Eid-el-Adha: Humanitarian minister congratulates Muslims, calls for peaceful coexistence


Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development Sadiya Umar Farouq urged the Muslim faithful in Nigeria to reflect on the reasons for the Eid Al-Adha celebration.

The Minister made the call during the celebration of this year’s Eid Al-Adha.

While felicitating with the Muslim faithful, she indulged Nigerians to imbibe the spirit of love and tolerance towards one another.

She pleads with Muslims to adopt the virtues of peace, love and kindness as advocated by the Prophet Muhammed.

“Let us continue to pray for the unity of the country especially the vulnerable among us. May Allah grant us peace as we celebrate Eid and may we witness more celebrations as a united nation,”

Farouq called for prayers to unite the country and reduce humanitarian crises including the rising number of widows, orphans and displaced persons.

She also said the unity of Nigerians will put an end to hunger, killings and terrorism, and foster a peaceful Nigeria, which will reduce the number of displaced and vulnerable people in the country.

“If we spend less on IDPs and victims of communal clashes, cattle rustlings or banditry, Government can channel such funds to other capital projects,”

She also assured citizens of the Nigerian’s government willingness to continue to provide and safeguard the well-being of Nigerians.
