Nasarawa Governorship Election: Protesting Women, Muslim, Christian Clerics Resort To Fasting/Prayers For Tribunal On Justice For Ombugadu


Several prayers sessions are being held in Lafia by women protesters, Muslim and Christian faithful to seek intercession of God Almighty in the case on which the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP is seeking to reclaim its mandate in an alleged governorship election fraud perpetrated by the All Progressives Congress APC in the state.


SeeOur correspondent reported that a total of 7 praywer sessions have so far been held, three each by the Muslims and Christians and a joint 3 day fasting which ended with an inter-faith prayer led by clerics of both faiths in Lafia.

The Women who had earlier embarked on a 21 day Protests, said the inter religious fasting and prayer among the Muslims and Christians was designed by enthusiast to crown their activities which was anchored on the injustice that characterized the 2023 governorship elections in Nasarawa State.

“Our decision to embark on these series of fervent prayers and fasting was to collectively seek God’s divine intervention against undue influence at the Tribunal”.


“We don’t want to use our religion as barrier, rather we want to use it as stepping stone towards undue manipulation, achieve common good, religious harmony, fight against injustice” Hajiya Salamatu Mohammed said.

“The essence of the interfaith is to break barriers, break the walls and build bridges against discrimination, religious segregation, deprivation, cheating, preaching against one another faith. We come together to pray after several weeks of protest against injustice that characterize the last governorship election in Nasarawa State”.

Women Leader Stella Oboshi said “we are not against anybody but our prayer is to put an end to the overrunning injustice that is going on in our state”

Leading the inter-faith prayers last Saturday in Lafia, Mallam Haruna Tanimu Mu’azu and Bishop Ayuba Evuladu after their separate exultations, led the congregation in praise, worship and Qur’anic recitations seeking divine interventions so that God Almighty will complete His work at the tribunal to secure victory for the people, which was denied them by “election riggers on March 18th, 2023”.

The Clerics urged supporters and the general public to keep hope alive as God never fails and since both Muslims and Christians have come together to pray as they always do in the state, their sight is focused on victory and unity.

The prayer warriors however decried the intrusion by strange preachers from outside the state who by their preaching, cast aspersion and sent dangerous and divisive messages capable of creating tension prior to the elections in a state that is usually in harmony with all religions including traditional worshippers without qualms.

They also called on leaders to stop the art of projecting sentiments of religion and ethnicity during elections but to showcase either their achievements and or plans for uplifting the masses, guarantying development and protecting lives and property.

The clerics and other speakers at the occasion further urged all supporters and people of the State to continue with their intercessory prayers even after the event, in their respective private spaces, homes and offices especially in all their daily prayers.

The event was attended by supporters and party faithful from across the 13 local government areas of Nasarawa State among other sympathisers.
