By Aanya Igomu, Abuja
Nigeria’s governing party, the All Progressives Congress, APC has called on Muslims in the country to pray for the country’s progress as they enter into the holy month of Ramadan.
In a press statement signed by the APC National Secretary, Caretaker and Extra-Ordinary Convention Planning Committee, Senator John Akpanudoedehe, the party urged Muslims to use the opportunity to draw closer to Almighty Allah.
“As the Holy month of Ramadan which marks the commencement of 30 days of fasting begins today, the All Progressives Congress enjoin Muslims to use the opportunity presented by the Holy month to come closer to the Almighty Allah.
“Ramadan, the 9th month of the Islamic calendar is considered one of the most blessed, if not the holiest month in Islam. The APC hereby urges muslims to pray for Nigeria’s shared prosperity, development and security. We should also pray for our leaders and remember to take care of the less-priviledged around us,” the statement read.
