This is contained in a statement signed by his Press Secretary, Mr Jibrin Gwamna, in Keffi on Wednesday.

The speaker, according to the statement, called on Nigerians to have faith and trust in God as well as believe in Nigeria’s greatness.
“Let Nigerians continue to pray and strive for the nation’s unity, peace, progress and development of the country,” he appealed.
The speaker also urged well-to-do individuals to extend hands of love to the less privileged in order to cushion their lives and give them a sense of belonging in the society.
He enjoined Muslims to sustain the spirit of sacrifice, perseverance, commitment to God’s activities and enhancement of prayers among other good deeds associated with the month of Ramadan.
He enjoined political, religious, traditional and community leaders to continue to preach peace and love among their followers.
