Eid-el-Kabir: Obi celebrates with Muslims, tasks Nigerians on nationhood

By Valentine Amanze

The Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi, has felicitated with the Muslim faithful in Nigeria on the celebration of Eid el Kabir, while urging Nigerians to sustain hope in the nation.

In his Sallah message issued vis his media office at the weekend, Obi appealed to Muslims, and indeed Nigerians to sincerely love one another and pursue lasting peace and unity, which, he said, were critical for national growth and development.

Obi also uged Nigerians to pray, in a special way, for the country which, he said, was passing through very severe challenges.

The Anambra State former governor however pointed out that the nation needed divine intervention to overcome its challenges.

His words: “We are at a very dark moment in our nation’s history, where it seems that every noble ideal that makes us a nation is collapsing before our eyes.

“Insecurity in the country has become unbearable, while our economy continues to struggle under the weight of bad governance and financial mismanagement of our leaders. With prayers and hardwork, we shall overcome.”

Obi also appealed to Nigerians not to give up on the country, but renew their zeal in working towards building a new and more productive nation for all.

He said that with good leadership, Nigeria would be rescued from the doldrums and placed on the path of growth and development.

“We have no other nation but Nigeria, and we must not let it collapse. Let us now break the barriers of religion that divide us, and unite to take back our nation for progress and development,” Obi said.

Besides, he wished the Muslims a happy Eid-el-Kabir celebration.
