The Vice Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Mr Peter Obi has urged Nigerian Catholics who began their 40 days Lenten observance with Ash Wednesday adorning black attires in remembrance of those killed in various violence in the country to let the mood reflect in their hearts as they supplicate to God this season.
Obi who also wore black clothes made the call after the early morning Ash Wednesday mass in Abuja. He urged the faithful, who all wore black in obedience to the directive of the Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria, that this subtle protest should reflect in their hearts.
Obi, a papal knight of the Catholic Church and former Governor of Anambra state, said that the prayers should go to all those going through hardship in the country as a result of poor and inadequate security.
He also wants the supplications to cover the teeming unemployed youths in the country whose future is being jeopardized by the situation in the land.
