An lslamic Cleric, Shekh Muritala Agaka, on Saturday advised Nigerians to be more prayerful so that the nation could overcome the economic recession currently being experienced in the country.

Agaka gave this advice while delivering a lecture at the Maoulud Nabbiy for Prophet Mohammed organised by Nuru Shuadahi Society of Nigeria in llorin.

The event, which took place at Salman Saruq Onilu mosque in Oko-erin, featured special prayers for the nation, sermons and rendition of various lslamic songs.

The cleric noted that what Nigeria was currently undergoing was not new in the history of several great nations of the world.

He urged Nigerians regardless of religious inclinations, tribe or ethnicity to further intensify prayers for the country to overcome its problems.

Agaka advised the leaders to always allow equity, justice, fairness and honesty be their guiding principles while directing the affairs of the nation.

The cleric advised Muslims to fully imbibe the virtues of Prophet Mohammed by staying away from destructive tendencies capable of retarding the progress of Nigeria.

Sheikh Abubakar Garba-Onimago, the lmam of Salman Saruq Onilu mosque and leader of Nuru Shuadahi Society of Nigeria, said the event was to recognise the invaluable contribution of Prophet Muhammed to lslam.

An llorin based lslamic scholar, Sheikh Surajudeen Alaka- Gausul, offered prayers for peace, unity and economic prosperity in the country.
