Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state was picture kneeling down to lead a prayer session at the government house where he had gathered clerics from all parts of the state.
The governor, famous for his outspoken nature and his intense attacks on the Buhari led-administration, was joined in a special meeting by the deputy governor of the state, Dr Kolapo Olusola; the first lady, Mrs Feyisetan Fayose and wife of the deputy governor, Mrs Janet Olusola.
He was also joined by other notable people including Secretary to the State Government, Dr (Mrs) Modupe Alade; Chief of Staff to the governor, Barrister Dipo Anisulowo and Special Adviser to the governor on political matters, Alhaji Ademola Bello.
The governor who had in the past predicted that tougher times await the country in future resorted to prayer with other dignitaries to ask God to intervene and save Nigeria from the doom that is about to befall her.
While the country is already scrabbling through tough economic times with several economic challenges yet to be thrashed and is said to be at the verge of witnessing harsher challenges in just a few weeks to come, the prayer said by the governor wasn’t just about Nigeria’s economy. His prayer was all encompassing.
