Blaming President Muhammadu Buhari for Nigeria’s challenges will not solve the country's problems and Nigerians, especially political leaders, need to stop this habit.

This is according to the Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa who spoke in Benin at the end of a seven-day convention of the Rock of Ages Christian Assembly International (RACAI).

The convention had the theme: “Too Faithful to Fail”.

The governor said that Nigerians should support the President instead of the undue criticism.

He urged Christians to constantly pray that the nation would surmount its numerous challenges.

According to him, Delta had many challenges shortly after he took over power, but the challenges were surmounted with the help of prayers.

“I refused to be disturbed or regret being in power at that difficult moment. Apart from plans made to tackle the problems, we embarked on prayer, especially the one we organise every May 29, since 2015.

“This is a way to say thank you God, we still believe and trust in you. The church must continue to pray for this country.

“If you do not pray and you continue to complain about the nation’s woes, you are not a Christian.

“When our nation is sick, we as a people are also sick. We should take the burden of the country as that of ourselves,” he urged.
