Speaking shortly after the recitations of several portions from the Holy Quran, by members of the congregation ,the Chief Missioner of NADWAT, Ustaz Aliyu Olayinka said the society decided to organize the prayer as part its contributions towards ensuring peace and stability in the nation.
He cautioned political leaders and their supporters against do-or-die politics in the interest of peace and stability of Nigeria.
The Chief Missioner reminded politicians that it is only God who can give and take power from whom He likes.
The cleric however, advised politicians to see political office as a means to serve God and humanity rather than means of acquiring wealth illegally.
