Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State says fervent prayers by Nigerians remain the only solution to the country’s woes.
The governor made the remark in Sokoto on Monday at an event to celebrate Eid el-Maulud, the birth of Prophet Muhammad, organised by the state’s chapter of the Islamic Shababul Qadiriya Movement.
Represented by the state’s Commissioner for Religious Affairs, Alhaji Mani Katami, the governor said, “prayers should be intensified by all Nigerians, irrespective of religious, political or ethnic differences.
“With prayers, Nigeria will soon overcome her challenges.
“We should also continue to be our brothers’ keepers, be patriotic, love one another and accord top priority to the indivisibility, as well as the unity of the nation.”
He also urged parents to continue to enroll their children to acquire both religious and western education.
Tambuwal solicited the support of Nigerians to the ongoing anti-corruption fight by President Muhammadu Buhari, saying that corruption was abhorred by both Islam and Christianity.
