Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Fayemi has expressed that there is need for more prayers to combat the security challenges affecting the country.
Fayemi, who is also the chairman of Nigerian Governors’ Forum (NGF), spoke on Tuesday when he led some of his colleagues to Zamfara state.
The visit came after the release of 279 students kidnapped from Government Girls Secondary School, Jangebe.
Speaking on the abduction, Fayemi stated that he believes that the country will get rid of the menace of school abductions.
He said prayers will assist in “reshaping the irrationality” of using violence to solve problems in the country.
“I believe that Nigeria will be rid of this menace. We need more prayers, that is why I was also trying to encourage Mr Governor (referring to Matawalle) and our leaders to go for prayers first before we have this session,” he said.
“Because, yes it is work and prayer, but prayers will assist us in really reshaping the irrationality that has come upon us, where violence is seen as the solution to whatever problem that we have and violence never solves any problem.”
