The chief whip of Lagos state House of Assembly, Rotimi Abiru, has called on Muslims to use the period of holy month of Ramadan to pray for solutions to the country's challenges including security issues.
Legit.ng reports that Abiru who represents Shomolu constituency 2 at the Assembly, made the call on Monday, May 6, in a message to commemorate the commencement of 2019 Ramadan, adding that the state of security in Nigeria calls for prayer.
He said: "I believe with prayer and the efforts of our security agents, all wicked activities of kidnappers, Boko Haram and other forms of criminality will be solved."
