Eid-el-Kabir Message From Senator ‘Gbenga Ashafa

Please read this message before you stat eating eeeeh....



A TIME TO EMBRACE PEACE FOR NATIONAL DEVELOPMENT (An Eid-el-Kabir message from Senator ‘Gbenga Ashafa, representing the good people of Lagos East Senatorial District)

Dear Good People of Lagos East Senatorial District and fellow Nigerians,


I pray for you all, from my heart - that the goodness and love of Allah the Most Beneficent and Most Merciful will guide you and keep you safe even as we commence the celebration of this year’s Sallah.



I join all the Muslim ummah in this very significant Islamic celebration. Islam is a religion of peace and as we make merry, we should continue to let this knowledge guide our every behaviour and speech. The Eid-el-Kabir period gives us another opportunity to be moderate in words and deeds and to reflect on the salient virtues and values of Islam.



We must collectively eschew violence, intolerance, selfishness and uttering of unguarded comments, which are capable of causing disaffection with our neighbors irrespective of tribe, language and creed or heating up the polity. Rather let us show love to one another through our words and deeds. As it is only in an atmosphere of peace that National Development can take place.



In the spirit of giving and gratitude, let us all remember to extend invitations to our neighbours to partake in the blessings of the season. It is chronicled that during Eid-el-Kabir, the servant of God sacrificed two rams, one for his family and the other for the people in the community.



As the year gradually approaches its final months, may unity, faith, peace and progress always find root amongst us as Nigerians. May the blessings of Almighty Allah remain with you and yours.



Barka de Sallah!
