No fewer than 360 Islamic clerics and Imams on Friday prayed for God to save Nigeria from insecurity in Kano state.
Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje organised the special prayer session which was held in Government House, Kano to mark the Arafat Day in compliance with the Prophetic Tradition on how prayers are accepted by Allah (God).
According to the Governor, more of such prayers will make the Coronavirus pandemic vanish in the country.
“We are here for two reasons: We are all aware that Covid-19 is a trial from Almighty Allah. We can see how many nations of the world are suffering and battling with the pandemic.
“After doing our best -in terms of prevention and cure, it is absolutely necessary for us to pray hard against it so as to have Allah’s blessing and mercy, to be able to live and see to the end of the pandemic.
“Secondly, because of the security challenges faced by this country, we are also praying for Allah to save all the states from the insecurity that is plaguing the country.
In a statement released by the Abba Anwar, Governor’s Chief Press Secretary (CPS), Ganduje urged all Imams in Kano to pray for the state and country during Eid and Juma’at prayers on Friday.
