One of the leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has, in the spirit of Ramadan, urged Nigerians not to stop praying for the country, assuring that leaders with vision and vigour will soon be voted into office.
Tinubu, who stated this yesterday in a statement from his media office, insisted that Nigeria is not a broken case but only by wise voting for the right people can the current state of the nation be redeemed.
The former Lagos State governor, who is now recuperating from a recent successful surgery abroad, sent this message to all Nigerians as Muslims across the country mark the end of Ramadan.
The APC stalwart further urged Nigerians to work for the good of the nation, saying that “very soon, leaders with vision, vigour and vibrant capacity will be voted into office to lead Nigeria onto the right path. Nigeria is not a broken case. It is redeemable and only the people can make this change happen by voting right and wisely”.
The statement reads in part: “Nigerians of all faiths have been urged to pray fervently that the predictions of doom, hardship, political instability and religious intolerance will not come to fruition.
While wishing all Muslims Eid Mubarak and happy Sallah celebrations, Tinubu urged that Muslims must not stop praying and fasting for Nigeria because Ramadan was over, warning that danger lies ahead for Nigeria.
“As our country continues its search for equilibrium — politically, economically and in terms of religious harmony — men of God and their followers must never stop to offer prayers.
“The Ramadan period was another opportunity for Muslims to pay penitence, but most importantly pray for the peace and progress of Nigeria. Nigeria needs prayers but also good leaders.”
