“The nation’s current challenges could be surmountable through fervent prayers and patriotic belief in the oneness of Nigeria.
The several activities of Ramadan; daily Tefsirs, Tahjuds, Ramadan Lectures and Laylatul Quadri programmes amongst others should effect the desired change in our daily dealings with ourselves as a people.
Let’s place humanity first, banditry, kidnapping, crimes and other vices have no place in any religion. Hence, this year’s Eid-el-Fitri celebration should be a period to reflect on the deep spiritual significance of humanity, above any form of challenges,” he counseled
