Chairman, Sokodeke Foundation, Ibrahim Yahya-Mohammed, has urged Muslims to use the period of Sallah to intensify prayers for God’s intervention against the Covid-19 pandemic in the country.

Yahaya-Mohammed, the Talban Samarin Nupe, made the call in a Sallah message in Bida, Niger State.

According to him, prayer is the key to success and solution to every problem, hence the need for Muslims to use the period to pray fervently for God’s intervention to end the pandemic.

The chairman also felicitated with the Etsu Nupe, Alhaji Yahaya Abubakar, Nupes at home and in the Diaspora for witnessing the end of Ramadan and celebration of the Eid-el-fitr.

Yahaya-Mohammed stressed the need for collaborative efforts to contain the spread of the Covid-19, which, he noted, had devastated the world economy, Nigeria inclusive.

He also appealed to Nigerians to see government’s directive to stay at home and other policies to contain the spread of the virus as positive steps in tackling the situation.

He, therefore, advised Nigerians to ensure total compliance with the government and health experts’ directives to fight Covid-19 in the country.

The chairman urged religious, political, traditional and community leaders to continue to preach peace, unity and tolerance among the people.

He appealed to wealthy individuals to always assist the less privileged in the society with palliatives, to cushion the effect of the hardship brought to the society

According to him, it will do a lot of good to assist those in need with God-given wealth for the nation to move forward.
