Delta Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa has urged Nigerians, especially political leaders, to stop blaming President Muhammadu Buhari for the countryâ€™s challenges.
Okowa spoke in Benin at the end of a seven-day convention of the Rock of Ages Christian Assembly International (RACAI).
The convention had the theme: â€œToo Faithful to Failâ€.
The governor said that Nigerians should support the President instead of the undue criticism.
He urged Christians to constantly pray that the nation would surmount its numerous challenges.
According to him, Delta had many challenges shortly after he took over power, but the challenges were surmounted with the help of prayers.
â€œI refused to be disturbed or regret being in power at that difficult moment. Apart from plans made to tackle the problems, we embarked on prayer, especially the one we organise every May 29, since 2015.
â€œThis is a way to say thank you God, we still believe and trust in you. The church must continue to pray for this country.
â€œIf you do not pray and you continue to complain about the nationâ€™s woes, you are not a Christian.
â€œWhen our nation is sick, we as a people are also sick. We should take the burden of the country as that of ourselves,â€ he urged.
