Ogbomoso North House of Assembly hopeful, Hon Dr Paul Ajagbe has congratulated Nigerian Muslims and other faithful across the world on the occasion of the Eid-el-Kabir celebration.
A statement from the medical practitioner said, “as we celebrate Allah’s benevolence, it is important for us to pause and reflect on the significance of this celebration, which highlights the need for sacrifice and the benefits thereof.
“By his willingness to sacrifice his son as commanded by Allah, Prophet Ibrahim (peace be upon him) demonstrated the need for us to be willing to make sacrifices for our desired goals. This lesson couldn’t have been more timely as the present situation in the country is such that calls for sacrifices on the part of all Nigerians but especially by those in positions of responsibility becomes imperative.
“It also calls for prayers for divine intervention and God’s guidance for the Governor of Oyo state Engr Seyi Makinde and all our leders in Ogbomosoland.
“I am confident that with prayers and the needed sacrifices, Allah will show us mercy and intervene to solve our current security challenges, the way he solved our economic challenges through the people’s governor.
“I therefore wish our Muslim brothers and, indeed, all Nigerians, happy Eid-el-Kabir.
