The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2019 general elections, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, Waziri Adamawa, has appealed to Nigerians and all lovers of justice all over the world that the sacrifice to God for the good of others is the spirit of Eid al-Adha which is being celebrated by Muslims at this moment across the world.
Atiku in a statement narrated: “during Eid al-Adha, we honour the submission of the Patriarch, Prophet Ibrahim, to the wish of Almighty Allah to sacrifice his son. This feast is, therefore, a reminder for all of us to make sacrifices for the betterment of humanity.’
The Waziri Adamawa noted that there are happenings across the globe that reveal that the world is in dire need of love and peace.
“Thus, my message to the nation as we celebrate Eid al-Adha that we all have to sacrifice for the good of Nigeria. Everybody cannot sacrifice everything for Nigeria, but everyone can sacrifice something for her to move forward from the place of anger, bitterness, distrust and disunity,” Atiku declared.
He urged all Nigerians of faith to remember that God made every human for a purpose. “If He wanted to, God could have made us into many distinct nations. But in His wisdom, He made us all into one corporate, indivisible country.
“We must accept that we are not wiser than our Creator. Therefore, let us perish every thought of dividing Nigeria and focus our energies on reviving our fatherland,” Atiku advocated.
He maintained: “We should be willing to sacrifice for future generations of Nigerians who will not even be around to thank us.
“In my opinion, the first sacrifice we have to implement is to make Nigeria an equitable society where justice flourishes. Every cry of marginalisation will be silenced when the aggrieved see that there is national assimilation.
“Let us remember that Prophet Ibrahim left an inheritance and that is the cause of the celebration today.
“If we profess the faith of Ibrahim, we must likewise sacrificially manage our economy in a way that serves not just the present elite’s interests but the interest of successive future generations.
“Most importantly, at a leadership level, we ought to make sacrifices, the most immediate being to ensure that the fundamental rights of citizenry is respected and not repressed.
“I wish all Nigerians a happy Eid al-Adha. I wish I could be in every Nigerian home to share my Sallah feast with you and your families, but as that is not possible, permit me to send my love into all homes in this country to wish you the best today, tomorrow and forever,” Atiku articulated.
