Speaker of the House of Representatives Femi Gbajabiamila has urged Nigerians, especially Muslim faithful to use the Eid-el-Fitr to pray for the country to overcome its challenges.
This is contained in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Lanre Lasisi, on Tuesday in Abuja.
“Nigeria is confronted with challenges at the moment, this is why as citizens, we should pray to our creator for solutions even as leaders try their best to address the issues,” he said.
He urged Muslims to internalise the lessons learnt during the month of Ramadan for a better society.
He said the Islamic religion emphasised peace, which was why every Muslim must be peaceful in his conducts wherever he find himself.
