Beloved in Christ,
Greetings and appreciation to you for your prayers for us in Nigeria. Thanks to God for granting us a peaceful election on Saturday and Sunday (March 28 & 29). We hope the result will be favorable to the suffering masses of Nigeria or to rightly put it, “We be the voice of Nigeria!”
