The All Progressives Congress (APC) has urged Nigerians to pray for the peace and development of the country.
The APC stated this in a statement issued on Wednesday by its National Secretary, Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC), Sen. John Akpanudoedehe on the occasion of this year’s Eid-el-Fitr.
While felicitating with Muslim faithfuls and entire Nigerians on the occasion of the day, Akpanudoedehe enjoined Nigerians to use the period to demonstrate the essence of Ramadan which is about personal sacrifice and sharing with the less privileged.
He said “We also urge Nigerians to use the occasion to pray for our leaders and the country’s peace and development. Our collective efforts is required to ensure that citizens enjoy the many pro-people developmental strides of the President Muhammadu Buhari administration in an atmosphere of peace.
“The APC calls on all people of goodwill and patriotic citizens to use the occasion to extend their spiritual support for the efforts of our administration in its continued quest to place the country on the path of economic prosperity.
“On this day, we assure Nigerians of our commitment to securing the nation from all fifth columnists and secessionist elements who have continued to seek ways of dragging the nation backwards.”
