National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus has said that only prayers can save Nigeria from what he called an apparent collapse of governance and justice in the country.
He particularly charged Nigerian Muslims to pray for Allah to touch the hearts of leaders in the country to be sensitive to the deteriorating plight of the poor.
Secondus said the worsening condition of Nigerians called for intense supplication to God for the much-needed succour.
This was contained in a statement from his media office which was signed by Ike Abonyi, to mark this year’s Eid-el Mauled celebration.
“The increasing number of people dropping to the extreme poverty level in our country in the last four years and the inability of the government in power to deliver good governance entails that we return to God for help,” the statement said.
“When a regime who should solve problems and confront myriads of challenges are copiously confused and engrossed in needless squabbles about 2023, our fate certainly is in God’s hand.
Prince Secondus urged Muslims to learn a lot from Prophet Mohammad whose birthday the Islamic community are celebrating globally today and stand up for justice and equity in our land.
He noted that Prophet Mohammad was an advocate of peace and justice which this country desperately needs at the moment.
“Let us use this solemn time to ask God to end the endless bloodletting in our land and bring to us leaders at various levels that would put the country first.”
