Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon Yakubu Dogara joined a group of Northern Christian Women to pray for the speedy recovery of President Muhammadu Buhari.

The prayer session took place in the Speaker’s office when the Christian women leaders from the 19 northern states and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), paid him a courtesy visit at the National Assembly.

Dogara expressed faith that God will answer the prayer and restore the president to full health, saying, “Because we have prayed, God in heaven will answer us. In fact, He is not answering us, He is honouring His word.”

While addressing the women, he urged them to live in fulfillment of the demands of Christ Jesus by showing love to everyone irrespective of faith and tribe, adding that love begets peace and only in peace can development be achieved and faith practices without fear or restrictions.

“Love without restrictions. Love your neigbours in fulfillment of Christ’s command. Do not restrict your love to only Christians, also show love to Muslims and people of other faith”, he added.

Earlier, the delegation of women commended the Speaker for his passion for alleviating the sufferings of internally displaced persons (IDPs) and resettlement of the displaced.

Leader of the team, Mrs Leah Solomon Lucy, also used the occasion of the courtesy call to express concern that northern Christian women have not been getting appointments in the present government and to appeal that they should be included in upcoming appointments.

She also lamented that insurgency has left many of their members widows and childless, noting that though terrorism has been defeated greatly in the north, people are still being killed.

They also prayed for the speedy recovery of President Muhammadu Buhari and wished the acting president, Prof Yemi Osinbajo, a belated happy birthday.
