Ramadan: Make Life Easy for Muslim Faithful, Mumuni Tells Traders 

Kemi Olaitan in Ibadan

A chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Ambassador Abayomi Nurain Mumuni, has appealed to traders not to complicate the current economic situation in the country.

He made the appeal in a statement signed by his Media Aide, Rasheed Abubakar. 

Mumuni who was the gubernatorial candidate of the defunct Congress for Progressives Change (CPC) in Lagos State in 2011, enjoined the traders to create ease for citizens, adding that this will help to make life comfortable for the fasting Muslims during the period of Ramadan. 

He congratulated Muslims in the country as they join their brothers across the world to welcome the holy month of Ramadan, urging the faithful to increase their consciousness of Allah (SWT), which is the main objective of the Ramadan fast.

“Interestingly, the Ramadan fast of the Muslims is coming at a time the Christian faithful are also observing the Lent, which has started since February. These are two special events for the religious community in Nigeria.

“I therefore urge both Muslims and Christians to make good use of this period to uplift their spirituality and especially pray for our country. We need economic recovery, increased security, prosperity and wisdom for the leaders.

“We shouldn’t lose hope in our country. Prayer is key in turning around the fortunes of Nigeria. So, we should offer a lot of prayers for the country and its leadership. We should not curse the country because it belongs to all of us.

“Once again, I congratulate the Muslim community in Nigeria and across the world on the commencement of Ramadan. May Allah accept all our acts of worship and enable us to witness many more of the holy month”, the statement read.

Mumuni, a security expert, also tasked the well-to-do members of the society to assist the needy and less privileged people.

“Sharing and charity is very much encouraged in this period. The economic situation in the country has even made it more imperative. The privileged people in the society should extend hands of fellowship to the needy”, he said.
