As Muslims all over the world celebrate eid el-Fitr, marking the end of 2021 Ramadan fasting, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Kano State, Abdulsalam Abdulkarim Zaura, popularly known as A. A. Zaura, has called for nationwide prayers against the menace of insecurity in the country.
Mr Zauda made the call in his Sallah message signed by his media aide, Al-Amin Ciroma, on Saturday in Kano.
The chieftain, who is a former governorship aspirant in Kano, advised Nigerians to “avoid acts capable of upsetting the peaceful co-existence of our dear fatherland”.
The popular Kano politician said that Nigeria needs prayers from all, in order to make the country a better place to live.
He urged the Muslim Ummah to use the opportunity of the tranquility and serenity they have gathered during the month’s devotional prayers to promote the good things that we deserve in Nigeria.
Mr Zaura also appealed to Kano residents to be more devotional in their prayers, “so as to promote religious tolerance, self-sacrifice, and patriotism”.
While congratulating President Muhammadu Buhari, the Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, and the entire people of the state on the successful completion of this year’s fasting, Mr Zaura prayed for God’s acceptance of our good deeds.
Mr. Zaura, who recently decamped from his former party GPN to APC, reiterated his commitment to ensuring his new party APC excels in all its mandate, not only in Kano State but in the country as a whole.
“I want to congratulate all Muslim Ummah in Nigeria and the world at large for the successful completion of this year’s Ramadan.
“May Allah Ta’ala in his infinite mercies grant us all the blessings in the devotional period of Ramadan.
“I also wish to specifically congratulate the President and Commander-In-Chief of the Armed forces of the federal republic of Nigeria – President Muhammadu Buhari, the Kano State Governor – Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, and the entire Kano State people to embrace peaceful-coexistence as a tool for this year’s fasting,” Mr Zaura said.
