Ahead of the forthcoming general election, the Osun State chapter of the All Progressives Congress has directed its members to observe a three-day fast and prayer.
According to Punch Newspapers, the acting state chairman of the party, Tajudeen Lawal, gave the directive in a statement in Osogbo on Tuesday.
Lawal hinted that his party does not joke with the potency of fasting and prayer as victory can only be guaranteed by the All-knowing God by communicating with Him through fasting and prayer.
He directed that the fasting and prayer session should commence on Wednesday through Friday which is the eve of the conduct of the presidential and National Assembly elections.
He stated that the prayer point of the APC members should be that “God Almighty should finish His work which He had started on the presidential candidate of the party, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and all the party’s national and state assemblies’ candidates.”
He also called on the APC members to pray for crisis-free elections and subsequent victory of all the party’s candidates, adding that their Permanent Voter Cards should be kept safely to enable them to participate in the elections.
