A chieftain of All Progressives Congress, APC, and Commissioner for solid minerals and natural resources, Hon. (Engr.) Muhammed Bashir Abubakar Gegu has urged Muslims to sustain the enduring lessons of Love, compassion, sacrifice, and faith in Allah that Eid-el Kabir represents by making such characteristics enduring virtues in their lives.
The young Commissioner said in his Eid-El-Kabir Message to Muslim faithful issued by his Media Centre and made available to Journalists in Lokoja, Kogi State capital, on Saturday.
The award-winning Commissioner also charged all Nigerians, irrespective of their religious beliefs or ethnic differences, to transform such diversities into a platform for national cohesion, understanding, and development.
“Like Prophet Ibrahim, who intended to make the sacrifice of his son (Ismail) and Allah (SWT) saw his commitment and sacrifice came to his rescue and bailed him out of the critical condition; I believe with little more sacrifice, Allah will bail Nigeria out of the present security situation.”
He also congratulated Kogi State Governor, Alhaji Yahaya Adoza Bello on the occasion of Eid-el-Kabir, cabinet members, and traditional institutions across the State for their overwhelming love, solidarity, and support rendered to present administration in the State.
