Pray More For Leah Sharibu’s Release – Presidency



Nigerians should intensify prayers for the release of Leah Sharibu, the abducted Dapchi Secondary School student held back on account of her refusal to denounce her Christian faith.

Speaking to newsmen in Lagos, Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina said that efforts by the Muhammadu Buhari administration to release Sharibu and other hostages held by Boko Haram insurgents were classified security matters that cannot be divulged to the public.

Adesina spoke on the sidelines of the Easter Concert organized by the Apostolic Faith Church at the church’s National Headquarters in Anthony Village, Lagos.

“We believe that Leah Sharibu will come back one day, a lot is being done, and you know you cannot begin to proclaim sensitive things like that on the pages of the newspaper,” Adesina said.

“We should not relent in our prayers, keep hope alive and I am assuring you that the Federal Government is doing everything possible to secure the release of Leah Sharibu”.

Affirming that problems presently engulfing the country would soon be somersaulted in the same way as Jesus overcame death, he said:

“Whatever the problems that besiege this country whether killings, economic, political or social problems can be overcome. We will overcome all the problems facing the country; it is time for us to be encouraged, resonate and determined that God still rules in the affairs of men, and Nigeria.”

The District Superintendent of Apostolic Faith Church, West and Central Africa District, WECA, Rev. Adebayo Adeniran, in his speech charged Nigerians to put the interest of the country above selfish considerations an corrupt tendencies.

“We need to look at the significance of Easter in Nigeria. We are not to live selfish lives, we should be able to invest in our country and all that we have is for a purpose.

“Jesus made the provision for the cleansing of corruption, God is averse to corruption.”
