PDP Declares One-Week Fasting And Prayer For Atiku’s Victory At Tribunal
The PDP will not stop until the result of the 2023 presidential election is overturned in court.
By Omotayo Olutekunbi
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) seems to be seeking supernatural intervention rather than depending only on the legal competence of its attorneys to win before the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal (PEPT).
This might explain why the PDP National Chapel ordered a seven-day fast and prayer for its candidate in the recently ended election, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, to prevail in court versus the winner of the February 25 election, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
The prayers are slated to begin on Thursday, May 18, and finish on Wednesday, May 24, with an ‘overcomer’s open-air gratitude celebration’ the day after to round off the spiritual journey.
The activities will occur at the PDP National Secretariat, Wadata Plaza, Wuse Zone 5, Abuja, and begin at noon every day, according to The Punch.
It should be noted that the PEPT set May 18 to continue the pre-hearing of Atiku and the PDP’s case against the President-elect and his party.
The case was pre-heard on the fourth day of hearings before the tribunal after counseling for Atiku and the PDP, Chris Uche (SAN), expressed interest in the subject.
Meanwhile, Boni Haruna, Chairman of the PDP Christian Religious Body, Presidential Campaign Council, ordered a seven-day fast.
The prayer was tagged, ‘At the Supreme Court of Heaven with Chief Justice of Universe,’ the announcer observed, “denounce the Independent National Electoral Commission’s president-select and rescue and recover PDP for Nigeria”.
“The text will be taken from Romans 8: 33, Psalms 84: 10-11, Proverbs 24: 25-26; 9: 7 – 8.“
