Ahead of the 2023 general elections, Hilaquz Zikir Association of Nigeria has called on politicians to play politics in line with tenets of democracy.
The Islamic organisation also urged Nigerians to intensify prayers for the peace and unity of the country to overcome the myriad of challenges facing it.
The association, during its 11th National Zikir and special prayers for sustainable peace in Nigeria, yesterday, in Bauchi, admonished politicians to fear their creator.
National Education Secretary of the association, Dr. Aminu Abdullahi, said that only prayers could save the country from collapse, adding that Nigeria would sure overcome the security issues.
According to Abdullahi, for peace to reign, as Nigerians elect their leaders in 2023, the citizens must continue to pray for the right leadership to be enthroned.
He urged politicians to play politics devoid of bitterness and sentiments, pointing out that politics should not be a do-or-die affair, but to accept God’s will.
“Politicians should adhere to tenets of democratic rules and play politics devoid of rancour. It is possible to do politics in a clean way; it must not be a do-or-die affair. You cannot have what God has not destined for you, no matter how hard you try. So, I advise politicians to fear God in all they do, especially now that we are approaching the 2023 general elections,” he said.
Governor Bala Mohammed of Bauchi State commended the association for its prayers for the peace of the country and the state, urging it to always educate its followers on the need to live in peace with everyone, irrespective of religious differences.
Represented at the event by the Commissioner for Religious Affairs, Umar Kesa, the governor stated that his administration had been working round the clock to ensure peace, pointing out that without peace, no meaningful development could thrive in the state.
