Eid-el-Fitri: Pray for peace and unity in Nigeria – Gbenga Daniel
Former Governor of Ogun State, Otunba (Engr.) Gbenga Daniel has congratulated Muslims on the celebration of the Eid-el-Fitri marking the end of the 30-day fasting period charging them to renew their faith in Allah and pray for peace and unity in the country.
Daniel, in a goodwill message signed by his Media Officer, Ayo Giwa, said; “Muslims should be guided by the spirit of the period of total abstinence, keeping away from vices in all ramifications and imbibing the teachings and pious lifestyles of the Holy Prophet Muhammad”.
Also, the former Governor urged Muslim faithful in the country to uphold the lessons of the Holy Month by avoiding all sinful acts that were abhorred and not allow them to become part of their lives after Ramadan.
The celebration of Eid-el-Fitri, he stated, goes beyond merry making but rather, a period of total submission to the will of Allah as demonstrated during the fasting period.” He then urged Muslims and other religious faithful in the country to continue to have faith in Nigeria and pray for the leaders while also calling on the citizens to reflect on how to contribute meaningfully towards making Nigeria great and pray for greater strength and unity in our diversity.
