Governor Chukwuma Soludo has congratulated the Muslim Community in Nigeria on the occasion of the Eid-el-Fitr celebration.
In a message issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Christian Aburime, Soludo prayed that the sacrifices and supplications made in the holy month of Ramadan would engender progress, peace and unity in Anambra and the nation.
He called on all Muslim faithful to use the occasion of the celebration of Eid-el-Fitr to re-dedicate their lives, pray for peace and unity, as well as continue to live in harmony in their various communities across the nation.
“Gov. Soludo also heartily rejoices with all Muslims in Anambra, across the country and the entire world on the successful completion of the 30-day fast, in total submission and obedience to the Almighty Allah.
According to him, religion must not divide the country, rather it should be instrumental to the development of the society.
“When the soul departs the physical body and journeys into the spiritual world, what counts at that time, is only our character towards ourselves and others while we lived on earth.
“Hate, anger, fighting and killing each other based on religion is wrong and must be condemned by men of goodwill.
“To build a nation where peace and justice shall reign, we must first of all admit that we all are one, and that no tribe or religion is superior or inferior to the other,” he said.
