An unknown group is organising prayers for the suspended Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, Dr Betta Edu, to be recalled.
CONVERSEER learned from one of the flyers made available to our newsroom that the prayer session will be held on Monday (22 Jan. 2024) at Eleven-Eleven (Millennium Park), Calabar, Cross River State capital from 7:00am to 10:00am.
The flyer which was titled, “Let’s Meet & Pray 4 Betta”, had the theme: “God Is Better For Betta”.
Our Reporter further learned that the prayer session will be accompanied by a solidarity rally.
“This is a Clarion call for all who care about Cross River and Dr Betta Edu,” a message accompanying the flyer read in part.
CONVERSEER earlier reported that Edu was suspended on 8 January 2024, by President Bola Tinubu on the allegation that she sent N585 million to a private account from the ministry’s coffer.
Meanwhile, reports have it that the Presidency is shopping for her replacement.
