Peter Obi urges Nigerian Muslims to seek divine intervention for peace amidst national challenges this Sallah

Mr. Peter Obi

Presidential candidate of the Labour Party in the 2023 general elections, Mr. Peter Obi, has called on Nigerian Muslims to utilize the occasion of Sallah to implore Allah's intervention in the current state of affairs in Nigeria.

Obi emphasized the importance of not allowing the prevalent and severe hardships in the country to dampen the spirit of love, unity, and peaceful co-existence among the people. 

Instead, he encouraged individuals to embrace the Eid-El Fitri celebrations as an opportunity to foster unity, solidarity, and to reaffirm their commitment to values such as love, patriotism, and unity, essential for the nation's progress and development.

The former Anambra state governor in a message to Muslims noted that the two major faiths - Christianity and Islam, coming out of their fasting period should allow the solemnness of the holy months to influence their thoughts and actions in relating with one another and thinking about the future of the country.

Obi said that it’s discomforting the amount of blood being shed in this country daily and asked that the situation be taken to Allah for his prompt intervention.

In a statement by his spokesman, Dr Yunusa Tanko, the LP standard bearer said that the blood of thousands of innocent souls being wasted daily in our land at various troubled spots, particularly the stress of school children in the North, and the needless death of our troops should be enough mitigation to plead to God to save this country from destruction.

"An intense prayer for our dear country has become very necessary more than ever before as our nationhood is in dire need of divine intervention to survive.

"Our economy is already under severe stress, the currency is losing value daily, unemployment and inflation rising.

Obi finally implored the people not to despair and miss the essence and meaning of festivity and the divine succour it brings, assuring us that there is always a light at the end of every tunnel as a new Nigeria is still POssible.
