 The Senator representing the Lagos East Senatorial District, Senator Gbenga Ashafa, has urged all Muslims to pray for continued peace and prosperity in Nigeria, as they observe the month of Ramadan.

In a statement on Wednesday, the senator, said he joined all Muslim faithful in welcoming Ramadan, adding that it was an obligation for Muslims “for us to restrain from evil, learn God’s consciousness and learn to be God-fearing.”

Ashafa said, “The period of Ramadan teaches us self-control, self-restraint, tolerance for one another irrespective of religion or tribe. It is also a month for extreme prayers, love and generosity.”

He called on Muslims to remember the areas that were experiencing pockets of violence across the country in addition to their prayers for peace and prosperity.

 “While using this period to share love, forgive and reflect spiritually, I implore us all to pray for continued peace and prosperity in our dear country, while also remembering the pockets of violence happening in certain parts of the country,” he added.
