The Chief of Naval Staff, Vice Admiral Emmanuel Ogalla, on Saturday called on Nigerians to pray for the country’s peace, unity and progress in the face of the current challenges.
He said although the country was passing through daunting challenges both economic and security wise, he said with prayers God intervention is assured.
The naval chief gave the charge at an Iftar (breaking of fasting) programme organised by the Nigerian Navy Islamic Directorate, in the spirit of this year’s Ramadan in Abuja.
According to him, with socio-economic challenges bedeviling the country, there was a need for citizens to be steadfast in seeking Allah’s intervention.
“The nation is facing daunting challenges particularly from the security and economic aspects of our nationhood. And in addition to working hard to overcome these challenges, we believe that man being a spiritual being will also need prayers.
“This year’s Ramadan also coincided with Lenten period for the Christians. This emphasizes the oneness of all religions particularly Islam and Christianity. We must jointly continue to pray for God Almighty to intervene in our situation,” he said.
Ogalla, who admonished Nigerians to dedicate their lives to serving God wholeheartedly in order to earn His mercies, said it was necessary for all and sundry to pray for peace and security in Nigeria.
He noted that the President and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces was doing everything possible to see a turnaround in the country and “those of us who are his field officers are equally ready to do all that is humanly possible”.
“I want to enjoin our Muslim brothers and sisters to continue to pray for peace and security of this nation,” he added.
