Ramadan: Ansar-ud-deen Society tasks Nigerians on attitudinal change

Ansar-ud-deen Society of Nigeria (ADS) has urged Nigerians to exhibit the right attitude and moral behaviour to project a good image for the country.

Sheikh Muhydeen Bello, the Chairman of Ansar-ud-deen Northern States Council of Missioners, gave the advice at the 29th Annual Ramadan lecture and special prayer for the nation, organised by the society in Abuja.

The lecture was entitled “Ramadan: The Inspirational Month to Seek Allah’s Protection over the Security Challenges in Nigeria.”

Bello, who was the guest lecturer, said once Nigerians fear Allah and exhibit the right attitude, most of the challenges facing the country would be a thing of the past.

He said Nigeria is blessed with abundant human and natural resources but the country has failed to achieve greatness due to corruption and mismanagement.

The cleric enjoined all Muslims to inculcate the right values in children, including deep fear of God, respect for constituted authorities and living a purposeful life through continuous education.

Earlier, a former Chief of Army Staff, Retired Gen. Abdulrahman Dambazau, said the theme of the lecture was apt, adding that it reflected the situation in the country.

He said there is no better way to tackle insecurity that is beyond prayers.

Dambazau expressed optimism that with prayers, all the challenges confronting the country would be  overcome.

Abuja Branch Chairman of Ansar-ud-deen, Alhaji Mohammed Olayiwola, appealed to Nigerians to join President Bola Tinubu in his efforts to take Nigeria to greater heights.

He said our prayers, good words and constructive criticism are required to move the country to its desired level.
