1 10


Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Anyone who looks after and works for a widow and a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah?s cause, or like a person who fasts during the day and prays all night. (Bukhari)

Senatorial aspirant under the platform of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the forthcoming Cross River North Senatorial By-election, Dr Stephen Odey, Friday, joined Muslim faithful to celebrate Eid-el Kabir.

Odey in a statement on Sallah signed by himself said the Eid-el Kabir festival came at a time when Nigerians are fast losing the spirit of sacrifice and selflessness in service to the growth and development of the nation.

He also pointed out that the celebration should be with sober reflection and how to promote peace and unity of the country by all Nigerians contributing selflessly towards a peaceful co-existence, love and tolerance.

He is currently Chairman, Cross River State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB).

“It is a season that calls for sober reflection on the ideals of the celebration of Eid El Kabir, which centers on sacrifice, selflessness and service for the good of humanity.

“We as Nigerians should see the need to sacrifice for a peaceful and united country, and throw away all forms of injustice, and promote tolerance and forgiveness.


Kenya: Why we should all support polygamy

“We should not live with animosity because of religion rather should respect our religious beliefs, but should be gentile and exhibit maturity.


“We should stop inciting and inflammatory speeches that would over heat the polity and create more divisions and lack of sense of belonging.

“May we all imbibe this attributes so that our living will be meaningful and profitable for all.

“I wish you all happy celebrations and pray the Almighty Allah continue to bless us with love, peace and prosperity. I also appeal that we all stay safe as we celebrate.”

He also urged Nigerians not to lose hope on their elected representatives rather should support them to achieve the mandate they were given at the polls. That this trying moment especially in the mist of COVID-19 pandemic.
