“The aim of this prayer is to call on our ancestors to support, to guide and to help us through this moment of the election -before, during and after the election. If we all listen very well to things that are happening in the country, it doesn’t look like we have the peace that we were enjoying before this period. That is why we are calling on our ancestors to intervene and calm all nerves and to make sure that they maintain and sustain the peace we have been enjoying all this while,” Mama Ku Agbi II said.
