The Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Alh Idris Wase, has urged Muslim Ummah to use the Holy Month of Ramadan to pray for the peace, security and development of Nigeria.
In a congratulatory message to mark the commencement of this year’s Ramadan, the Deputy Speaker implored Muslims to follow and apply the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad (S,A,W), in their relationship with both Muslim and non-Muslim neigbours.
He stressed that “We should remember to cater for the less-privileged in our midst, stay humble and abstain from all bad deeds.
As Ramadan begins, I wish to felicitate with all Muslim for witnessing yet another season of spiritual significance. I enjoin you to use the sacred holy month of Ramadan to pray for our dear nation against the current spate of killings, kidnappings, banditry and other security challenges bedevilling most parts of the country.”
The Deputy Speaker also urged citizens to support the security agencies in their effort to deal with the situation, reporting to all relevant authorities agents of destruction who use disguise as ethnic or religious champions to achieve their diabolic, selfish and heinous agenda by exploiting perceived differences.
