Northern Governors felicite with Muslim on Eld-El-Ftr, calls for prayers

The Northern Governors Forum has felicitated with the Muslim ummah as they mark this year’s Eid-el-ftr, calling for more prayers for the unity, peace and progress of the nation.

Chairman of the Forum and Governor of Plateau State, Simon Bako Lalong in a message said although Nigeria is going through troubling times, hope must not be lost because hard times do not last forever.

He urged the Muslim Ummah to continue to demonstrate faith in the prayers which were offered especially during the Ramadan fast, saying that God did not make a mistake by creating Nigeria with all its diversities and will therefore not allow evil to prevail or destroy the country.

Lalong said the current security situation demands more action from both the Government and citizens who must work together to isolate bad elements that are desperate to make Nigeria an unstable entity.

Lalong also urged Nigerians, particularly political and religious leaders to avoid rhetoric that further inflames passions and further divides the nation along religious, ethnic and parochial sentiments.

He wished Nigerians a happy festive period praying that it will be spent in peace and love.
