Over 300 women in Kwara State on Tuesday held a special prayer session seeking divine intervention over the travails of Senate President Bukola Saraki at the hands of the Nigeria Police Force.
Recall that Saraki has been invited by the Police over alleged connection with suspected masterminds of the Offa bank robbery.
Concise News gathered that the women recited verses from the holy Qur’an and prayed God to vindicate Saraki whom they described as their benefactor.
Speaking after the prayers, leader of the group, Ramat Oganija said, “We were and still shocked by the development because over the years we have known our leader, Dr Bukola Saraki as a compassionate and kind-hearted man who could not hurt a fly. Our leader abhors violence in all its ramifications.
“He had helped many women with money to start their own businesses and facilitated the training of young women’s in vocational skills and kit them upon graduation.
“We want to use this forum to make it clear to the police hierarchy that Saraki is our leader and a law-abiding citizen whose passion is to improve the lots of the common man, especially the women folk.
“We shall continue to support our leader with prayers as we have no doubt in our minds that this fresh plot against him like the ones before it shall fail woefully.”
