By Babatunde Adegunju

The Vice-Chairman, Senate Committee on Lands, Housing and Urban Development, Senator Gbenga Bareehu Ashafa has enjoined all Muslim Brothers and Sisters to see this year's eid-el-kabir celebration as another good opportunity to reflect on their spiritual lives, pray for themselves, others and the nation at large.

Ashafa said that as the celebration goes on, we should all reflect on the ideals of peaceful coexistence, which all religions preach and avoid violence at all times and in all places.

He added that “this period reminds us to be faithful to the Almighty God and live according to His dictates and also pray fervently for our Nation at this trying time so that Nigeria will regain its pride of place among the comity of nations".
