As Muslims commenced the month of Ramadan, notable Nigerians have enjoined them to pray for the peace and tranquillity of the country.
On his part, National Leader of the Congress for Progressive Change, CPC, General Muhammadu Buhari called on Muslims to pray for Nigeria to chart a meaningful way forward.
While he wished the entire Muslim Ummah, a spiritually rewarding month of Ramadan, Buhari in a statement by CPC’s Publicity Secretary, Mr. Rotimi Fashakin, said “the Nigerian state is in peril as a result of self-inflicted wounds.
“And we must pray fervently to Allah to grant us the peace to be able to chart a meaningful way forward.”
Also, the Chief Imam of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, Central Mosque, Sheikh Adam Idoko, enjoined Muslims to use the Ramadan period to pray for peace and unity.
Idoko told the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, in Nsukka, Enugu State, yesterday, that with peace and unity, there would be cordial co-existence among the religious groups which would help the country to move forward.
“With peaceful co-existence and respect for one another among the religious bodies, Nigeria will become the best country in the world.
