Founder of ‘The Resurrection Praise International Ministries,’ Samson Mustapha Benjamin, has called on Nigerians to cooperate with the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 to help stem the spread of the virus in the Nigeria.
This is just as he prayed to God for a speedy end to the pandemic across the world, emphasizing that there was need for more religious harmony at this period in our national life to build bridges of love, peace and mutual respect for one another.
He therefore, called on all Nigerians to continue to live together in harmony irrespective of religion, tribe and political affiliations, as well as shun all negative tendencies capable of fueling disaffection and acrimony between adherents of the various religions in the country.
In his recent good will message to Muslim faithfuls on the Sallah celebration, signed by his Director of Media Communication, Hyacinth Chinweuba, Benjamin urged them to always pursue peace and unity in all their endeavours.
“At this auspicious season of Ramandan, I wish to convey my sincere felicitation to my Muslim brothers and sisters across the Country on the successful completion of this year’s Ramadan fast. I wish also to remind and admonish them to allow the spirit of love, charity and total submission to the will of God which they exhibited throughout the Ramandan season to lead them always. Such virtues are no doubt essential in the lives of every citizen of this Country in our resolve to make Nigeria a more prosperous country,” the message read in part.
Benjamin acknowledged the enormous sacrifices made by the Muslims these past weeks by staying away from their places of worship in adherence to the social distancing guideline to contain the virus, and encouraged all to exercise patience and continue to cooperate with the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19.
