Governor Ben Ayade of Cross River State has redeemed N10 million he pledged to the Council of Imams for praying for his electoral victory both at the polling booths in the 2015 election and at the Supreme Court in December 2016.
The Chairman of the Council of Imams and Scholars in the state, Major Kabiru Ibrahim Sa’ad who spoke with journalists in Calabar, said, “The governor has now redeemed the pledge he made to our council for the intensive prayers we all said which enabled him to come out victorious in the gubernatorial election of 2015 and at the Supreme Court, and we are very grateful to him.”
He said the Council of Imams and Scholars was founded in the state two years ago to unite the Muslim Ummah without bias to sect affiliation, adding that the council would continue to pray for Ayade and for President Muhammadu Buhari.
