Mr. Daniel asked for prayers.
A former Ogun State Governor, Gbenga Daniel, has noted that Nigeria is in dire need of divine intervention to put an end to the incessant blood-letting in the land.
In a message to felicitate with Muslims on the celebration of Eid-El-Fitri, which marks the end of Ramadan, Mr. Daniel expressed his belief in the power of prayers especially after the month of self-denial, forgiveness, holiness and overall moderation which Ramadan period was noted for.
Mr. Daniel urged Muslim faithful to hold onto the lessons of the holy month and intensify their prayers for a lasting solution in resolving the security challenges facing the country.
The former Governor also enjoined them to sustain the ideals of the month and always be reminded about the spiritual message which the period signifies for all by emulating Prophet Muhammed’s (SAW) way of life.
“The period of Ramadan was one of spiritual re-birth which underscores love, friendship, brotherliness, generosity and above all honesty and truth in all our ways. We must shy away from habits that negate the tenets of Islam as a religion of peace, tolerance, truth and civility”, he stressed.
He also urged the people of Ogun State to be steadfast and always reflect on ways to make Ogun State regain its pride of place in the comity of states in Nigeria by ensuring good and quality representation at all tiers of government in the coming elections.
