From Aliyu Lawal, Minna.
Nigerians have been advised to genuinely return to Allah as only solution to all the myriad of problems bedeviling the country.
Chief Of Staff Government House Minna Niger state Malam Ibrahim Balarabe Kagara gave the advice in his admonition after leading a congregation of Muslim faithfuls to perform Asr prayer at Government House mosque Minna.
Malam Ibrahim Balarabe reminded Nigerians that apportioning blames on both the Federal and state governments over insecurity woes will not auger well for much needed peace in Nigeria.
According to him we have collectively contributed to the current security problem confronting us as a state and Nigeria and that only genuine repentance prayers and return to Allah will solve the problem.
Alh Ibrahim Balarabe who commended both the Federal and Niger state government as well as security agencies for their efforts at tackling insecurity also appealled to Nigerians to as a matter of urgency repent wholeheartedly and return to Allah for his intervention.
He however maintained that no amount of Federal and state Governments intervention or even United Nations in tackling insecurity will succeed unless we collectively return to Allah as the only solution.
On the remaining five days of Ramadan which he described as golden period Malam Ibrahim Balarabe would want Muslims to use the period to pray for Allah mercy and intervention towards addressing current security challenges in Niger state and Nigeria.
