The Chairman APC Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee and Yobe state governor, Mai Mala Buni, has called for national unity as Muslim faithful celebrate Eid-el-Kabir Sallah festival.
Buni said the period of Eid-el-Kabir, calls for a deep reflection into the lessons of devotion, sacrifice and obedience as exemplified by the willingness of Prophet Ibrahim to sacrifice his son, Ismail.
In a statement signed Monday in Abuja by his director general press and media affairs, Mamman Mohammed, called on Nigerians to support each other irrespective of political and socio-cultural differences to entrench national unity and cohesion “there is great strength in our diversity.”
“This occassion teaches love, sacrifice, honesty, generosity and above all, the fear of God,” governor Buni observed.
“I wish to appeal to priviledged persons to imbibe the lessons of this occassion to support less privileged persons.”
He noted that the virtues of love, honesty, sacrifice and being our brother’s keepers would cement the cracks in Nigeria’s national unity, peace and progress.
Buni assured that the President Muhammadu Buhari administration is committed to restoring peace and security across the country.
He appealed against politicizing security matters saying, “it is a common problem that should be fought collectively and defeated for the common good of the country.
“I appeal to Nigerians to support, cooperate and encourage the security operatives in their patriotic duty of ensuring security and safety across the country” Buni said.
