Nigerian First Lady, Remi Tinubu has resulted in prayer as arms in place of tactical strategies to eliminate the uprising insecurity in the country.
BrandNewsDay reports that Senator Oluremi said that it is prayer that would bring Nigeria out of the conundrum of insecurity, as the country is presently experiencing a new height of instability in the country.
The Nigerian First Lady made the statement via a tweet on the popular micro-blogging platform X (formerly Twitter) to express her gratitude for the safe return of Al-Kadriyar’s family from the kidnapers’s den.
In her words, “I rejoice with the Al-Kadriyar family, friends and Nigerians in general for the safe return of the Al-Kadriyar sisters.
”Prayer Works and I want to thank all Nigerians, especially mothers for praying for the safe return of the Al-kadriyar sisters. Let us however not relent in our prayers.
The wife of the president said: ”Let us intensify our prayers as it is prayers that would bring us out of this conundrum we find ourselves as a nation.
”I commend our security agencies for their efforts and urge them not to relent in combating insecurity in our Nation.
”God Bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
Reacting to the First Lady, a lot of Nigerians have expressed their displeasure over Mrs Tinubu’s stand for fashioning prayer as weaponry against insecurity instead of ammunition.
An X user, identified as Charles said, ”If you are honest enough you supposed to know that prayers can not do what our leaders supposed to do for us. Stop deceiving yourself.”
