Eid el-Kabir: Dogara sues for unity, tolerance



Dogara calls for caution in prosecution of CJN

Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr Yakubu Dogara, has admonished Muslim faithful to use the Eid-el Kabir festival to promote unity and tolerance, which are crucial for peaceful coexistence.

The Speaker in a statement on Thursday in Abuja by Mr Turaki Hassan, his Special Adviser on Media and Public Affairs, said that Nigeria could only fulfill its great potential if the citizens continued to promote unity, peace, security and stability.

According to the Speaker, there is a need to show greater respect and love for one another.

“This is a moment for sober reflections.

“I enjoin you to use the period to uphold the spiritual benefit of the celebration by extending a hand of friendship and solidarity across all divides.”

“Also imbibe the spirit of sacrifice and obedience to the higher authority as exemplified by prophet Ibrahim and upheld by prophet Mohammed,” he added.

While wishing the Muslim faithful a blessed and peaceful Eid el-Kabir celebration, Dogara reiterated his call for sustained prayers for the leadership of the country at all levels.

“This is an opportunity for us to reflect and pray for our nation, and to pray for our dear president for God’s guidance and good health.

“And pray for all those in leadership positions so that God in his infinite mercy will continue to guide them as they steer the affairs of the country,” the Speaker said.
