The duo of the Senate President, Senator Abubakar Bukola Saraki, and his immediate predecessor, Senator David Mark, yesterday both sent their felicitations to the Nigerian Muslims on the occasion of Eil-el-Kabir.
In his Sallah message, Saraki, who urged Nigerians to make the fear of God the foundation for their lives, added that the Eid-el- Kabir festival symbolised the fear of Allah and the desire of man to always comply with the wish of his creator as exemplified by Prophet Ibrahim.
Saraki further noted that Nigerians cannot achieve much with unnecessary factions and disharmony. “With fear of Allah, mutual respect and love, we will tolerate one another, work together and be able to harness our abundant resources as a progressive nation.
We cannot achieve much with unnecessary factions and disharmony. What Nigerians need now is to move forward with the present change era,” he said. Saraki, who also called on all Nigerians to imbibe the spirit of love, tolerance and mutual respect added that these virtues are the panacea to move the nation forward.
