just as its dividend will elude the nation; but with a continuous prayer to God, all things are possible.
The trio urged politicians irrespective of their political party affiliations to shun violence and allow the will of God to be done and not theirs.
“There must be no bloodshed, no confusion or commotion in the land; Nigeria must be great during and after the elections.
“We pray that whatever the enemy has planned for the country, God should not allow it come to pass. There should be no bloodshed in the country; the peace of God should reign,” they declared.
The clerics stated that the preoccupation of the people in this election season is to pray to God and ask Him to choose the right leaders for the nation, leaders who will have the interest of the masses at heart.
They maintained that all that Nigeria needs in this period is prayer, adding that with prayer, Nigeria of everybody’s dream will come to reality.
‘”Nigeria is the only country we have; that is the reason we all need to pray to God, irrespective of our religion, tribe, and political party affiliations, because prayer is the master key that can open any door no matter who locked it,” they said.
During the joint prayer session, the clergymen prayed against the plans of people who might be plotting to cause crisis and bloodshed in the country and asked God to expose them before their plots could come to reality.
