Obi: 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

 By Valentine Amanze

The Labour Party (LP) Presidential candidate in the 2023 general elections, Mr. Peter Obi, has called on Nigerian Muslims to use the window availed by Sallah to seek Allah’s intervention in the nation’s situation.

Obi also appealed to Nigerians not to allow the prevailing hardship in the country to affect their spirit of love, brotherliness and peaceful co-existence.

The Anambra State former governor, who gave the advice in his Sallah message to Muslims, said that the two major faith in Nigeria, 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.

Besides, Obi lamented the amount of blood shed in the country daily and called for Allah’s intervention.

The LP standard bearer said that the blood of thousands of innocent souls being wasted daily at various troubled spots, particularly the stress of school children in the North, and the needless death of troops should be enough mitigation to plead to God to save the 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,” he said.

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