The Northern Governors Forum has called for more prayers for the unity, peace and progress of the nation, as Muslim faithful mark this year’s Eid-el-Fitr.

The Chairman of the forum and governor of Plateau, Mr Simon Lalong, made the appeal in a statement by his Director of Press and Public Affairs, Dr Makut Macham on Wednesday in Jos.

He urged the Muslim faithful to continue to demonstrate faith in the prayers, which were offered especially during the Ramadan fast.

He said that God did not make a mistake by creating Nigeria with all its diversities, and would therefore not allow evil to prevail to destroy the country.

The chairman said although Nigeria was currently experiencing troubling times, hope must not be lost because hard times do not last forever.

Lalong said the current security situation demands more action from both government and citizens, who must work together to expose bad elements desperate to make Nigeria an unstable entity.

The governor implored political and religious leaders to avoid rhetoric that further inflames passions, and further divide the nation along religious, ethnic and parochial sentiments.

He wished Nigerians a happy festive period while praying for a celebration in peace and love.
