Eid-ul-Adha: Kwara Governor greets, tasks Muslim faithful on sacrifice

Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq has felicitated with the Muslim community on the occasion of Eid-ul-Adha (feast of sacrifice) celebration, calling on the faithful to spend the holiday reflecting on the lessons of the season.

“The message of this season is that of sacrifice, selflessness, and total submission to the will of God as exemplified by not just Prophet Ibrahim, the father of all Abrahamaic faiths, but also Prophet Muhammad. As faithful, it is not enough to offer animals in sacrifice. We are in fact required to translate these qualities to our day-to-day living,” the Governor said in a Sallah message signed by his spokesman, Rafiu Ajakaye.

“We therefore call on all Kwarans to stay the course with us as we get down to the task of fixing our state. This definitely requires all of us to make sacrifice. It might also require us to adopt a new paradigm and forgo momentary gains for the larger interest of our state, especially the generations yet unborn.”

The Governor prayed to God to grant everyone a blessed Eid.

AbdulRazaq urged celebrants to think safety and modesty at all time, calling on all road users to respect speed limit and traffic signs to avoid accident.
