Why Nigerians, Muslims need to pray – NUT

                          

The Nigerian Union of Teachers (NUT) on Tuesday in Abuja, urged Muslims to sustain their prayers beyond the Ramadan, for peaceful coexistence in the country.

Secretary-General of the union, Dr Mike Ike-Ene, made the call in an interview with News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) as the teachers felicitated with Muslim faithful in the celebration of Eid-el-Fitr.

He called on Muslims to remain steadfast in their prayers to enable the country to overcome challenges confronting it.

“I want, on behalf of NUT and teachers all over the country to congratulate our colleagues, our Muslim brothers, who have taken it upon themselves to join and complete the fasting.

“It is a thing of joy, because they have been in prayer for this country, this country deserves and needs prayers in all angles for peace, love and unity to be sustained.”

According to Ike-Ene, once these elements are in place, there will be development in the country, there will be no insurgency, Boko Haram, robbery or kidnapping.

“All these are happening, because there is no love,” he said.

He, therefore, encouraged Muslims to sustain the tempo of prayers, saying “Islam teaches peace, love, tolerance and understanding and where these are sustained, there will be no discrimination.

“No one will remember whether you are from the North or West or South-South or anywhere.”

The secretary-general also appreciated Allah for making Muslim faithful overcome all hurdles, and advised Christians to also pray for peaceful coexistence in the country.
