The governor said the state is in need of serious prayers and it will be good if the church has its presence across Kaduna.

Adeboye, who said he has known the governor for many years, described El-Rufai as a tender-hearted man.
‘’We know that you have a problem that only God can solve. The problem is far beyond the abilities of any human being. We have known each other for years. I know the kind of person you are. I know you are tender hearted, I know how you definitely must be feeling, particularly when the kidnappings are going on. When they begin to kidnap school children, I know how you must be feeling,’’ he said.
