Eid el-Kabir: Okowa calls for unity, love

24 September 2015, 11:28

Asaba - Delta governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, has urged Muslims in the country to embrace unity and love as they celebrated the Eid el-Kabir.

The governor made the call in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Aniagwu Ehiedu.

While felicitating with the Islamic faithful, he urged them to the opportunity of the feast to demonstrate the essence of unity among various ethnic groups in the country.

"Religion is a binding cord which espouses unity with a forward-looking resilience and every adherent who values his or her faith cannot afford to break from it," he said.

He, however, reminded the Muslims of the need to share whatever they had with their neighbours as a mark of love in accordance with the injunctions of Prophet Muhammed.

The governor observed that the current level of crime and violence in the society could be moderated if the ‘’haves’’ were magnanimous enough to open their doors to the "have-nots".

He said that there could not be a more fitting time to reach out to the less-privileged than now.

Okowa congratulated the Muslims and urged them to use the occasion to pray for the new government and the recovery of the nation’s economy.
