Former Governor of Abia State and Chief Whip of the Senate, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu has felicitated with the Muslim community on the occasion of Eid-el-Kabir.
Describing the festive season as a period of sober reflection as a people, Kalu charged the Muslim faithful to embrace the teachings of the Holy Qur’an and exemplary lifestyle of Prophet Muhammad (SAW).
While emphasizing the imperative of peace and unity in nation-building, the former Governor urged religious leaders to use their platforms to advocate peaceful co-existence among all ethnic groups in the country.
Kalu admonished Nigerians to offer prayers for leaders at all levels of government, adding that Nigeria is better off as a united and indivisible entity.
He said, “I join our brothers and sisters in Islam in celebrating Eid-el-Kabir.
“It is a season of self-appraisal as individuals in the service of Allah and humanity.
“The teachings of the Holy Qur’an and exemplary qualities of Prophet Muhammad must be demonstrated in our daily lives.
“For a better society, the acts of forgiveness, alms-giving, togetherness, and selflessness must be encouraged.
“As we mark Eid-el Kabir, prayers must be offered for the progress of the country.
Kalu while wishing the Muslim ummah a hitch-free Eid-el-Kabir celebration, called on the political class to use their platforms to advance the cause of the people.
