Eminent Businessman and Former APGA guber aspirant in Abia State, Chief Dr. Emeka Charles Kalu, have called on all Nigerians especially Muslims to embrace peace in the spirit of Salah and Ramadan.
In a message to Muslims signed by his Media Aide, Comrade Sunny Okpo Idika, Chief Kalu urged Muslim faithfuls to sustain the virtues learnt during Ramadan in their everyday life, saying all Nigerians should remain steadfast and prayerful in the face of daunting socio-economic challenges.
He said: “On this blessed occasion, I rejoice with the Nigerian Muslims and wish them a hitch-free Sallah celebration.
I equally urge them to carry the lessons of the Holy month of Ramadan beyond the month by remaining a people who forgive and eschew rancour and bitterness, while also remaining just and sincere in their dealings with fellow Nigerians.
Kalu called on Nigeria’s Muslims Umah to use the occasion of this year’s Eid- El -Fitr to pray for divine intervention in the face of various forms of difficulties confronting the nation.
“As Nigerians, we must continue to strengthen the spirit of oneness, regardless of religious, ethnic, regional, and political diversities, for that is the only way to surmount our intimidatingly impressive challenges and build a greater Nigeria.
“In particular, he renewed his call for “religious tolerance among Muslims because for the nation to develop and make meaningful progress, both Muslims and Christians must appreciate each other as well as live together as brothers and sisters.”
Kalu , who described Nigeria as a blessed nation, called on Muslims and Nigerians in general to “pray fervently for the Federal Government , the States and Local Governments to overcome the difficult times and put smiles back on the faces of Nigerians.”
