Nigerians have been asked to use the Eid- el-Fitr celebration to seek God’s divine intervention to end insurgency and other challenges facing the country.
A Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Alhaji Abubakar Kawu Baraje made the call in his Sallah message to Nigerians.
Baraje particularly enjoined Muslims not to be too joyous, but use the occasion for sober reflection to appreciate Allah for making them see the end of Ramadan fast.
Baraje said: “We thank Allah for counting us among those that will see the end of this year’s Ramadan fast, we beseech Allah to accept our fasting as an act of Ibadah.
“The current happenings in Nigeria today requires our collective prayers, the evil atrocities of the Boko Haram sect is not only uncalled for, preposterous, un Islamic, inhuman, puerile but against divine will.
“We need to stand together in unison as Muslims and Christians to condemn this dastardly act, pray fervently and intensify efforts to preach peace and harmony in the society”, he said
The APC chieftain urged Nigerians to be vigilant and report any suspicious characters and movements to the law enforcement agencies, calling for community policing to ensure security of lives and property.
Baraje assured that the APC- led Federal Government was determined to
restore peace to Nigeria. He prayed God to shower His mercies on the country and the people and called for fervent prayers to tackle the numerous challenges
confronting the nation.
Also in his message, a former member of the House of Representatives, Hon. Mashood Mustapha, appealed to Muslims to allow the lessons, messages and teachings of Ramadan to continue to reflect in their daily endeavours.
Mustapha urged Nigerian leaders to be sensitive to the yearnings and aspirations of the people and embark on programmes that will impact positively on their lives.
