Jos Mus­lims pray for Buhari, La­long

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Lami Sadiq, Jos

Mus­lims in Plateau State yes­ter­day of­fered spe­cial prayers for Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari and Gov­er­nor Si­mon Bako La­long with an ap­peal to all Mus­lims to uphold the lessons of Ra­madan.

The Chief Imam of Jos Cen­tral Mosque, Sheik Lawal Adam, who led the spe­cial prayer shortly af­ter the Eid-el- Fitri ser­mon, prayed Almighty Al­lah to be­stow wis­dom and sound health on Pres­i­dent Buhari and Gov­er­nor La­long to lead the coun­try and state to greater heights, adding, “Prayer is the only way out of our coun­try’s cur­rent sit­u­a­tion in the coun­try.”

The Chief Imam stressed that Mus­lims must at all times demon­strate fear of God and avoid un­nec­es­sary dis­agree­ments ca­pa­ble of dis­unit­ing them in or­der to have peace and devel­op­ment in the so­ci­ety.

“Mus­lim par­ents must pri­ori­tise the ed­u­ca­tion of their chil­dren and im­pact moral prin­ci­ple in them. We must also im­bibe the spirit of neigh­bourli­ness ir­re­spec­tive of re­li­gious or eth­nic back­ground,” he said.

The state Com­mis­sioner for In­for­ma­tion, Malam Ah­mad Nazif, who rep­re­sented Gov­er­nor La­long, called on Mus­lim youths to re­spect con­sti­tuted author­i­ties and el­ders in their var­i­ous com­mu­ni­ties.
