A socio-political organization, Osun Positive Force (OPF) has organized interdenominational prayer session for President Muhammadu Buhari, his Vice, Professor Yemi Osinbajo and Osun State Governor, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola for their successes in office.

A statement issued and signed by the Personal Assistant to the founder of the group, Mr. Tesleem Adedapo Olaiya, said that the prayer session became imperative so that they can meet the yearnings of Nigerians at their respective levels.

Clerics from three religious groups, Christianity, Islam and Traditionalist present to offer prayers to Almighty God to grant the leaders good health, grace, wisdom, understanding and zeal to pilot the affairs of the country.

They also prayed that God should grant the nation peace and security to be able to move forward and develop.

The founder of the group,  Bashiru Ajibola who is also former Commissioner for Special Duties and Regional Integration in Osun State, noted that no one is in doubt that the experience of President Muhammadu Buhari as former Head of State, Chairman, Petroleum Trust Fund will surely make a difference from the past maladministration style of the PDP.

He assured that Nigerians are ready to support them so as to achieve the desired and expected change Nigerians are yearning for.

Ajibola commended his boss for the commitment and determination towards ensuring that his administration impacted on the lives of the people of the state.

According to him, “our boss and teacher (Aregbesola) has touched many lives; fought and won many battles, conquered in all fronts. There is no gainsaying that the federal change we are experiencing now started from Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola who placed the welfare of humanity first as a role model worthy of emulation.

He also challenged lawmakers in the state to emulate the good work of Aregbesola and be a good and positive ambassador of their respective constituencies and not let down the people who elected them for positive change.

He urged the clerics to continue their prayers for the people and government of Osun State adding that this is a critical time when the state needs God intervention in its affairs.

Ajibola also appealed to the striking workers in the state to rescind their decision and return to their duty posts in the interest of the state assuring that delay in the payment of salaries and allowances would soon be a thing of the past.
