Aisha, the wife of President Muhammadu Buhari and other dignitaries gathered for fervent prayers at the State House in Abuja on Thursday.
The event was convened by the Chief Imam of the State House Mosque, Sheikh Abdulwaheed Abubakar Sulaiman.
The event had the theme The Holy Month of Ramadan: A Sober Reflection for All and Sundry.
Dr. Abdurrahman Ahmed, Chief Missioner for Ansaruddeen Society of Nigeria, and keynote speaker, identified the problem of Nigeria emanating from its ingratitude over the blessings it has enjoyed as one of the countries with the highest potential in the world. He said with such ingratitude, the country lost favour with God and “that is why we are witnessing a moral and economic downturn.” He called on Nigerians to be good citizens so that the blessings will return. But, as he said, “Since things didn’t go wrong overnight, they should not be expected to go right overnight.”
