See Photos Of Peace Corps Members Praying Days After President Buhari Refused To Sign Their Bill Into Law

Last week, President Buhari withheld assent to the bill seeking to establish the Peace Corps.

The President informed the lawmakers of his decision in a letter read during plenary by the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, citing security concerns and financial burden of funding the organisation by the government as his reasons for rejecting the bill.

Members of the Osun State Peace Corps who are still hopeful that a miracle can happen held an intercessory prayer session tagged, ‘God can still do it’ where they fervently prayed for the president to change his mind.
