#SaveOurDemocracy: Fayose Joins Lawmakers Praying For God's Intervention
"The arm of flesh will fail you". This appears to be the perception of some leaders occupying political positions in Nigeria and they are seeking God's intervention.
Boma Godhead, a member of the House of Representatives, started this prayer for democracy on Tuesday after gaining access into the National Assembly nearly became as difficult as the head of a camel going through the 'needle eye'. This was because men of the Department of State Security, DSS baricaded the entrance of the National Assembly complex.
After shoving and pushing characterised the morning of a day that an emergency meeting of the leadership of the Senate was supposed to hold, the Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose also thinks Nigerians should now look beyond the law to God to save the nation's democracy.
He says he warned the nation, but no one listened.
In a post on his Twitter page, the governor, who will be handing over to a governor elected under the All Progressives Congress (APC), described the incident at the National Assembly as tyranny.
"Shameful display of tyranny at the NASS.
"At this point, we can only pray to God to save democracy in our country from the hands of these tyrants. But I warned!
"I warned those who brought Buhari in 2015 and I kept warning even after he was elected. #SaveOurDemocracy

A lot has happened in a day already that it seems Nigerians have spent two days in one.
While the palaver was on at the National Assembly, the head of the Department of State Service (DSS), Lawal Daura, got a reward for the act of his men - he was fired by the Acting President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo.
Things appear to have fallen apart at the National Assembly since lawmakers of the APC left the party last week and aligned with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The Senate President has also left the APC for the PDP days after the Senate embarked on a recess.
