According to the statement, the programme tagged, ‘Fasting and Prayer for Nigeria.’ will start from November 1.

“Marathon fasting will hold between November 1 and November 14 for those who prefer that; and prayer guide shall be forwarded soon.

“Where possible, brethren should be encouraged to come together for prayers while ensuring that all COVID-19 government regulations and safety precautions are put in place,’’ the statement reads partly

In the same vein, some residents of Katsina on Tuesday organised a special prayers for security and peace in the state and in Nigeria.

The prayers were organised by a group called Save Katsina Group during which Islamic and Christian clerics offered prayers.

Moslem clerics who offered prayers included Mallam Nura Yaradua, Imam Rabiu Lawal, and Sheikh Ismail Alkashinawi, while their Christian counterparts were led by Pastor Odulaja Samuel.

The SKG Coordinator, Hamza Saulawa, said, “As patriotic Nigerians, we cannot afford to be onlookers. Our group has condemned in strongest terms the violence of ENDSARS protests. We call on Federal Government to constitute a separate panel that will probe the alleged incident of shooting at Lekki.

“Let us use this opportunity to advise our youths that there are hundreds of ways of civil approaches instead of violence.”

Meanwhile, Katsina State remains as Moslems in the state marked the al Maulid Nabiy (celebration of the birth of Prophet Muhammed).
