The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Caucus Leader in the House of Representatives, Hon. Kingsley Chinda, has urged Muslim faithful to use this year’s celebration to continue to pray for the Spirit of wisdom, justice and directions for the country’s leaders.
Rep Chinda who disclosed this in a statement he made available to newsmen in Abuja yesterday, said there is a need for God to bestowed Wisdom on the Nigerian Leaders, for the unity, peace and progress of the dear county.
He said “For myself and on behalf of Members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) caucus, House of Representatives, I join well meaning Nigerians to felicitate with Muslim faithfuls across the globe, particularly those in Nigeria, on the occasion of this year’s Eid Mubarak celebration.
“I heartily rejoice with our Muslim brethren and urge them to use this special occasion to continue to exhibit the spirit of tolerance, sacrifice, selflessness, mutual love and peaceful coexistence with others.
“I also urge that this year’s celebration should further afford our Muslim brethren the opportunity to continue to pray for wisdom and for the spirit of justice to be bestowed on our Leaders, and for the unity, peace and progress of our dear county, built on just, fair and egalitarian principles.
“This is in view of the numerous challenges facing us as a people, including several killings, kidnappings and the general state of insecurity across the county, coupled with the intractable crisis of leadership, rudderless economy, seeming divisive tendencies occasioned by invidious governmental policies and actions, which have more than ever polarized and weakened our collective drive and nationalist spirit.
“Equally, of concern is the need for everyone to continue to stay safe and help stop the spread of the dreaded Corona virus (Covid-19) global pandemic which since early 2020 has continued to ravage several countries of the world, including our dear Nigeria.
“I am confident that God is on our side and with us playing our individual and collective selfless and pathrotic roles, we shall triumph in the end.
“Once again, congratulations and Happy Eid Mubarak to our Muslim brethren”.
