From Ado Abubakar Musa, Jos
Nigerians have been urged to engage in constant prayers for peace and unity of the country and never allow anything to disunite them.
The call was made yesterday by the Imam of Jama’atu Izalatil Bid’a Wa’ikamatis Sunnah ( JIBWIS), Saeed Abdullahi, in his sermon during Ed-el-kabir prayer held in Jos.
While calling for the peace and unity of the country, Abdullahi also called on all and sundry to fear Allah and help the needy.
“ People should imbibe the spirit of fairness in their day to day life. They should also fear Allah in all they do.
“Muslims should inculcate the culture of praying to their leaders at all levels and shun bad whishes because leaders are like drivers of vehicle.
“ If you pray bad to leaders is as equal as praying bad for the entire country, “ he said.
He, however, task parents to give proper training to their children and not allow them to be roaming around.
Aliyu Sange, who is the National Secretary of the group, called on Federal Government to be fair to the country’s security personnel who often sacrifice their lives for the peace of the country.
