Okowa, Gbagi urge prayers to end insecurity
Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, yesterday urged Nigerians to have full recourse to God for solution to the prevailing insecurity in the country.
Okowa made the call in his message to the Muslim faithful across the country on the occasion of Eid-el-Fitr celebration.
In the message conveyed in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Olisa Ifeajika in Asaba, he said Muslims and Christians should intensify prayers to complement the federal and state governments efforts at ending insecurity in the country.
He added that Nigerians should also pray for the peace of the nation and to avert a possible third wave of COVID-19 pandemic.
He urged the Muslim faithful to extend the spiritual benefits of Ramadan, which were love, peace and justice to their daily living “as through this, they will be contributing to the development of the nation”.
Okowa noted that this year’s Eid-el-Fitr celebration came at a time when the country was plagued with severe security challenges, which call for fervent prayers.
He charged all Muslim faithful and Nigerians to use the celebration for sober reflection and supplication for peace, unity and progress of the nation.
