As Nigerians join the world to mark the 2022 Eid-el-Kabir, the National Orientation Agency (NOA) has called on the Muslim faithful to dedicate the celebration to praying for the peace, prosperity and stability of the nation in the face of its current challenges.
NOA Director General, Dr. Garba Abari disclosed this in an Eid-el-Kabir message to the Muslim Ummah in Nigeria, urging them to maintain the virtues of peace, love and sacrifice espoused by Prophet Mohammed.
He also asked Muslims to use the Eid-el-Kabir to seek divine intervention for a quick end to the security challenges bedeviling the country. According to the NOA DG, “It is only with ardent faith in God and love for humanity that the citizens of any nation can peacefully navigate the challenges of nationhood and emerge a stronger, united, more resilient and prosperous people”.
Abari admonished Nigerians to observe necessary safety precautions for their own security and that of their immediate environment as they go about the Sallah celebration, stressing the importance of maintaining constant alertness at all times.
