The President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, has urged Muslims on Ramadan to remember Nigeria in their prayers as the country seeks to overcome the challenges it is facing.

He urged them to stress the messages of peace, love and national unity as the fasting period begins across the Islamic world.

He also urged them to use the period for sober reflection, self-discipline and sacrifice.

This was disclosed in a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media, Ola Awoniyi, titled ‘Senate President urges peace, national unity and prayers for Nigeria during Ramadan.’

“I urge us to remember our dear country in our prayers as we seek to overcome the challenges we are facing as a nation.

“This is in the realisation that Allah is the Almighty, kind and greater than all human problems.

“I enjoin us to stress the importance of peace, love, generosity and unity in our teachings during this sacred period.

“We should also not let down our guards in the observance of COVID-19 non-pharmaceutical protocols in our spiritual and other activities during the Holy Month,” Lawan said.

The Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs had yesterday announced that Ramadan will start in the country on Tuesday, April 13.
