“The world has passed through unprecedented changes in health, economy and security within the year 2020.

“Inequality in governance has rocked our nation and exposed them to the anger of the youths protesting against government.’’

She enjoined them to always pray in times of challenges, saying that prayer was the most needful at all times.

“We have witnessed challenges in different directions and magnitude as a nation in this year 2020; COVID-19 pandemic brought with it hardships and difficulties that are still with us.

“God is always able and has promised to deliver us from such challenges,’’ Mrs Ibezim added.
