Obiano Felicitates with Muslims on Eid-el Fitri



The governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano has called on
Muslim faithful and all Nigerians to imbibe the virtues of love,
tolerance and harmony as advocated by the teachings of Prophet
Mohammed to attain the nation’s quest for greater unity and
brotherhood.

In a Special Message issued in Awka on Monday, Governor Obiano
observed that the celebration of this year’s Eid-el Fitri offers
Nigerians a chance to strengthen the bonds of national unity and build
a prosperous country.

The Statement signed by James Eze, Senior Special Assistant to the
governor on Media further pointed out that if Nigerians were to allow
the teachings of the Holy prophet to guide their general conduct and
interface with one another, most of the conflicts that had blighted
the country in recent times would have been averted.

According to him, “Nigerians should love one another, show greater
forbearance and demonstrate a deep fear of God in all their way. Those
are the virtues that exalt a nation.”

The governor also exhorted Nigerian Muslims to continue to uphold
Nigeria in their prayers, pointing out that prayer is the key to
attract God’s blessings.
