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

In a Special Eid el Kabir message issued in Awka on Thursday, Governor Obiano observed that the celebration of this year’s Eid-el Kabir offers Nigerians a chance to strengthen the bonds of national unity and deepen the current democratic project.

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 and rancorous disagreements that have dogged the country from Independence would have been avoided.

According to him, “Nigerians should love one another, show greater forbearance and demonstrate a deep fear of God in all their ways. That is the way to attract the abundance of God’s blessings. Those are the virtues that exult a nation.”

The governor also exhorted Nigerian Muslims to continue to remember Nigeria in their prayers, pointing out that prayer is the key to move God to acts of mercy and grace so amazing.
