Ramadan: Channel your prayers to reform Nigeria – Bamidele tells Muslims


The Chairman of the Southern Senators Forum, Senator Opeyemi Bamidele, has rejoiced with the Muslim Ummah in Ekiti State and Nigeria on the commencement of the 2022 Ramadan fast.

The Chairman, Senate Committee on Judiciary, Human Rights and Legal Matters, reminded Muslims that their prayers are required to bail the country out of senseless carnages shaking the country’s foundation at this time.

The All Progressives Congress chieftain, said this in a statement, on Saturday, felicitating the Muslims on the commencement of the 30-day holy fasting and prayers by adherents.

Bamidele appealed to Muslims to be circumspect of the parlous economic, political and social states of the country and endeavour to offer prayer supplications that could bring swift spiritual interventions, to cleanse the blood of the innocent would being shed on a daily basis. 

The federal lawmaker urged the Muslim Ummah to deploy the 30-day of holiness to have a rethink about how to make Nigeria better in all facets, particularly overcoming the challenges of bloodshed, corruption, cybercrime, ritual killings, and economic deprivation and despondency that have taken over the land.

“As I congratulate all the Muslims in Ekiti State and Nigeria, let us remind ourselves that what we are experiencing in Nigeria today calls for sober reflection in view of the present predicament we are in.

“On a daily basis, we hear of carnage and killing of innocent souls. Economic hardship had taken away happiness from our people. It is an open fact that we need spiritual rebirth and this Ramadan offers the opportunity to usher in a new chapter in our national life for peace, progress and enjoy a life full of abundance,” he said.

Bamidele told the Muslim brothers to allow the preaching of Prophet Mohammed (SWT) about Ramadan to reflect in their lives, for their prayers to be fruitful and fervent before Allah.

“Ramadan teaches holiness, sacrifices, peace, joy, love and togetherness regardless of religion, political affiliations and ethnicity and all these must be brought to bear in all our dealings and comportments.

“I felicitate our Muslim brothers on the beginning of this spiritual and holy month and I pray God grants them the wherewithal to fulfil all that is required for rapid reformation of their individual lives and the nation at large”, Bamidele said.
