Eid-el-Kabir: Uzodimma charges Muslim worshipers with love

By Ugonne Uzoma

Governor Hope Uzodimma of Imo urged the country’s Muslim worshipers to embrace love, peace and unity as they celebrate the holiday of Eid-al-Kabir.

Uzodimma said this in a statement signed by his chief press secretary, Mr. Oguwike Nwachuk, on Monday in Owerri.

He said that imbibing the spirit of love, peace, kindness, unity and sacrifice would go a long way in showing their understanding of what Prophet Muhammad stood for.

The governor further urged Muslims to pray for peace, unity, love, prosperity, stability and security in the country.

He added that the country needed more prayers at this time than ever before due to the threat to its peace and stability by the challenges posed by the insecurity.

Uzodimma also congratulated President Muhammadu Buhari for his outstanding commitment to the security of Nigeria through social investment programs that meet the needs of the population.

He encouraged Muslim worshipers to pray for President Buhari as well, noting that he was taking steps to improve infrastructure development and social welfare.

The governor called on them to remember to follow all COVID-19 pandemic protocols during the festivities to curb its spread.

He also urged the privileged to extend their charity to vulnerable people during the celebration. (NAN) ()
