ABUJA-SPEAKER  of the House of Representatives, Hon Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, has said the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, which began across the globe on Friday, should be used to pray for peace, unity and progress of Nigeria.

According to the Speaker , Ramadan is a time of sacrifice, a time when Moslems abstain from the physical pleasures of this life, and seek blessings from the Almighty through the study of the Holy Koran, the teachings of the Holy Prophet and sharing with neighbours and the needy.

In a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Public Affairs, Malam Imam Imam, Tambuwal said it behoves on all Nigerians, especially Muslims, to dedicate much of their time to acts of worship in order enjoy maximum favor from the almighty God.

He said all Nigerians should use the Ramadan period to embrace love for one another, sacrifice for the overall growth and development of the nation, and cooperation with government for the attainment of our national goals.

The Speaker further urged Nigerians to let their actions match their prayers.

“As we begin the Ramadan fast, we must take actions that match our prayers. The holy month is a period of sacrifice, prayers and reflection on our attitudes and contributions to nation-building. It bears repeating here that without peace and unity, socio economic development will continue to elude our society,” he added.

Tambuwal therefore prayed for an end to the spate of bombings, ethno-religious conflicts and other acts of insecurity bedeviling the country.
