Archbishop of Canterbury prays for Leah Sharibu

The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to urgently secure the release of Leah Sharibu, reports ITRealms.

Leah, ITRealms recalls, is the 14-year old Dapchi Christian school girl who is still held captive by Boko Haram for refusing to convert to Islam.

Speaking during a courtesy visit to President Buhari in London, Archbishop Welby enjoined him to do everything humanly possible to secure Leah’s release.

He stressed the need for any country or society to flourish by entrenching excellent education.

“So it was good to speak with the President about how education helps tackle poverty. I highlighted the vital role that churches in England play not just in educating a million children, but in providing them with values, identity and purpose,” he said.

Welby further urged Christians to join him in prayer, especially with those suffering from the herder-farmer conflict, the Boko Haram insurgency, and all those mourning the loss of loved ones.

“It’s so important that we pray for the peace and progress of Nigeria – and particularly for the liberating peace of Jesus to be with all those held in captivity,” he said.
