While praying for an end to the security challenges, the Imam also prayed for bountiful harvests during raining season, seeking God’s intervention in ensuring peaceful, free, fair and credible elections in 2023.
“We need to repent to Allah and seek his forgiveness. All these are happening as a result of our habits and wrong doings. May Allah forgive us all,” the Chief Imam said.
Speaking to journalists shortly after the prayers, Chairman of Bichi Local Government Council, Professor Yusuf Muhammad Sabo, said the prayer session became necessary considering the security challenges in the country.
