He emphasized that the President would continue to instill hope in Nigerians by implementing policies that prioritize the well-being of the people. Gbajabiamila further expressed that the President would require the prayers of Nigerians to successfully carry out various initiatives aimed at realizing the vision of Nigeria’s founding fathers.

“As the President returns to Abuja and travels throughout Nigeria, he will need your prayers. The challenges ahead are significant, but with the prayers and support of all Nigerians, the President will undoubtedly overcome them,” he added.
