Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun, has urged Nigerian Muslims to use the occasion of this year’s Eid El Kabir to pray to almighty Allah for peace and continued coexistence of the country.
He noted that the much needed development of the country can only be achieved in an atmosphere of peace, which is being threatened by the continued activities of insurgents.
In a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media, Mrs Olufunmilayo Wakama, Amosun said, “I want to enjoin our Muslim brothers and sisters to always pray for Nigeria .
“The much needed development can only be achieved and enjoyed when there is peace in the land,” he said.
Amosun also called on the Muslim faithful to continue to offer prayers as the country prepares for the 2015 general elections.
He congratulated the entire Muslim Umaah and wished them a happy celebration.
