Eid El-Kabir: PDP Urges Nigerians To Rededicate To God
BEVERLY HILLS, October 03, (THEWILL) - The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has charged Nigerians to use the occasion of this year's Eid El- Kabir to reflect on the virtue of faith and total submission to the will of the Almighty God as exemplified by Prophet Ibrahim who was willing to sacrifice his only son, Ishmael in obedience to God's command.
The party, in a goodwill message signed by the National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh, on Friday said the Eid El-Kabir grants Nigerians a great opportunity to rededicate themselves to God by rekindling the spirit of sacrifice, patience and love.
'Indeed, the Eid El-Kabir teaches great lessons in faith in the Almighty God who, in His infinite wisdom destined Nigeria as one united, indivisible and prosperous nation where the welfare, freedom and happiness of all citizens are guaranteed.
'We therefore urge all Nigerians to keep hope alive, pray and work towards the greatness of our dear nation. We must rededicate ourselves to the values that unite and strengthen us as a people and resist all vices that seek to weaken and tear us apart,' the PDP said.
The party further reiterated its commitment to the unity and prosperity of Nigeria. It assured that it will not only remain steadfast to guaranteeing a free and democratic society in which the powers and actions of government are lawful but also a nation where the welfare and prosperity of the people are assured through sound policies and rapid infrastructural development in line with its ideology and visions of its founding fathers.
The party wished all Nigerians a happy Eid El- Kabir while urging them to continue to consider the less-privileged at all times.
