Nigeria needs prayers – Ex-Senate President Bukola Saraki

Ex-Senate President Bukola Saraki has urged Muslims to pray to Almighty Allah to make positive interventions in the affairs of Nigeria.

In a statement Friday night by his spokesman Office, Yusuph Olaniyonu, Saraki said between the last Ramadan and now, a series of events had happened that shook the world.

The former Kwara State Governor listed the continued existence of cases of COVID-19 which had in the past affected several aspects of religious rites. He congratulated Muslims for the successful commencement of 2022 fasting in the holy month of Ramadan.

Saraki told citizens that they have many reasons to be grateful to Allah, particularly for preserving everyone till this moment. We are happy that except in a few places around the world, this year, the pandemic has reduced tremendously.

“It is important that Muslims in Nigeria dedicate more time to pray for our dear country in this holy month.

“We should pray for Allah’s intervention as the entire country is suffering from security and economic crises. We should also be ready to play a key role in finding new directions toward fixing our country.

Saraki enjoined all Muslims to imbibe the essence of fasting which is for the privileged ones so as to experience the sense of hunger and deprivation that the less privileged in our society go through regularly.
