It said it was important for all Nigerians to imbibe and adopt the spirit of selfless life for the purpose of moving the nation forward.
National President of PFN, Reverend Felix Omobude, who stated this in his Sallah Message, urged the Muslim faithful to demonstrate the virtues of love and sacrifice which are the hallmarks of the Eid-El-Kabir festival.
Dr. Omobude’s Sallah message, which was contained in a press statement endorsed by his media aide, Deacon Ralph Okhiria, enjoined the adherents of Islam to be obedient to God by showing love towards one another.
According to the statement, “The two holy books (the Bible and the Koran) talk about sacrifice. Therefore, we should be ready at all times to sacrifice for one another, irrespective of our religious affiliations, and also to make the desired sacrifices for the peace, growth and development of Nigeria.
“With fervent prayer and love, Nigerians can live together in peace as brothers and sisters, and contribute to the progress and unity of the country.
“It is important for all Nigerians to imbibe and adopt a spirit of living a selfless life for the purpose of moving our great nation forward.”
