As Muslims across the world mark this year’s Eid el-Kabir today, the Rector, Federal Polytechnic Bida, Dr. Abubakar Abdul Dzukogi, has asked Muslims to remain tolerant and peaceful with people from all walks of life.
The Rector who also wished Muslims a greater prosperity and unity at this festival, and in the time ahead, also advised Muslims to fully imbibe the virtues of tolerance, sacrifice, and patience, adding that citizens should always support any efforts by government and non-governmental organizations that support the everlasting peace, unity and security of Nigeria and the whole world.
In his Sallah message issued by his Senior Special Assistant (SSA) on Media and Communications, Abdulkadir Abdullahi Yahaya, the Rector also noted that performing the various acts of righteousness will assist in promoting peace, brotherhood and development in all ramifications.
Dr. Dzukogi therefore called on all Nigerians to support government’s efforts at tackling security challenges as he acknowledged the efforts of President Muhammadu Buhari in building an egalitarian nation of “our pride.”
The Rector also urged Muslims and non-Muslims alike to shun bitterness, divisive tactics and other vices for the greater good of the country and humanity.
“Actually, this season, once again offers us the opportunity to remain steadfast and work together as Muslims and Christians for the greater good of our nation.
We must use this season of Eidil-kabir to offer more impactful sacrifices that serve as catalysts for faster development initiatives in our country.” the Rector further stated
