…… FELICITATES WITH MUSLIMS.
Muslims across the country have been called upon to maximise the opportunities of the holy month to purse the path of glory, progress, growth and sustainable development in the interest of the country.
This was contained in a message sent to Muslim faithful across the country by the Convener of IBI GIGA AMBASSADORS, Chief Alex Ajipe as the fasting starts on Tuesday.
In a statement issued by his Media Aide, Solomon Adewoye in Akure the State capital, on Tuesday, Ajipe who described the month of Ramadan as a period of spiritual uplift and complete devotion to Allah, encouraged Muslims to take advantage of the Holy month to strengthen their commitment to the service of Allah and humanity
Ajipe said as a nation, what the people, leaders and followers needed to do was to come together and forge a harmonious relationship for the betterment of the country.
According to him, Nigerians must continue to preach peace and speak with one voice against the current security challenge in the country irrespective of ethnic, religion and political differences.
“I urge all the Muslim faithful to use this holy month to reflect on and commit ourselves to the themes of piety, personal discipline, compassion, good brotherliness, and selfless service to humanity”
” Let’s come together and iron out our differences and resolve with strong conviction to work together as peoples from diverse backgrounds but with a common destiny.”
“I also implore you all to maximize the abundant blessings inherent in the month and draw lessons in the month, which include spirit of commitment sharing, self-restraint, obedience and love of Allah, and apply them to our fellow human beings irrespective of ethnic and religious differences”. Ajipe said.
