The Edo State Council of Traditional Rulers  has scheduled a prayer and fasting programme for January 2  to seek God’s intervention in the ongoing crisis in the state, the  News Agency of Nigeria  reports.

NAN reports  that Governor  Godwin Obaseki  has been locked in a battle with  his predecessor Oshiomhole, leading to the fictionalisation  of the APC  in the state.

A    statement on Monday by   the Otaru of Auchi, Alhaji Aliru, Momoh  urged  Muslim ummah in his kingdom to continue to pray for peace in the state.

According to the statement by his spokesman Alhaji Usman Abudah,  the monarch     while briefing members of Otaru-in-Council  on the recent meeting of the  council presided over by the Oba of Benin, Oba Ewuare II,  also urged them to take part in the programme.

The Otaru called for  support  for the  royal fathers “as prayers are never too much and nobody knows whose prayers the Almighty will accept.”
