The National Chairman of the Action Alliance (AA), Dr Adekunle Rufai Omoaje, has enjoined Muslims to sustain the lessons of Ramadan and pray for God’s intervention for wisdom for the incoming administration at all levels.
In a statement he signed and made available to newsmen in Kaduna on Friday, he felicitated the Muslim faithful on the Eid-el-Fitr celebration and enjoined them to sustain the spirit of sacrifice, perseverance, commitment to God’s activities and enhancement of prayers, among other good deeds associated with the month of Ramadan.
Omoaje also called on Muslims and other Nigerians to have faith and trust in God, believe in Nigeria’s greatness, and pray for a peaceful country.
The AA Chairman further called on the people to continue to pray and strive for the nation’s unity, peace, progress and development, insecurity, and other challenges.
He tasked wealthy individuals in society to extend their hands of love to the less privileged ones to improve their standard of living and to give them a sense of belonging.
He enjoined political, religious, traditional and community leaders to continue to preach peace and love among their followers, urging Nigerians to unite, embrace peace, tolerate one another irrespective of their differences and remain committed to constituted authorities for development to thrive and have a fair society.
He said that Ramadan taught Muslims to imbibe the spirit of patience, tolerance and love, which should be incorporated into the life of every believer.
“Throughout Ramadan, empathy, sympathy and love exist and prevail; now that Ramadan is coming to an end, we should not let it die. Ramadan is going, leaving fasting, mercy and love in our midst. Let us hold it and most importantly, lesson of devotion to the Almighty and humanity,” he added.
