Former Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, has felicitated with the Muslim Ummah at Sallah and called on them to follow the examples of total obedience to God and love for one’s neighbour as set by Prophet Ibrahim.

 

Ekweremadu also enjoined all Nigerians to pursue the virtues of justice and unity, noting that no country could make an appreciable progress without such virtues among the leaders and the citizens.

 

He stated this in his Eid-el-Kabir message to the Muslim Ummah on Sunday.

 

Writing on his Facebook page, @iamekweremadu, the lawmaker said: “I felicitate with our Muslim brothers and sisters on this occasion of Eid-el-Kabir.

 

“I enjoin the Muslim Ummah, and indeed all Nigerians, to follow the examples in utmost obedience, sacrifice, selflessness, discipline, justice, love for our neighbour, justice, and commitment to the common good set by Prophet Ibrahim and which Eid-el-Kabir highlights.

 

“I urge Nigerians to unite across ethnic, political, and religious lines to move the nation forward, for no kingdom divided against itself ever makes the desired progress.

 

“Let me also call on our Muslim brothers and sisters to seize the opportunity of this Sallah cerebration to pray for the peace, unity, and progress of the nation. Importantly, let us pray for justice in the land, for with justice and equity, much of the ills and challenges facing our society will be overcome”.

 

Ekweremadu wished all Nigerians a happy and hitch-free Sallah.
