Archbishop of Canterbury visits and prays for Nigeria

The leader of the Anglican Church worldwide and Archbishop of Canterbury, Rt. Rev. Justin Welby, met with President Jonathan behind closed doors yesterday.

The Bishop, who spoke with newsmen after the meeting, said he came to pray with President Jonathan and condole him over recent incidents, especially the Jos bombings and the killings by Boko Haram.

According to him, the world is united in prayers for Nigeria and Nigerians.
He said: “In the meeting, the President talked about the need of a solution that will reach all Nigerians. Not just security, but the economy, spiritual and every part of the human life.

“The bombing in Jos was deeply disheartening because I know Jos very well. I came to pray with His Excellency and express our condolence for the losses.

“God is faithful. In one of the letters that Paul wrote to the church, he talked about the sufferings they were going through being known throughout the world and that is true here, because the suffering in Nigeria is known throughout the world.

“People throughout the world pray for the country.”
