Ramadan: PENGASSAN Urges Muslims To Pray For Nigeria

Published

The Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (PENGASSAN) has urged Muslim faithfuls to use the Holy month of Ramadan to pray against all obstacles and challenges militating against the growth and development of the country, as well as for Elected Officers at all levels of Governance.

The Union in a statement signed by its General Secretary, Comrade Lumumba Okugbawa, made available to LEADERSHIP also called on all Muslims to imbibe the true essence of this Holy period which teaches perseverance, tolerance, purity, love and refrain from all negativity of life such as anger and hatred which are not attributes of a good Muslim.

“We enjoin Nigerians to eschew ‎things that can hamper the peaceful co-existence of the country as the time has come for the Nation regardless of socio-economic, religious, political and ethnic differences, to rise against insurgency and other acts of violence,” the statement added.

The statement further stated that, “PENGASSAN also condemns the high rate of insurgency in some parts of the country especially in areas predominantly occupied by Muslims and therefore call on Nigerians to see the country’s diversity as a blessing for national unity, peace and integration.”

The union lamented that negative issues such as, ethnic and religious chauvinism, often wrapped around religious cover to justify evil and un-Islamic positions should be discouraged, as the religion of Islam is an antithesis to violence and insurgency.
