Immediate past governor of Sokoto State, Senator, Aliyu Magatakarda Wamakko yesterday implored Nigerians intercede for the country in prayers.
Wamakko stated this while receiving members of his constituency who paid Sallah homage to his residence in Sokoto.
He also urged Nigerians to embrace farming so as to guarantee food security in the country.
He appealed to youths of the northern extraction who hitherto developed the habit of traveling to other parts of the country during dry season in search of menial jobs to have a rethink and embrace dry season farming.
This according to him will be more beneficial to the youths as whatever they will save at the end of the dry season from such menial jobs cannot be compared with what they will get from dry season farming.
“I admonished all of you and all Nigerians on this day to in the spirit of Eid-El-Kabir intensify prayers for our leaders. Pray for our dear President, Mohammadu Buhari. Pray for our governor, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal and pray for all those in whatever leadership position that, almighty Allah should grant them mercy and the grace to lead with the fear of Allah.”
“For our youths, you must understand that the rainy season is about to end and another dry season is by the corner. Try to embrace dry season farming and avoid the mentality of going elsewhere in search of dry season menial jobs. What you will get from the dry season farming is 20 times better than that of the menial job,” Wamakko said.
