Cleric urges Muslims to pray for Nigeria

Osogbo – Alhaji Saidu Buhari, the Chief Imam of Jundulahi Central Mosque in Osogbo, on Thursday urged Muslims to continue to pray for the country’s peaceful existence, security and prosperity.

Buhari, who gave the advice in an interview in Osogbo, also urged Muslim faithful to emulate Prophet Mohammed.

“Mohammed during his lifetime preached and practised a religion anchored on unity, peace and love for his neighbours,’’ he said.

Also, another Muslim cleric, Mohammed Adepoju of Adigun Central Mosque in Osogbo, appealed to all Muslims to serve God wholeheartedly and always help the less privileged.

He condemned the killing of people in the name of religion as all religions of the world preach peace.

“Nigerians must unite in tackling security challenges as Muslims celebrate Eid-el-Maulud,’’ Adepoju said. (NAN)
