Group tasks political leaders on alleviating hardships facing Nigerians

Spread the love

By Taiye Agbaje

The Companion, an association of Muslim men in business and professions, has urged governments at all levels to strive to make contingency plans that would alleviate the hardship facing majority of the citizens.

The group made the call in a statement jointly signed by its National Amir, Mr Kamil Olalekan, and the Public Affairs Secretary, Alhaji Muideen Adeleke on Thursday.

The group also urged the citizens to give maximum support to the government, so that the country could regain its lost glory before long.

They congratulated the adherents of Islam worldwide on the occasion of the ongoing 1445 AH ( 2024) Ramadan season.

The group contended that the 2024 Ramadan fast could not have come at a better time, other than now that Nigeria is faced with enormous challenges in virtually all facets.

It stressed that the ongoing spiritual rebirth offered the followers of Prophet Muhammad, an ample opportunity to seek the face of Allah, so that the country could successfully navigate through the myriad of problems confronting her.

“No country has ever developed without passing through the turbulence.

“But patriotism on the part of the government and the governed, makes most of them to overcome their teething challenges,” it said.

The group equally enjoined the Nigerian youth not to lose hope in the nation but join the legion of forward looking individuals whose belief in the Nigerian project remains unshaken.

It advised the citizenry to refrain from sabotaging government programmes while the country’s leaders should strive to make contingency plans that would alleviate the excruciating hardship facing majority of Nigerian citizens.

The organisation maintained that rather than curse the leaders in frustration, the ongoing Ramadan season provides a veritable window for the righteous to explore, in the overall interest of the nation.

“It is imperative that adherents of Islam take maximum advantage of the ongoing Ramadan fast to seek restitution through various meritorious deeds, instead of venting their anger on the leaders,” it said.

The Companion reminded the adherents of Islam of the need to prioritise giving out charity to assist many less privileged Muslims to partake in the all-important annual spiritual rebirth.(NAN)(www.nannews.ng)
