Most Distinguished Senator Peter Onyelukachukwu Nwaoboshi (SPON),felicitated with Muslim faithful on this year’s celebration of Eid-el-Kabir and urged Nigerians to make the fear of God the foundation for their lives.

In a Sallah message by his SPON Media in Ibusa, to commemorate the Eid-el-Kabir, he said the Eid-el-Kabir festival symbolised the fear of Allah and the desire of man to always comply with the wish of his creator as exemplified by Prophet Ibrahim.

He noted that with the fear of Allah, mutual respect and love, “we will tolerate one another, work together and be able to harness our abundant resources as a progressive nation. We cannot achieve much with unnecessary factions and disharmony. What Nigerians need now is to move forward with the present change era.”

He also called on all Nigerians to imbibe the spirit of love, tolerance and mutual respect, adding that these virtues were the panacea to move the nation forward.
Nwaoboshi said: “We have herculean tasks to address. Our army of unemployed graduates and youths are hovering on the street. Insecurity is threatening the peace and social development of our dear nation, quality health care services and economic buoyancy are major challenges that require urgent attention.
“I am very optimistic that with our collective efforts, these challenges are surmountable and we will soon overcome.” Nwaoboshi stated.

Senator Nwaoboshi however used the occasion to call on all arms of government not to rest on their oars in the onerous task of building a formidable nation where all Nigerians will live in peace and prosperity.

Senator Nwaoboshi charged Muslims to continue to pray for the government, the Military and other agencies in the fight against insurgency, adding that the peace and socio-economic development of our nation remain paramount.

He also urge our country­men and women to demonstrate faith by ensuring that those who are privileged come to the aid of the less privileged ones and ensure that many people across the country can celebrate this Sallah in a joyous mood and with food in their households,” he stated.

He said: “All of us should continue to live in peace irrespective of our religious differences and ethnic orientation. We must cement the bond of unity in the nation by reaching out to one another in love.

“Our old ways will not lead to the accomplishment of the vision of our founding fathers; we must therefore, get together immediately and let the world know that Nigeria is ready to take its rightful place in the comity of nations.”
