The Cross River DG of Due Process and Price Intelligence, Alphonsus Ogar Eba Esq. has felicitated with the Muslim community on the occasion of this year’s Eld-il-kabir calling for tolerance and peaceful communal living. This is contained in a message obtained by genuinereports. See excerpt below:
My dear Muslim friends and families,
On this occasion of the 2020 Eid-il-Kabir, the season of love, giving and great Joy, I extend to you my warmest regards and good wishes of a joyous celebration.
The season, as we all know, is symbolic of the Islamic injunction of sacrificial giving and total submission to The Almighty Allah by whose grace we have survived the health challenges to celebrate yet another Eid-il-Kabir in spite of all the tribulations that have besieged the world around us in recent times.
It is,therefore, a period to spare a thought about our worldly pursuits and ambitions in relation to our societal values bearing in mind that we are only human and life is all vanity.
As we celebrate today,my brothers and sisters in Islam, let us reflect on those societal values that remind us of our common humanity.
Let us pray and ask The Almighty Allah to restore to us those values that remind us that we must love our neighbours as ourselves and that our real values are not reflected in what we have but how much we have touched the lives of those around us, especially those put under our care.
As a Government that is resolved to serve you, the Governor Ayade-led government will continue to create an enabling environment for business and commerce to thrive bearing in mind that it is only in a peaceful and secure environment that prosperity can be achieved.
I urge you, therefore, to extend a hand of cooperation to the Government and to one another so that together we can achieve our collective dream of an industrialized state.
As we celebrate this year’s Eid-il-kabir, I wish all Muslims a joyous celebration and showers of Allah’s blessings.
I also wish that Allah’s blessings light up the path and lead to happiness, peace and success.
May Allah accept our good deeds, forgive our wrongs and sins, and ease the suffering of all people around the globe.
May we live long to witness next year’s Eid-il-Kabir in peace and prosperity.
