Chairman, House Committee on Foreign Affairs,Rt.Hon.( Dr.) Yusuf Buba Yakub has prayed for the acceptance of the acts of devotion and worship of the Muslim Ummah by Allah as this year’s Ramadan fast commenced among the faithful across the country on Saturday.
In a release signed by the Gombi/Hong Representative and made available to newsmen in Abuja, Saturday,the Adamawa-born politician and farmer said the entrance of the holy month of Ramadan has come to strengthen the faith and hope of the faithful in the Almighty nature of Allah at a time the Nigerian nation was being challenged by myriads of negative happenings across the country.
Buba reminded the Muslim faithful and,indeed,all Nigerians of the Almighty nature of Allah and His inherent ability to achieve His will at every point in time in the lives of those He has created, no matter how bad a situation is. He used the occasion to thank all Nigerians for their ability to rally round one another each time the nation is passing through a negative moment and expressed optimism that,with utmost faith in Allah and unity among all Nigerians the nation would rise to the place of our dreams.
While urging the Muslim faithful to observe with tenacity all the spiritual requirements of this period,Buba prayed for a hitch-free observance of the holy month and for Allah to accept the commitment of His people.
