The Speaker of the Edo State House of Assembly, Rt.Hon. Marcus Onobun has felicitated with Muslim faithful on the Eid-el-Kabir celebration.
In a message he sent to the Muslim faithful through his Media Assistant, Ambassador Ayemere Michael, the number one lawmaker in Edo State called on them to exhibit virtues of togetherness, love and tolerance in all they do.
He averred that these are some of the virtues that are associated with Prophet Mohammed as explained in the glorious Quran.
Hon. Onobun charged Muslims to ensure that they do a deep reflection on the current situation in the country and engage in prayers to see us survive whatever evil people are trying to postulate as it relates to Nigeria’s destiny as a nation.
According to him “the unity of the different units that make up the country will go a long way in defining the future of Africa and indeed the black race considering that a large percentage of blacks around the world are Nigerians.”
Concluding his message, Hon. Onobun urged the Muslim faithful to always be ready to offer their contribution to the developmental strides of the fatherland to enable the country meet up with modern trends.
He is of the view that this will surely be defined as a gain for all and sundry just as it will always be a reference point in years to come.
