The Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management, and Social Development Hajiya Sadiya Umar Farouq has urged Nigerians to reflect on the reason for the season as Muslims celebrate this year’s Eid-El-Kabir.
In a statement, Hajiya Sadiya called for prayers to unite the country and reduce humanitarian crises including internal displacement, hunger, killings, and terrorism.
While felicitating with the Muslim faithful, she preached love for one another, sacrifice for the nation, peace, love, and kindness as advocated by the Prophet Muhammed.
“Let us continue to pray for the unity of the country especially the vulnerable among us. May Allah grants us peace as we celebrate Eid and may we witness more celebrations as a united nation”, Umar Farouq said.
The Minister said a peaceful Nigeria will reduce the number of displaced and vulnerable people in the country.
She promised that the government would continue to do everything within its power to ensure a country that all Nigerians will be proud of.
