EID-EL-KABIR: SENATOR KAITA GREETS MUSLIMS, TASKED THEM ON NATIONAL UNITY AND COHESION.
Distinguished Senator Ahmad Babba-Kaita representing Katsina North Senatorial District, has rejoiced with his constituents, the good people of Katsina state and Nigerians on the Eid-el-Kabir celebrations.
In his message marking the joyous Muslim occasion, Senator Kaita urges Muslims across the country to promote peace, love and tolerance among one another in order to consolidate on the nation’s unity.
“Today, our country and Katsina state in particular is passing through a difficult time occasioned by banditry, kidnapping and general threats to our corporate existence as a nation by actions of some undesirable elements. We must all rise up to defend this country, at all cost” He charged.
Reflecting on the current division in the country, Kaita argues that diversity was never the cause of Nigeria’s problems, rather the attitude of citizens toward one another, hence the need for Muslims to share the bounties that come with the festival with fellow citizens irrespective of their faith or ethnic affiliation.
The Katsina senator remarks that religious festival such as Eid-el-Kabir should be used as a means to advance peaceful co-existence, love and harmony among the people.
