The National Council of Muslim Youth Organisation (NACOMYO), Sokoto state chapter has embarked on voluntary prayer and fasting for peace, and success of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.

The President of the organisation, Aliyu Ibrahim Kyautawa said this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday in Sokoto.

“We are praying and fasting every two weeks for peace, tranquility and success of President Muhammadu Buhari who means well for the people of this country.”

Kyautawa stated that the organisation does not have any link with the President or any of his ministers, nor belonged to any political party.

According to him, our resolve is borne out of love for the country.

“We are not sponsored by anybody and we don't belong to any political party and we are not doing it for any material gain.”

Kyautawa said that the members of the group were convinced that Buhari had the ability to liberate the Nigerian masses from the bondage of poverty, insecurity and bad governance because of his track records.

He explained that the prayer and fasting was first conceived in 2014 when the country was bedevilled by a myriad of challenges.

“This is why we decided to embark on voluntary prayer and fasting every two weeks for peace in the country.

“We are also praying for the success of Gov. Aminu Tambuwal in Sokoto state.

“Buhari has the masses at heart, but his efforts are being frustrated by some unpatriotic Nigerians.

“They have been sabotaging his efforts in a bid to make this nation ungovernable for him, but all their efforts would be in vein.”

According to him, the organisation has been sponsoring media campaign to educate the public on the need to also change their attitude and support the government, both morally and spiritually.

Kyautawa said he was optimistic that the hardship being faced by Nigerians would soon be a thing of the past. (NAN)
