Senator Yerima said “I am here to inform you, your Eminence that I am part of those aspiring to lead this country and to seek for your prayers and support because prayer in our various religious organization especially from people like you is one area God can direct Nigerians towards good leadership and this is the second time am visiting you but today is to seek for your prayers and by his grace I will still come back for the third time for more prayers and blessings”.

The Inter – religious Council that his Eminence and Sultan are chairing is doing a great job, I believe we need more than that, we need ministry that will take charge of Christians and Muslims matters also look after your guidelines so that there will be Inter religious peace in this country and that is part of our agenda by God’s grace come 2023” Yerima added.

Speaking, His Eminence John Cardinal Onaiyekan said human being try their best but only God knows the future and those that will take the lead in Nigeria with abundant men and women that will play and lead according to the will of God.

Bishop Onaiyekan said “We who are ordained ministers are assigned a role which the prophets had in our old testaments, because prophets in the old are not kings, but the kingdom of Israel which is led by God will not work if the kings did not listen to the prophets and you have taken the right step by remembering people like us to seek for our support and prayers, I will keep praying for you and to seek for God’s interventions in your movement”.

He therefore called on other political leaders and those aspiring to be leaders to emulate such move by allowing God to take charge in most of their dealings so as to lead the nation aright and get the blessings of God.

Senator Yerima was accompanied during the visit by members of his Campaign Council.
