The immediate former governor of Ekiti State, Dr Kayode Feyemi, has urged Nigerians to work together to help the country overcome its “serious challenges of development.”
In his Salah message to Nigerians on Tuesday, as contained in a statement issued by the media aide to the former governor, Ahmed Sajoh, Fayemi said Nigeria is at a critical point where “collaborative efforts” must be employed to achieve a better country for all.
The former governor however urged Muslims to extend the lessons of the celebration beyond the festivity and “embody the values of sacrifice, love, and peace.”
The statement reads:
“At this point, more than at any other time in our country’s history, we require the collaborative efforts of all Nigerians working together to overcome our serious challenges of development.
“It is my hope and prayers that our Muslim brothers and sisters, in the spirit of the salah celebrations, will work across faith and community lines to help our country achieve the goals of peace, unity, and other developmental targets.
“And these lessons learned during the Eid-el-Kabir should extend beyond the festival and apply to our lives daily as we embody the values of sacrifice, love, and peace,” he emphasised.”
