President of the Republic of Malawi, Dr. Joyce Banda has today left the country on a private trip to attend prayers in Nigeria.

Speaking to journalists upon her departure at Kamuzu International Airport in Lilongwe, Banda said this was one of her private trips that she has been taking every year for the past five years.

“Some of you may be aware that I go for prayers in Nigeria. This year I also decided to take a 3- day holiday for the prayers,” she said.

President Banda further appealed to Malawians to live peacefully in this festive season as a God fearing nation.

“As we are about to celebrate 50 years of independence, we should finish the last 50 years with a positive way of thinking and start the next coming 50 years with a special way of thinking in terms of development,” she explained.

She said God is with the country, citing the newly released Ernest and Young 2013 Report which predicts that Malawi is one of the fastest growing economies in Africa.

“As we are about to end year 2013, we should forget all our differences and start year 2014 on a new chapter. The Ernst and Young report is just a prediction, it is up to us as a nation to make it a reality,” she added.

The President is expected to return to Malawi on New Year’s Eve, Tuesday, December 31, 2013.
