The member representing Kontagora/Wushishi/Mashegu/Mariga Federal Constituency at the Federal House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Abdullahi Idris Garba (Jagaban Kontagora) has urge his fellow muslim constituents and Nigerians to pray to Almighty Allah to make positive interventions in the affairs of the country.
In a phone interview with the member and a correspondent of Gulmawuya, Rt. Hon. Abdullahi stated that there is need for us as citizens of Nigerians especially the Muslims during this great holy month of Ramadan, a month of mercy and abandoned blessing to include our beloved constituency and nation in our prayers by seeking Almighty Allah’s (SWT) positive intervention in our societal affairs especially in the accept of insecurity, economy, peace and unity of our great nation.
“We should continue to pray for Allah’s intervention as the entire country is suffering from security and economic crises. We should also be ready to play a key role in finding new directions toward fixing our country.
“As we approach the last ten (10) days of the holy month of Ramadan as we seek the night of Laylatul Qadr (The Night of Power), I enjoin all Muslims to continue to imbibe the essence of fasting which is for the privileged ones to deny themselves so as to experience the sense of hunger and deprivation that the less privileged in our society go through regularly. The privileged ones should therefore be their brothers’ and sisters’ keepers.
“Our society will be better if we all work to protect the needy and the weak ones among us. May Allah grants us the good faith to perform the fasting the way He has commanded and accept it as an act of ibadah.”, Abdullahi stated.
