In line with the directives of our digital Governor of cross river State Sen Ben Ayade to observe social distancing and wearing of face mask at the praying ground
I urged Muslims to rededicate themselves to their Creator and pray for the country during this period of Eid-el-Kabir.
I said the need for prayers became more pressing at this time that the coronavirus pandemic is ravaging the world, including Nigeria.
I also said with fervent prayers, Nigeria would be able to surmount the numerous challenges bedevilling the country, including insecurity.
In a Sallah message by my office of non indigene affairs also urged Nigerians, irrespective of their differences, to embrace one another and be united for the progress of the country.
I called on religious leaders to preach unity and peaceful coexistence among the citizens at this time and always.
I further urged Muslims to imbibe the virtues of selflessness, generosity, brotherliness and accommodating nature of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW).
I used the opportunity to call on leaders to keep their contracts with the Nigerian people as that is the only way they can make meaningful impact in the lives of the citizens.
