Niger State Governor, Alhaji Abubakar Sani-Bello has urged Muslim Ummah to pray for peace, unity and security of the country, noting that no meaningful development can take place in an atmosphere of insecurity.

"I therefore call on you all to remain firm, honest and committed to the worship of Allah."
“We must remain firm and prayerful especially with the security challenges we are experiencing. We must also support our security agencies in checkmating the activities of criminal elements in the society.
"Ramadan is a holy month in which prayers are answered and sins forgiven, therefore we need to engage in true worship and supplications in other to seek the favour and blessings of Allah in this world and hereafter."
Sani-Bello also urged them to avoid engaging in unwholesome activities. He singled out market men and women and appealed to them not to hike the price of food stuff and other essential commodities during this period.
