A former governor of Sokoto State, Aliyu Wamakko, has called on Nigerians to seek divine intervention for solution to the current economic recession facing the country.
Mr. Wamakko, a member of the ruling All Progressives Congress and a serving senator, made the call in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Sokoto on Saturday.
He specifically urged Muslims to take advantage of Eid el-Kabir period to pray for peace and unity as well as economic growth and development of the country.
According to him, fervent prayers for God’s intervention will pave way for the restoration of vibrant economy in the country.
Mr. Wamakko said seeking divine intervention will enable the country to overcome the present economic challenges.
He said with genuine prayer to Almighty God, Nigeria would come out of the current socio-economic crises, militancy, cattle rustling and insurgency among others.
The former governor of Sokoto State advised businessmen and women against rampant increase in prices of food items.
He also called on Nigerians to support the present administration to enable it implement its programmes for the development of the country.
Mr. Wamakko expressed optimism that the nation will be great under the present administration and urged Nigerians to continue to be patient with the government. (NAN)
