Femi Gbajabiamila, chief of staff (COS) to the President, says no ordinary human being can carry the weight of Nigeria except with the help of God.
Gbajabiamila said President Tinubu needs the prayers of Nigerians to succeed.
He spoke on Wednesday after observing the Eid Al-Adha prayer in Lagos.
The former speaker of the House of Representatives said it is a “difficult time for Nigeria” but expressed optimism that the country would weather the storm.
“It is a difficult time for Nigeria but we will turn that corner. What the president needs from you today and tomorrow is your prayer,” the chief of staff said.
“The weight of Nigeria is not the weight any normal or ordinary human being can carry except with the help of Almighty Allah.
“It is evident therefore that Almighty Allah is with our president. He is carrying the weight for him.”
