Nigerians & Muslims Need To Pray Harder – NUT Reveals
The Nigerian Union of Teachers (NUT) on Tuesday in Abuja, urged Muslims to sustain their prayers beyond the Ramadan, for peaceful coexistence in the country.
Secretary-General of the union, Dr Mike Ike-Ene, made the call in an interview with News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) as the teachers felicitated with Muslim faithful in the celebration of Eid-el-Fitr.
He called on Muslims to remain steadfast in their prayers to enable the country to overcome challenges confronting it.
According to Ike-Ene, once these elements are in place, there will be development in the country, there will be no insurgency, Boko Haram, robbery or kidnapping.
He, therefore, encouraged Muslims to sustain the tempo of prayers, saying “Islam teaches peace, love, tolerance and understanding and where these are sustained, there will be no discrimination.
The secretary-general also appreciated Allah for making Muslim faithful overcome all hurdles, and advised Christians to also pray for peaceful coexistence in the country.
