Former Governor of Ogun State, Otunba (Engr.) Gbenga Daniel has congratulated Muslims on the celebration of this year’s Eid-El-Kabir urging them to imbibe the spirit of sacrifice, forgiveness and selfless service as part of the virtues of Islam.
Daniel, in a goodwill message signed by his Media Officer, Ayo Giwa, stated that Muslims should be guided by the spirit of the festival, which was a symbolic demonstration of total obedience to the will of Allah, kindness to one another and service to humanity as exhibited by Prophet Ibrahim.
Eid-El-Kabir, according to the former Governor, goes beyond festivity but rather, to embrace love, eschew bitterness and offer prayers for genuine peace, unity, and progress of Nigeria and its leadership at all tiers of governance.
He also urged Muslims to always preach against religious extremism and allow lessons of the season to continue to guide their conducts long after the celebrations.
