Saraki preaches peace among Nigerians at Sallah

Senate President Saraki,
The Senate President, Bukola Saraki, has asked Nigerians to imbibe the spirit of peace and unity as they celebrate the Eid-el-Kabir festival.

Saraki called Nigerians to increase their efforts in charitable endeavours, perseverance and spiritual intercession for the nation.

In a statement by his spokesman, Yusuph Olaniyonu, the Senate President urged Nigerians to further devote their prayers at the Eid praying grounds, by calling on Allah to restore peace in all parts of the country, strengthen the unity and rebuild the economy.

He commended Muslims on the celebration of the 2018 Eid el-Kabir festival and described the special occasion as “a period that honours the willingness of Prophet Ibrahim to sacrifice his son to show submission to Allah’s command”.

“As we have read from the Glorious Qur’an, just when Ibrahim was about to kill his son Ishmael, Almighty Allah (SWT) put a sheep in its place. Muslims use Eid el-Kabir to celebrate Prophet Ibrahim’s complete obedience to the will of Allah and as a reminder of our own willingness to make sacrifices in obedience to Allah,” he added.
