Eid-el-Kabir: Imbibe spirit of love, patriotism – Obi urges Muslims


Peter Obi, Labor Party Presidential candidate has urged Muslims in Nigeria to imbibe the spirit of love, brotherliness, and peaceful co-existence.

Obi made the call in a series of tweets on Wednesday.

He said Muslim faithful should use this year’s Eid-El Kabir festivities to engender the spirit of oneness and also re-dedicate themselves to the virtues of love, patriotism, and unity for the desired national development.

“Sallah gives us ample opportunities to appreciate our creator whose mercy and grace to us are enormous, even when we do not deserve them.

“Nigerian Muslims should use this solemn period of Sallah to present Nigeria’s discomforting situation to Allah for His prompt intervention.

“I urge Nigerians to devote themselves to the values that unite and bind all citizens in love. Let us permanently put behind all divisive tendencies.

“We should not despair and miss the essence and meaning of Eid-el-Kabir festivities, and the divine succour that it brings in assuring us that there is always a light at the end of every tunnel. A new Nigeria is Possible.

“Happy Sallah Celebration!”
