Yesterday, Senate President David Mark, urged Muslims in the country to pray for the survival of Nigeria as the new Ramadan season begins.
In a press statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Paul Mumeh, Mark enjoined Muslims to make the continued survival of Nigeria a focal point of their prayers throughout the season.
The senator urged the Muslim faithful in Nigeria to pray for the nation and her people in order to overcome the trying times.
“More than any time else, the nation requires your support and prayers to triumph over forces of evil facing the nation. Our security operatives have been overstretched. Our people are daily being killed needlessly. Our only hope is in the divine intervention of the Almighty creator to salvage the situation. It has, therefore, become imperative that you commit yourselves to praying for the peace, unity and survival of Nigeria in this holy month of Ramadan,” he said.
Mark also called for religious tolerance between and among religious groups pointing out that in spite of the challenges of insecurity, the unity of Nigeria should not be compromised.
