The All Progressives Congress (APC) Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) on Wednesday in Abuja, called on Nigerians to continue praying for the country’s progress and its leadership at all levels.
National Secretary of the CECPC, Sen. John Akpanudoedehe, made the call when he led members of the committee on a condolence visit to its Chairman, Governor Mai Mala Buni who lost his maternal grandmother.
“The CECPC came to pay a condolence visit on the chairman because of the demise of his maternal grandmother, Hajiya Fatima Mallum Yuram.
“We came to pray with him and to ask Allah to grant the remains of the late Hajiya who happened to live for 102 years a peaceful rest.
“Permit me to also use this opportunity to call on Nigerians to pray for the progress of our dear country and our leaders at all levels.” Akpanudoedehe said.
He said both Christian and Muslim prayers were offered for the repose of the deceased, noting that Buni`s gentle and respectful disposition could be traced to his ancestral root which he said was blessed.
Akpanudoedehe prayed that Allah would grant Buni who is also the Governor of Yobe and his family the fortitude to bear the great lost.
Other CECPC members on the delegation included: Sen. Ken Nnamani, Prof. Tahir Mamman and Barr. Ismaeel Ahmed.
