Eid-El-Kabir: Nigerians need tolerance, perseverance – AA chairman, Omo-Aje


The National Chairman of Action Alliance, AA, Dr. Adekunle Rufai Omo-Aje has said that Nigerians must build and maintain a compassionate and peaceful relationship with fellow citizens for a better Nigeria.

The Chairman made the assertion in a statement in Kaduna on Sunday as part of his goodwill message to celebrate the Eid-El-Kabir.

According to him, the Eid-El-Kabir celebration called for a reflection “on what binds Nigerians together, which includes the need to show love, compassion, and support for one another.”

He implored Muslims to remember the sacrifice made by Prophet Ibrahim and strive to reciprocate the act of kindness to their fellow brothers and sisters.

The Chairman stressed that selfless sacrifice and communal love as exemplified by Prophet Ibrahim and his son, Ishmael, would remain a guide to anyone willing to submit themselves to the will of Allah.

He said, “The Islamic religion preaches togetherness and the value of communal living. Your sacrifice should always be charity to the poor, good deeds, and submission to the Almighty Allah.

“I urge us all to have a sober reflection on the State of our Nation, as we mark this year’s Sallah. Though the challenges confronting our country look intimidating, I am optimistic that with unity of purpose, we will surmount them.

“Let us continue to practice the lesson of tolerance, perseverance, and love for our neighbors that we have learned. Let us also learn to always follow the path of dialogue in resolving our differences rather than advocating for violence.”
