Ramadan: NFSC urges Muslims to pray against Coronavirus

The Nigeria Football Supporters Club (NFSC) has congratulated Muslim faithful on Ramadan season, which begins Friday after sighting of the seasonal moon on Thursday.

In a telephone chat with the media, the national chairman of NFSC, Rev. Samuel Ikpea, described this year’s Ramadan fasting as auspicious and timely.

“I am happy for Muslim members and indeed, all Muslim faithful in Nigeria and across the world, that we are all alive to witness and celebrate another Ramadan period.

“This year’s fasting period is remarkable because of the present predicament of the world due to the coronavirus pandemic,” he said.

He enjoined Muslims across the world to seize the season to pray against the ravaging global pandemic.

“We are a prayerful people. And I want to urge my Muslim brothers and sisters, as well as, all Nigerians to use this period of 30-day-fasting, for supplications and spiritual warfare against the coronavirus pandemic.

“We agree that so far, the deadly disease has defeated all logical and medical postulations. However, I believe strongly that with prayers, fasting and sincere supplications to God Almighty, he would heal and save the world from this killer coronavirus,” Ikpea prayed.

He admonished people to adhere strictly to government directives, as well as obey the health advice by staying at home, washing the hands regularly and using hand sanitizers.
