The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Uche Secondus is of the opinion that Nigeria needs to be saved from failed leadership and has urged Muslims to pray during this period of Sallah.
Secondus encouraged Muslims in the country to seek the face of God as a remedy, in his Sallah message released on Saturday by his media office.
Islam is one of two major religions in Nigeria and Sallah marks the end of the 30days Ramadan fasting period of the Muslims.
He said “Our refusal to allow the lessons of Ramadan influence our conduct is the reason we continue to suffer despite the lavish blessing from God to us as a nation,
The lessons of the last 30 days of fasting and prayer will be meaningless in our lives if the solemnness of the period does not influence our thoughts and actions in relating with one another”
Secondus further said the COVID-19 pandemic has exposed the failure of leadership in Nigeria.
He added that while leadership has always been a problem in Nigeria, “President Muhammadu Buhari and his ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, elevated the failure to an unprecedented level that only a fervent prayer to God can save the country,” a statement from his media office said.
