Former President, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, has revealed that constant prayer was the secret behind the achievements of his five-year administration.
Jonathan disclosed this on Friday at the third session of the tenth Synod of the Church of Nigeria, Anglican Communion which held in Abuja.
He also urged Nigerians to pray and support the federal government’s effort towards tackling the security challenges rocking the nation. Jonathan said:
“As a nation, from the beginning, we’ve been passing through a lot of challenges; the issues of kidnapping and armed robbery. Even to travel to very near cities such as Kaduna is becoming a nightmare to Nigerians. With constant prayers, the country will get through all its challenges.
“For me, who you all gave privilege of being President for five years, the little achievements we made were through your constant prayers. Whenever, I have opportunity, I thank you for the support you gave me.”
Jonathan said this even as the Primate of the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion), Most Rev. Nicholas Okoh, lamented the failure of those in government to punish evildoers within their fold and provide democracy dividends to the people.
