The former AnambraState Governor said that why those in politics should try and lead by examplewhile conducting the affairs of the state, those secluded in places of prayershould continue to pray for divine intervention in the affairs of the country.

Obi, who said he had visited the Abbey severally for prayers, contemplation and sharing of ideas with the members of the community, thanked them for matching prayerful life with engagement in all sorts of work such as farming and poultry aimed at feeding themselves.

He said their gesture was enough lesson for those that think about Christianity in terms of living beggarly lives to have a re-think.
