Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege has called on Muslims to use the period of Eid el-Kabir to pray for Nigeria.
He urged the Muslims to pray for the country so as to overcome its present challenges.
Naija News understands that the Deputy Senate President made this known in his Sallah message to Muslims in the country.
Omo-Agege in his message urged Nigerians to be tolerant and continue to work for peace, unity and progress of the country.
The senator made this known in a statement signed by his Special Adviser, Media and Publicity, Yomi Odunuga where he expressed the readiness of the 9th National Assembly to work with the Muhammadu Buhari-led administration to ensure that Nigerians enjoy the dividends of democracy by actualising all the programmes in the All Progressives Congress’s Next Level Agenda.
In his words he said; “As Nigerian Muslims join the rest of the world to celebrate the Eid el-Kabir festivities, I rejoice with them and wish them a hitch-free Sallah celebration.
“We must continue to strengthen the spirit of oneness, regardless of religious, ethnic, regional, and political diversities, for that is the only way to build a greater Nigeria.”
