•PDP National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus

The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus, has urged all Nigerians to use the period of the Eid el Fitri celebration to reflect on the situations in the country and pray fervently for the survival of the country.

Secondus said in a Sallah message to mark the end of the 30-day Ramadan fasting period by the Muslim faithful that the situation in the country is dicey and discomforting and that only God's intervention can suffice.

Prince Secondus said in a statement from his media office signed by Ike Abonyi that after four years in the hand of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), all indicators point to the fact that Nigeria as a country is under severe pressure that need prayers and commitment of all to survive.

The PDP boss said that everything point to it that President Muhammadu Buhari's administration has failed woefully  in harnessing the abundant human and material resources in the country and has instead resorted to various undemocratic acts to thwart the will of the people.

“The security situation in the country, the uncertainty in the polity and the worsening economic downturn which are consequences of poor leadership entails that Nigerians should return to God for help and direction,” he said.

Secondus then noted that “the end of the holy month of Ramadan should provide ample period for positive attitude from those in position of authority to underline the lessons of sacrifice and brotherly love warning that our actions must not negate the fundamental prescriptions of our faith.”

According to Secondus, “If Nigerian leaders absorb the lessons of Ramadan and allow it influence their conduct, most of the problems confronting the ordinary people would have been solved.

“These last 30 days of  fasting and prayer will be meaningful in our lives as a nation if we allow the solemnness of the period last influence our thoughts and actions in relating with one another.”

The PDP helmsman appealed to Nigerians of all faith to continue to maintain their harmonious inter-faith relations, for the attainment of the desired peace without which we cannot achieve good governance, national and infrastructural development as well as attract the much needed foreign investors.

He wished all Nigerians a happy Sallah celebration as he urges them to live in peace with one another.
