SEMON seeks continuous supplications for Nigeria, leaders
The Southeast Muslims of Nigeria (SEMON) has reiterated the potency of prayers in the quest for efficacious solution to myriads of challenges confronting Nigeria. The group, therefore, ended its general meeting in Kubwa at the weekend with a special prayer session for the peace, unity and progress of the nation.
“Prayer is the key to success. It is required for individual and general successes. The great improvements in the governance of Nigeria cannot be unconnected to the prayers, which sincere and patriotic Nigerians are openly and secretly offering to God Almighty for guidance and protection for our leaders and especially our President Buhari who has acknowledged in many fora that the prayers of Nigerians are working for him and for the nation. Praying for Nigeria should be a continuous event in our daily lives, not only on Fridays and Sundays.
“We will continue to pray for Nigeria. We seek President Buhari to involve us in government activities to contribute our own quota in any form that is required to add value to good governance,” said the chairman and secretary of SEMON, Muhammad Obiahu Ajah and Abdurrahman Sidiq Urama respectively in a statement.
Also, the group has commended President Muhammadu Buhari for appointing Christians of the North into positions of trust, an attitude that proves that he belongs to all Nigerians. The latest in list of such appointments are Boss Gida Mustapha from Adamawa as the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) and Edward Lametek Adamu from Gombe State as the deputy governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN). Boss replaced Babashir Lawal who was also a Christian from Adamawa State while Edward Lametek replaced Suleiman Barau.
The appointments, the group noted, reflected understanding of the multi-religious nature of Nigeria. They argued further, “These appointments are well deserved. The appointees are Nigerians, though they are from the minorities of the states. The President has proven that all Nigerians are his subjects. This is real democracy. This government means well for the country.
We appeal to those who are bent on distracting the government to give peace a chance. We are sure that the government is working and requires concentration to deliver all its promises to our people.”
