Katsina State governor, Aminu Masari, has called on Muslim faithful to make more sacrifice, obey and support leaders of the nation to move Nigeria forward.
Masari made the call in his Eid-el-Kabir message in Katsina, yesterday.
“Religious occasions were moments which citizens should use for both merriment and sober reflection for the advancement of the society.
“Eid-el-Kabir signifies sacrifice and unquestioned obedience to the command of Allah by the Prophet Abraham.
“For us in Nigeria, the significance of the lesson of the occasion come at a time when our nation requires from each of us the twin virtues of sacrifice and obedience.
“There is no doubt that Nigeria is facing serious challenges which President Muhammadu Buhari is taking steps to address,’’ he said.
The governor said that the administration meant well for all Nigerians and called on them to continue to support the leadership to get the country out of those problems.
“We must not allow differences in religion, region and ethnicity to be used to divide us.
“We must resist, reject and renounce politics of negative instincts and put a distance between us and the proponents and promoters of such divisive tendencies in the interest of the nation,’’ Masari said.
He urged Nigerians to continue to put the nation above other personal considerations in order to have a strong nation.
