Mr Obi, in a statement by his media aide, Valentine Obieyem, encouraged Muslims to continue to preach peace and unity as required for the country’s growth

“The season is another opportunity to pray in a special way, as the country is passing through severe challenges and needs divine intervention to overcome,” he said.
