babangida_aliyu_chief_servenat 600The Northern States Governors Forum (NGSF) has called on Muslim faithful to use the holy month of Ramadan to pray to Almighty Allah for the quick resolution of the security challenges currently confronting the nation.
Chairman of the forum and Governor of Niger State, Dr. Mu’azu Babangida Aliyu made the call on Monday in a Ramadan message signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Danladi Ndayebo
Governor Aliyu enjoined Muslims to conduct themselves very well during the holy month in order to maximize the spiritual and physical benefits inherent in the month.
He identified good intention, prayers and firmness of purpose in the pursuit of good deeds as
conditions for reaping the benefits of the holy month.
The statement reminded Muslims that Ramadan is one of the five pillars of Islam and urged the faithful to accord it all the necessary attention by being proactive in decisions and actions that will ensure their full participation in the fast.
It also called on preachers to guard their utterances during the fasting period. It urged them to
concentrate on the true teachings of Islam rather than engage in mutual recrimination as was the case in the past.
“Muslim scholars should instead educate their audience of what is expected of Muslims during the holy month of Ramadan to earn Allah’s blessings,” the statement said.
