Eid El Kabir: Kogi Water Resources Commissioner Felicitates With Muslims, Calls For Unity Amongst Kogites.

 

The Kogi State Commissioner For Water Resources, Engr Yahaya MD Farouk has called for Peace, reconciliation, sacrifice as Muslims celebrate this year’s Eid El Kabir celebration.

The Commissioner in message issued to Newsmen in Lokoja, called for reconciliation, peaceful co-existence amongst the people as well as sacrifice to reflect on the lessons of the festival and the teachings of the doctrine of Islamic faith, which was premised on sacrifice and peace.

The Commissioner called on Kogites, particularly the residents of Lokoja to “live in peace and love and eschew all forms of violence, strife, insecurity, corruption, indiscipline, disrespect for constituted authority, and all forms of criminality and social vices.

“All Kogites must love one another and the State. At all times, we should put the State and nation first before self. As we have no other State or nation which we can rightly call our own.

It therefore behoves us all to join hands with the administration of Gov Usman Ahmed Ododo to move the State forward and actualize the dreams of the founding fathers of our dear State in our life time.”

The Commissioner congratulated Muslim faithful, especially those residents in Lokoja as they mark this year’s Eid-el-Kabir, specifically recalled the story of Prophet Ibrahim’s attempt to sacrifice his only son, which culminated into the celebration of Eid-al-Adha to commemorate his (Ibrahim or Abraham) willingness to follow Allah’s (God’s) command to sacrifice his son.

Engr. Farouk appealed for greater unity, love and peaceful co-existence among Kogites as well as total support for the State Government as it strives to improve their well being, however emphasised that the occasion should be used to foster unity by making exemplified sacrifice amongst all in the spirit of the sacrifice made by Prophet Ibrahim culminating into the celebration of Eid-el-Kabir.
