The All Progressives Congress (APC) has urged Nigerians to stop playing politics with the challenges of insecurity facing the country.
This is as it urged the people of the country to instead pray for its President, Muhammadu Buhari.
The APC made the submission in a statement on Saturday by its National Publicity Secretary, Barr Felix Morka which conveyed the ruling party’s Sallah message to Nigerians.
Morka in the statement stressed that Buhari and the government are doing everything possible to curb the insecurity in Nigeria and urged Nigerians to support them in prayers.
It added that the interest of the country must be put first and Nigerians must not give in to those who want to divide the country through terror and hate.
The party said, “We urge Nigerians to continue to support and pray for the government of President Muhammadu Buhari as it tackles our national security challenges just as we continue to reject insensitive and unpatriotic attempts by some partisans to politicise security breaches by enemies of our land.
“On this occasion of Eid-El-Kabir, we urge all Muslims to pray for sustained peace, security and prosperity of the country as the APC-led government continues to prioritize the wellbeing and safety of all Nigerians.
“On this occasion of Eid-El-Kabir, we urge all Nigerians to place national interest first in all dealings. We must not yield to retrogressive elements who seek to divide us through terror and hate.”
