More than 1000 Bishops and Pastors from the Pentecostal fold on Sunday stormed the Ecumenical Center, Abuja to reconcile President Goodluck Jonathan and former President Olusegun Obasanjo, ahead of the 2015 general elections in the country, reports Vanguard.
The reconciliation prayer meeting however could not hold, as President Goodluck Jonathan was absent, as he was away in Germany on a private visit. Former President Obasanjo, was also absent and he was said to have been represented by his pastor.
There were divergent views on the invitation sent to the two leaders as some of the pastors claimed both President Jonathan and former President Obasanjo were formerly invited, some other members said that the President was not given formal invitation to attend but that he was aware of the meeting.
Some of the clerics told Vanguard that President Jonathan was represented at the prayer meeting by Venerable Obioma Onwuzurumba but that the members had wanted the two personalities to be present so that the reconciliation could be effective.
The Ministers of God however had intensive prayers against the recent outbreak of the deadly Ebola Virus Disease (EVD), the insurgency in the North East occasioned by the Boko Haram sect and the abduction of Chibok girls in Borno State.
