President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has appealed to Nigerians to pray for peace and stability in the country.

Tinubu made the appeal Tuesday, March 12, 2024, when he joined the Muslim faithful in the State House mosque for the Ramadan Tafsir (explanation of the Holy Qur’an).

Declaring open the annual Tafsir, President Tinubu advised the Muslim faithful to demonstrate kindness to one another and their neighbours while also supporting the less-privileged in society.

Chief Ajuri Ngelale, Presidential Spokesman, stated the President also said: “We thank Almighty Allah for sparing us to see another holy month of Ramadan.

“We thank Allah for sparing us through the elections and giving us the opportunity to be Nigerians.”

The Nigerian leader noted: “Yes, things are tough, but Allah has ordained us to make sacrifices, to discipline ourselves, help others, and be kind to ourselves.

”May Almighty God, that gave us this opportunity, strengthen our resolve; help us change our country, and extend our love to our neighbours.”

He further stated: ‘We face challenges of kidnapping, banditry, and others. May Allah show mercy on all of us, the dead, and accept our good deeds.

”May Almighty Allah give us strength and good life to see the month of Ramadan through and to continue in good faith to worship him. I advise all of us to continue to pray for our country.”

President Tinubu informed the Ulamas that God has given them the wisdom, knowledge, and the heart to teach others.

He equally emphasised the importance of teaching forgiveness, patience, and endurance to the faithful, as well as sharing their blessings with others.

”It is in our hearts to make sacrifices and share whatever little we have with our brothers and sisters.

“Be kind and humble enough. The sacrifice that this period teaches us is enough.

”May Almighty Allah grant us the privilege and the strength; not the strength of hunger but the strength of character and attitude to love our country and make Nigeria great. As-Salaam-Alaikum,” the President prayed.
