The Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Mudashiru Obasa, has called on Nigerians, particularly Muslims, to imbibe the spirit of love and sacrifice for one another to replicate the lessons derived from the celebration of the Eid-l-Kabir.
According to the Lagos Speaker, love and sacrifice for one another are essential ingredients for nation building.
The Speaker in his Sallah message to the nation signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Musbau Rasak,stated that Nigerians should eschew bitterness and violence among themselves.
“We should imbibe the spirit of love for one another as symbolised in the celebration of the Eid-l-Kabir. We should guard utterances to one another and endeavour to say things that will promote love and unity among ourselves,” he said.
Obasa also urged Nigerians to imbibe the spirit of sacrifice as an act that can enhance unity and love among themselves.
The Lagos Assembly Speaker also admonished Nigerians to always remain vigilant all the time and to report promptly any utterance that can cause breach of peace in the country.
He also praised Nigerians for the support accorded the All Progressives Congress (APC) administration at both state and national levels.
“We will always seek for your prayer, support and cooperation and I want to assure Nigerians that the APC administration at the centre and in Lagos will continue to put in place programmes and policies that will enhance the standard of living of our people and improve their welfare,” the Lagos Assembly Speaker said.
While congratulating Nigerians, particularly Muslims, on the celebration of the Eid-l-Kabir, Rt. Hon. Obasa urged them to celebrate in peace and tranquility while radiating love and kindness among themselves.
