Muslims in Niger State North central Nigeria, have been adviced on the need to use the Eid-al Adha period to pray for Allah’s intervention in curtailing a recurrence of insecurity in parts of the state.
The Senator representing Niger East Senatorial District, Mohammed Sani Musa, stated this while wishing the Muslim community in Nigeria a happy Eid celebration.
He said the increasing security threat in many communities across Niger East with attending loss of lives and wanton destruction of properties, including farmlands have made it imperative for people to pray to Allah for His intervention.
“All hands must be on deck in ensuring security of Niger East and the state in general, particularly by supporting the security agencies in discharging their responsibilities,” said. Senator Sani
Senator Sani Musa, Who equally admonished the people to observe all laid down protocols to curb the spread of Corona virus during Eid-el Kabir celebration, also emphasised the need for Muslims to imbibe the sacrificial lifestyle and obedience of Prophet Ibrahim (Pbuh) who was willing to sacrifice his only son as commanded by Allah.
He said like the Holy Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) interceded for believers while on earth, Muslims must make it an obligation to intercede for peace, unity, security and indeed prosperity of East Senatorial District, Niger state and Nigeria as a whole.
