Peterside greets Muslims at Id el kabir, calls for peace, sacrifice
Dr. Dakuku Peterside, governorship candidate of the All Progressives
Congress, APC in Rivers State in the April election has extended his
warm wishes to Muslims as
they mark the Id el Kabir celebration.
Peterside who spoke in Abuja also called on Muslims and Nigerians
generally to work for the peace and progress of the nation. He called on
Rivers State Muslims to be hopeful of better days, describing the current challenges as temporary.
As the world marks Id el Kabir, I wish to use this medium to wish my
Muslim brothers and friends the very best as they celebrate.
‘Id el Kabir is firmly rooted in sacrifice, which for me is very
significant. Therefore, as we mark this important season, may we all
work consciously towards a better and greater world. ‘Nigeria is today
undergoing change. But the interesting part of this new reality is that
there is agreement among Nigerians across the country that we are better
today than we were yesterday.
“In less than four months, we
can all see noticeable improvements in some areas of our national life.
Our soldiers fighting insurgency are proving once again that heroism is
not a foreign concept, our institutions are undergoing metamorphosis
and there is a general feeling of hope and expectation across the land.
“As we celebrate, we must remember that we have a duty to
contribute and sustain this new air of freedom and optimism in the land.
“We also have a duty as we mark thisday to remember our less
fortunate brothers and sisters who are today refugees in their own
country. The Internally Displaced Persons are a part of us and there
could not have been a better time to remember them. Let us therefore
spare a thought for them as we celebrate. Happy Id el Kabir”.
