Ekweremadu felicitated with Muslims on Eid-el-Kabir

Former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu has felicitated with Muslims in Nigeria as they prepare to celebrate this year's Eid-el-Kabir.

In a statement issued, Ekweremadu urged them to pray for the peace, unity and security of the country.

He also called on the Federal Government to stop the incessant killings going on in Nigeria.

“I felicitate with our Muslim brothers and sisters on this occasion of Eid-El-Kabir. The occasion calls for rededication to the fine principles of sacrifice, justice, and equity as exemplified by the Prophet and without which no nation can ever make any progress.

“It is also not lost on us that this is a very dire time for Nigeria, as our Muslim brethren and the nation celebrate Sallah in a state of grave apprehension, with many of them displaced by the worsening insecurity. This Sallah, therefore, serves as an opportunity to offer special prayers for the peace, unity, prosperity, and security of our country.

“I equally call on the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, President Muhammadu Buhari, to take every necessary and urgent step to arrest this parlous situation where Boko Haram and allied insurgents, bandits, criminal aliens, kidnappers, and all manners of predatory elements have field days killing civilians and even men of the armed forces alike without corresponding or greater consequences”, he said.
