nigeria.news24.com: Lagos – Dr Mashhud Adenrele, the Amir, Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at Nigeria, has urged Nigerians to make religion a positive agent for the attainment of national development.
Adenrele gave the advice on Saturday at the Religious Founders Day entitled: “Social Security, National Peace and Sustainable Development’’, at the main Auditorium of University of Lagos.
He said Christians and Muslims should enlighten the masses on the need for peaceful co-existence, noting that this would strengthen the acceptance of their collective prayers for the nation.
“God accepts the prayers of brothers who are at peace with one another. We should realise the imperative of mutual cooperation to promote social justice and equity.
“We should fight against injustice, wickedness, violence, insecurity, persecution, whether hidden or open corruption, oppression and abuse of authority,” he said.
