“We want to state our readiness to collaborate with the new Southeast governors in maintaining the already existing mutual relationship between the herders and host communities in the region.
“We pray that Allah in his benevolence, grants our leaders the wisdom to administer the nation in a way that Nigerians will live happily wherever they chose to, without fear of molestation or rejection.
“We also pray for a leadership that will restore peace, safety and trust across tribal lines in Nigeria; for them to have the zeal and political will to make Nigeria work effectively to ensure that it takes its rightful place among the continent of Africa and globally,” he said.
Siddikki revealed further that the assembly prayed for increased understanding, tolerance and accommodation among the peoples of Nigeria.
He admonished; “It is time Nigerians unite and pursue the common good as well as douse the tension and insecurity in the country.
“None of our members will willingly do anything that will jeopardize the peaceful coexistence of Nigerians. Rather, we will continue to pray for a one and better Nigeria.
“Nigerians should focus on those positive ideals that are mutually beneficial to all the people.
“We pray for a prosperous nation which can only be attained in a peaceful environment.
