The sum of N200 million has been earmarked by the Adamawa State Government to engage prayer warriors to seek divine intervention toward ending the state’s lingering security challenges.
Alhaji Abdurahman Jimeta, the governor’s Chief of Staff, disclosed this in a media chat aired on the Adamawa State Television in Yola.
He said that the money was sourced from the state and Local Governments joint account.
His words: “We have earmarked N200 million for prayers to seek for Allah’s intervention in tackling the Boko Haram menace and other insecurity challenges threatening the stability of the state’’.
He explained further that part of that money, which would be spent as security votes, would go into assisting local vigilance teams and security operatives.
On agriculture, he explained that the state government had ordered fertilisers worth over N3 billion for the 2015 farming season.
He called for massive support toward the success of government efforts for a peaceful and stable Adamawa, adding that not much could be achieved in an atmosphere of chaos.
