President Muhammadu Buhari on Saturday urged Nigerians to continue to pray for peace, unity and stability in the country.
The president made the call in an address at the 70th anniversary of the Qaddriyya in Kano.
Buhari, who was represented at the event by the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Alhaji Sabo Nanono, said the call was imperative to foster unity and address security challenges in the country.
He enjoined the youth to avail themselves of the opportunities of agriculture and economic empowerment programmes initiated by the Federal Government to learn trades, become self-reliant and engage in productive activities.
Buhari expressed delight over the conduct of the event and commended the Leader of the Qadiriyya, Sheikh Qaribullah Nasiru-Kabara, for his support and constant prayers for the country.
In a remark, the Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, said the state government had initiated road infrastructure, health, and viable projects aimed at creating enabling environment for the teaching of Islamic religion in the state.
