The Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Ekiti State Council has congratulated members who are Muslims in the state on the celebration of this year’s Eid-El-Kabir.
In a press statement made available to newsen in Ado-Ekiti, the Union Chairman, Lion Rotimi Ojomoyela and the Secretary, comrade Kayode Babatuyi thanked Allah for another opportunity to witness the celebration which is significant in Islamic religion.
The Union advised adherent of Islam to be obedient, cultivate the habit of giving and extending hands of fellowship to other people, particularly the less privileged as commanded by Prophet Mohammed.
It is when we are obedient and give to others that we can receive from Allah, as He gave Prophet Ibrahim a ram in replacement of his only son he wanted to sacrifice to God.
It also enjoined them to be moderate in the celebration and desist from wastefulness and act of lawlessness.
NUJ, therefore, appealed to those at the helms of affairs to prioritize the welfare of citizens, because people are going through difficult situations in the country.
