Governor Aminu Masari of Katsina State has insisted that the President-elect, Bola Tinubu, needs more prayers from Nigerians to enable his administration to succeed.
Masari stated this during a special breaking of fast and prayer session organised on Wednesday at the Government House, Katsina.
According to him, Tinubu used to organise such prayer sessions every year during Ramadan.
Masari said, “This year’s session is specially organised to thank the Almighty God for our success during the recent general elections in the country.
“He [Tinubu] is now to be the new president, hence he needs more prayers. Thank God people have understood that after electing leaders, prayers must be the next.”
Tinubu is set to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari as Nigeria’s next President in May this year.
The former Lagos State Governor won the Feb. 25 Presidential election and was issued his Certificate of Return by the INEC.
Tinubu, who contested the Presidential election under the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC, defeated strong contenders, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar and his Labour Party, LP, counterpart, Peter Obi.
