Eid-el-Kabir: Nasarawa guber aspirant urges special prayers against hate speech


Alhaji Dauda Kigbu, a gubernatorial aspirant of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Nasarawa State, has called for special prayers against hate speeches to promote national peace, unity and progress.
Kigbu made the appeal in a statement on Tuesday in Keffi in his message to mark this year’s Eid-el-Kabir celebration.
He also enjoined political, traditional and religious leaders to preach the message of peace to their followers for national development.
“Let us use the Eid-El-Kabir celebration to continue to pray fervently for peace and progress of the country as well as for successful conduct of 2019 general election.
“Let’s use this Sallah period to preach against hate speeches as it is inimical to societal development.
“It is only when we shun hate speeches, stay in peace and tolerate one another that there will be speedy development in the country,” he said.
Besides, Kigbu enjoined Muslims to use the festive occasion to support the less privileged to improve on their standard of living as well as given them a sense of belonging.
He felicitated with the Muslim community on the event and prayed Allah to grant Nigerians and the country more prosperity.
He, however, urged the Muslim Ummah to also use the period to reconcile with God and their fellow human beings to enhance love and harmony for the benefit of the nation. (NAN)
