Farmers in Maiduguri metropolis, Borno State, have resolved to hold special prayers over the delay in rainfall in the north-eastern state.
The farmers, mostly in the northern and central parts of the state affected by the development, said they want to collectively seek divine intervention.
One of the farmers, Ibrahim Ali, laments that they have been seeing cloudy skies as if it is going to rain, but after some time, there would be a strong wind pushing the clouds to another place.
Meanwhile, the Borno Emirate Council is also supporting the prayers. In a statement on Sunday, the Council mobilizes the public for the special prayers for rain slated for today at the Ramat Square, Maiduguri.
