By Mohammed Baba Busu

Alhaji Muhammad Idris-Malagi, the Chairman and Publisher of Blue Print Newspaper, has called on Muslims to use the Eid-el-Kabir celebration to pray fervently for the peace and unity of Nigeria.

In his Sallah message at the Eid praying ground in Malagi, Gbako Local Government, Area, Niger State on Tuesday, the Chairman expressed optimism that Nigeria would be the ultimate beneficiary of the spiritual lessons from the Sallah celebration.

He said with prayers and fear of Allah, peaceful coexistence, mutual respect, and love, Nigerians would tolerate one another, work together and be able to harness the abundant resources as a progressive nation.

The APC Gubernatorial Aspirant in Niger also called on the citizens to build bridges of brotherhood to harness the benefits of earthly life and the ultimate purpose of the nation’s unity.

Malagi also appealed to Muslims to emulate Prophet Ibrahim’s virtues of sacrifice, obedience, and submissiveness to the will of Allah, to be successful in life.

“Today’s celebration is a commemoration of total submissiveness and obedience to the will of Allah, as exemplified by Prophets Ibrahim and Ismail.

The chairman advised Muslims to shun societal ills and always endeavour to do good, for the betterment of all.

He implored the Muslim Ummah in the state and country at large to reflect on the significance of the celebration, which borders on encouraging piety, sacrifice, and love.

The highly respected politician noted that without piety, sacrifice, and love, no state or society could advance.

”The significance of the season should be beyond the festivities but the real essence is to encourage piety, total commitment to Allah, self-discipline, and sacrifice, ’’ he said.

Malagi also admonished Nigerians to strive to live in peace with each other, irrespective of religious, political, cultural, and ethnic affinity.

According to him: “We should also continue to be our brothers’ keepers, to collectively bolster peace, unity and even socioeconomic development of the country.

“The Almighty Allah has created us in different ways, with varying potentials and faiths, cultures and ethnicities.

“But, our rich diversities should serve as our formidable unifying factors and not dividing ones. The Almighty Allah has not made a mistake by creating us together in Nigeria.”

The chairman further appealed to Nigerians to shun all acts capable of breaching peace and unity.

“Peace is the veritable tool of national development and without it, no nation could prosper to greater heights.

Malagi also charged the people of the area to send their children to school to acquire both western and Islam knowledge.
