Eid-el-Kabir: Uduaghan preaches unity

Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan of Delta State

The Delta State Governor, Emmanuel Uduaghan, has appealed to Nigerians to eschew bitterness and hatred and let peace reign in the country as Muslims mark Eid-el-Kabir.

Mr. Uduaghan, who made the appeal in his goodwill message to Muslim faithful in the country, said peaceful co-existence and understanding among citizens was essential in the face of the prevailing security challenges in the country.

According to him, the Eid-el-Kabir celebration was a period of sacrifice and reflection, stressing that Muslims should emulate the virtues of total obedience and selfless service as demonstrated by Prophet lbrahim.

He enjoined the Muslim community “to be steadfast in promoting the virtues of lslam, which are peace, love and harmony in all their undertakings,” adding: “I sincerely urge Nigerians to unite and always pray for peaceful co-existence and understanding and eschew bitterness and hatred on the basis of faith, ethnicity or political leanings.”

Mr. Uduaghan said his administration would continue to consolidate on its economic development model of Delta Beyond Oil for all round development of the state and for the benefit of all inhabitants of the state.

He promised to bequeath a peaceful, social and economically developed Delta State that succeeding generations would proud of.
