A frontline aspirant for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Senatorial seat in Nasarawa South, Dr Mike Omeri OFR, has urged Muslim faithfuls in Nassarawa South, the state and Nigeria at large to sustain the lessons learnt during Ramadan and to allow same to continue to radiate in their consciousness for a better Nigeria.
Omeri stated that the period of fasting teaches Muslims to be more pious, disciplined and self control, while shielding their hearts from greed and immorality.
The former director General of the National Orientation Agency (NOA) in a statement obtained by TMSnews on Monday, to commemorate the end of Ramadan, called for tolerance and understanding of Nigerians to move the country forward.
He further urged Muslims to use the Eid period to reflect and pray for a free and fair elections come 2023.
He also asked for sustainable harmonious relationship among Nigerians to enhance the much needed stability of the nation, saying through this, the development of the country is assured.
Omeri held that the month of Ramadan presented Muslim faithful with an opportunity to reignite their faith by not engaging in any act that can take away their rewards from Allah after the Holy month.
He said, “We as Muslims must ensure that the lessons we have all learnt during our fasting period must be written in gold in our subconsciousness, we must all strive never to go back to our sinful ways. The good deeds during Ramadan must continue.
“It is on record how fervently we have always prayed for a better society during the Holy month.
“Now that Ramadan is over, we should endeavour to continue to pray for the good of the land, and always learn to speak positively to the development of Nigeria.
“May Allah accept all our Ibadah this Ramadan, lessons on peaceful coexistence, self control and purity have been learnt, May Allah make it easy for us to follow it through.” The Obowu of Keana said.
