Eid: Ex Governor Adebayo Felicitates With Muslims

 

 

By Adewumi Ademiju, Ado -Ekiti

A Minister -Designate and former Governor of Ekiti State, Otunba Adeniyi Adebayo, has felicitated with Muslims on the celebration of the  Eid-el-kabir, calling on them to exhibit more passion to nation building.

Adebayo reminded that part of the obligations of any citizen to his nation, is to pray for the survival of his country and seek God’s guidance for the leaders, describing this celebration as opportunity for Muslims Ummah to pray for Nigeria to be at peace and attain development.

The former Governor said this in his goodwill message to the Muslims in Ado Ekiti on Sunday wishing them a more rewarding celebration at  Sallah.

Wishing the Muslims Barka -de-Sallah, the Minister-designate urged them to ruminate on the state of the nation at this time when the challenges of kidnappings and senseless killings are crippling the economy and derailing governance, thereby  bringing disrepute  to our collective integrity, both at continental and global scenes.

Adebayo passionately appealed  to Muslims to always bring to bare the spiritual lessons of love, tolerance, generosity, dedication, sacrifice, focusness and commitment to one’s religious faith  as taught by the prophets in holy  Quran .

“Islam is synonymous with  peace and every celebration under this umbrella represents peace and it is by this our Muslim brothers must act to promote national cohesion.

“Peaceful dispositions and co-existence among citizens is a catalyst to growth and development. Any nation where citizens don’t value love can’t progress and this must guide our actions all the time.

“The essence of Eid-el-kabir is to wholeheartedly  appreciate  Allah for His protection to witness another year. While doing this, our Muslim brothers must make solemn supplications on behalf of the nation, so that we can regain the respect we have lost through our actions and inactions .

“As I felicitate with you on this joyous occasion, I appeal that you do things with  moderation and in line with the commandments of Almighty Allah”, he stated.
