Others joined in the prayers for quick recovery were the Secretary to the State Government, Mr Chiedu Ebie and the State Commissioner for Information, Mr Charles Aniagwu.
Mr John Paul, the Ika South Local Government Area chapter Chairman told newsmen that the prayer had become necessary to invite God into the matter.

He explained that as persons with disabilities, they believe that God can heal every sickness.
“We do not have anything to give to our amiable governor, the SSG and the Commissioner for Information, than to offer our prayers to God on their behalf.
