Ex-U.S. mayor joins call for 30-day prayer for Nigeria

Former Mayor of the city of Oakland, California, United States (U.S.), Elihu Harris has joined the call for a global prayer in the face of the current ethnic and social tension in Nigeria.

Harris, who is throwing his influence behind U.S-based Nigerian peace activist and social entrepreneur, Prince Ayo Manuel Ajisebutu, convener of the month-long prayer session, said Nigeria has the opportunity, now to get things right and lead the future of other African countries.

He added that anything short of peace for Nigeria portends danger for the collective vision of Africa among other continents of the world.

 

Harris, who has never hidden his love for Nigeria and its people, said: “The entire world is waiting for Nigeria to wake up and take its rightful place in the community of developed nations and ignite hope in all Africans both in Africa and outside Africa.”He pleaded with the leadership of the country to walk the path of peace and unity, and change the negative narratives that have tainted the country for so long.

Scheduled to hold from July 1 to July 30, 2021 at 12:00pm each day, the call for global prayer for Nigeria is the second in the series this year – the first being the aftermath of the Lekki shootings on October 20, 2020, which featured U.S. Congresswoman Barbara Lee.

Ajisebutu, who is concerned about the spate of shootings by unknown gunmen, ethnic unrest, herders/farmers crises, kidnappings, and calls for dissolution of Nigeria, especially by Southwest, Southeast and South-South ethnic nationalities, believes in the power of prayers to calm the growing tension in the country.
