Pray for our leaders on good governance – Abubakar-Bida 

 

The chairman, New Niger Development Project (NNDP), Alhaji Mustapha Abubakar-Bida, has called on Nigerians to pray for leaders at all levels to deliver good governance.

He made the appeal in an interview with newsmen on his Eid-el-Kabir Sallah message in Bida Wednesday.

He also called on the Muslim Ummah and Christians to keep praying for all the elected and appointed leaders to succeed in providing the much needed dividends of democracy to the citizenry.

Abubakar-Bida, who is also the Sarkin Dawaki Nupe, felicitated with the Muslim Ummah as they celebrated Eid-el Kabir, urging them to emulate Prophet Ibrahim’s virtues of sacrifice, obedience and submissiveness to the will of Allah in order to be successful in life.

The NNDP chairman said what the leaders needed from Nigerians was their prayers to enable them provide good governance.

 “Nigerians should continue to pray for President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Gov. Umar Bago as well as other elected and appointed political office holders in the interest of development and growth of the country,” he urged.

Sarkin Dawaki Nupe also enjoined Nigerians to embrace religious tolerance which, he said, would promote peace across the country and enhance national development.

He further appealed to the adherents of the two major religions in the country to intensify prayers for improved economy and return of permanent peace and unity of the country.
